Get a Breath of Fresh Air!

The weather this week has been telling us that spring is, indeed, on its way -- isn't that great? And if you have any further doubts, stop in at Local Roots this Saturday.

If the online order system is any indication, more farmers will have fresh spring greens such as spinach and salad mix available for sale. Add a little local cheese, some minced green onions, a slice of wholesome bread on the side -- welcome spring with an early salad!

And if that's not enough of an idea to get you into the kitchen, we have two tasty cooking demonstrations on Saturday:

9-11 AM: Karen Geiser (of Karen's Garden Delights) will show you how to make yogurt and soft herb cheese with Hartzler Family Dairy milk. The yogurt features Schmidt Family Farms' raspberry honey, and the cheese will include Adonai Acres' dried herbs and be served on toasted Desem bread from Valley Grass Bakery. How can you resist?

11:30 AM-1:30 PM: Dawn McLaughlin (of In the Garden) will offer samples of a savory sweet potato and sausage skillet dish using her own bulk sausage. Save room for this at lunchtime, and grab a roll from the bakery case to go with it.

You never know what we'll be cooking up this spring at Local Roots!
