The Broadway Community Market starts up again this Saturday, and there is so much to be excited about! Chow down on a breakfast platter from Jillian’s Farmstead kitchen, sip an iced coffee or flavored lemonade from The Teacher’s Bouquet, listen to live music from Psalm 150, enjoy a performance by the Glitterettes, and browse all of the morning’s vendors! There will be baked goods, pastured eggs and meat, jams, pickles, jewelry, art, and so much more. We’ll be set up 8 a.m. until noon, rain or shine.

Here’s a peek at what you can expect at the Fairydiddle Farm booth:

  • fish scrubbies (great for dishes or bath time!)
  • dish cloths
  • skillet handle covers
  • fish bowl stuff-and-spill toys
  • market bags
  • kale (first of the season!)
  • aloe plants

It’s a bit early yet for most crops, but they will be trickling in as the season progresses. Radishes are sprouting, the peas are getting taller by the day, and lettuce and green onions should show up on the table in a few weeks too!

I’m also looking forward to summer vegetables, with yellow and red onions (new this year!) and garlic growing beautifully in the garden already. Many other seedlings are staying warm under the grow lights still: slicing cucumbers, cucamelons, bell peppers, jalapenos, slicing tomatoes, paste tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, and sweet potatoes. Mmmm, summer.

In the meantime, come celebrate spring and the beginning of a new market season this Saturday at the Broadway Community Market, 8 a.m. to noon.

See you at the market!
