News from our Official Market Bloggers
Strawberries and Biscuits
Denine Gorniak (The Bicycle-Chef) braved the rainy weather of SAT MAY 13 to get her strawberries from ATBuzby at the Market. The few that survived long enough to make it into the recipe are pictured here. Read the story and the recipe here.
Only Villa Barone and Sara’s Produce will join us, both near the intersection of Haddon Avenue, just inside DanLynn Organic and King Kernel corn.
The May Fair week is the only one of the season when we’re dislodged from our usual location by about one block to the north. We set up along Irvin Avenue between Perkins Art Center and Haddon Avenue.
