Kick Off Your Summer With Local Roots!

The Memorial Day weekend -- the unofficial start to summer -- is finally here, and at Local Roots, we've got plans to make the holiday weekend memorable!

First, the market is now open a third day! Starting this week, Local Roots will be open Thursdays from noon to 7 PM, making our market schedule a solid three days (also Fridays noon-7 PM and Saturdays 9 AM to 3 PM). As the growing season really kicks in, our producers will be bringing in more and more good, fresh, delicious food for you to enjoy.

And if you're heading out for a holiday picnic or family gathering this weekend, stop in at Local Roots for the freshest produce, the tastiest burgers (beef or chicken) or links (lamb brats, sausages, and more), wholesome breads, and sweet treats.

Felting With Tara returns Friday 5-7 PM and Saturday all day. Learn to make your own colorful felt creations! This is a fun activity for children and adults alike -- try it!

New at the market:
--Sherry's Classic Cuisine offers peanut, almond, and cashew butters as well as granolas and brown rice energy bars.
--Looking for flowers, herbs, or vegetables for the garden? Several producers have potted seedlings available at the market; come in and find the right one for your corner of the yard!

Members, don't forget to try ordering online: it's easy, fast, and gets you a sneak preview of what will be available each week. Need help? Stop by the market for a quick demo or handout.

Hope to see you at the market!
