This Week at Local Roots

Summer is off to a delicious start! We have lots of juicy and sweet black and red raspberries as well as blueberries this week, along with a tasty new vegetable: fava beans. In the freezer, you'll find more new products, such as sweet all-beef Italian sausage from Green Vista and fresh-frozen chickens from Rivenoak. Isn't it time you tried something new?

On Saturday, June 26 from 9 AM to noon
, Marlene Boyer will demonstrate recipes using fava beans and garlic scapes, two unusual produce items that may well become your favorites!

Also on Saturday, Susan English will entertain shoppers with her musical offerings from 11 AM to 1 PM.

If you're up for an adventure on Saturday, visit one of our producers for a tour! On Saturday, June 26 from 11 AM to 3 PM, Valley Grass Farm (2386 CR 200, Dundee, OH 44624) and the Yoder family welcome you to their homestead. Come experience a working grass-based dairy farm! The farm tour starts at 12:15 PM, and don't forget to bring a dish for a potluck lunch.

Later on Saturday, join us at Local Roots for a very special event. From 7 PM to 9 PM, local theatrical troupe "Murder with Reservations" will hold a table read for their new comedy murder mystery script, Killing the Cable Guy.

A table read is a group of actors doing a theatrical reading of the first draft of a script. This allows the writer to hear the dialog and decide what changes need to be made based on input from the actors and audience. This part of the creative process is usually held in a private or educational setting, so be sure to attend for a unique experience! Doors will open at 6:30 PM and the reading and discussion should wrap up around 9 PM. Refreshments will be available for purchase before the show and during the two breaks.
