Market – Saturday, May 24

It’s starting again! First market of the 6th Capital City Farmer’s Market season will open at the 9am bell on Saturday morning on the corner of Sioux Avenue and Coteau Street.

Spring has been chilly, thus the ground has been taking its sweet time warming up to temperatures where seeds will germinate. This week and next week will be good for the soil and the seeds. Radishes, which usually love cool weather and germinate quickly, took more than double the time to pop through the top soil. Now, they’re growing and we should have crisp, spicy radishes in a couple weeks. I can’t wait for my first chorizo taco with radishes!

There was an excellent article in the Capital Journal highlighting one of our vendors, Medicine Gardens. If you haven’t had a chance, go online and read about Jesse and Meredith’s quest to locavore heaven. My favorite part of the article was the end. “And the reason to be a locavore, Jesse Wilkens said, is as simple as the first ripe tomato of the season. ‘For me, it’s the same as catching a walleye and bringing it home for dinner,’ Wilkens said. ‘It’s as good as it gets.’“

And that’s the spirit we bring to market every Saturday. Each of us eats what we grow/bake. We use what we create. The market allows us to share some of our lives with you. And, allows you to be a part of ours. Your quest to locavore heaven can be as big or small as you make it. But the point is to make it, even if it’s a little step each season. Each piece you add is another step toward a healthier you and a healthier planet.

We hope to see you Saturday!
