Market Feature Today (April 30, 2011)

Proud owners of "Gabie's Garden Vegetables"

We had another great day at the market with several foods, flowers, soaps, and wool items. The day was bright, beautiful, and full of healthy cheer as people made their way through the market. Some people would stop and chat for a while and others took in as much information as they could on the best way to plant your tomatoes to the best way to cook a roast. The master gardener was there as well to answer any gardening questions you may have.Today’s featured market vendor this week is “Gabie’s Garden Vegetables.” Richard and Gabie Schultz of Wake Forest work together to bring pesticide free produce to the market each week. They always have a variety of healthy goodies to choose from. Bok Choy, Heirloom Lettuces, Spinach, and herbs were available today. Several varieties of pepper plants and tomato plants as well as basil and other herb plants were ready for purchase and planting. I actually purchased some tomato and Red Russian Kale plants for my little garden. Here is a look at some of the items this week’s featured market vendor had:

The Markets Opened Today…

Lettuce

Many of the farmers markets in my area (Wake Forest, Durham, and Carboro) opened today. It’s like a family reunion going back to the market after what seemed like a really long winter.  Seeing all of the old vendors was great and I also met a few new vendors for this year. This is an exciting time of year where the season, our pallets, and available local foods change. There was honey, lettuce, spinach, eggs, organic meats, and jams available. Plenty of bedding plants were also in great quantities if you are like me and want to grow some of your own vegi’s.

This is some of the lettuce mix I purchased. I cannot wait for my taste buds to experience the mixture of flavors! Until next week be healthy, wealthy, and wise!
