The market has been the destination for many new customers this week. Word is getting out about fresh Michigan strawberries, Double Up Food Bucks and the diversity of good food available each market day. It is fun to talk with people the first time they visit but even better when they return — sometimes the very next day with stories to tell and smiles on their faces. If you are a long time market supporter, challenge yourself to try something new — lemon balm, jowl bacon, heirloom tomato plants, fingerling potatoes, winter savory, duck eggs, Swiss chard…the list goes on and on. If it your first time, ask lots of questions. The vendors want to help you make a selection and prepare it perfectly. Stop by the market office to use your credit card or double the spending power of your Bridge Card. The thrill of discovery never ends and always tastes good!
