We are in our third week at the Black Diamond Farmers Market and things are heating up!
Come over on Friday between 11 and 3 for awesome fruit and veggies! The big harvest for cherries this year has yielded a variety of varieties including the Rainiers, Dark Sweet Cherries and a new one called “Strawberry Cherries.” They are all prime in freshness and sweetness!
Load up on fresh asparagus, peas, leeks and anything that looks good for the weekend. Strawberries are incredible this year and ours are picked fresh in the morning! One little basket won’t last long–get a half flat and be ready to eat them right out of the box; they are so sweet that sugar isn’t necessary.
New and notable are our food vendors. Frank’s FRANKS is a real hit here with rich, fresh beef dogs and all the fixings. He gets pretty creative with apple sausage and spicy links as well!
Everyone is raving about the pizza vendor–A FIRE INSIDE. Their truck actually contains a wood fired brick oven that heats up to over 600 degrees! Ultra thin crust cradles fresh ingredients and you can stand and watch as it bakes in minutes.
Be sure to get some strawberry shortcake this week because they won’t be back until late July! These are CJ’s fresh, flaky biscuits, ladled with heaps of sweet berries and piled high with rich cream.
Probably the best strawberry shortcake I’ve ever had!
Our feature vendor this week is Paperdelle’s Pasta and they sell exclusively at Farmer’s Markets! Variety, quality and a huge array of shapes and sizes of pastas will blow your mind. They put the dried pasta section of any grocery store to shame; come and meet these folks!
Schwann’s, Smith Brothers Milk, Juice Plus, jewelry, crafts and many other offerings will be here this Friday.
Plus live music with two different bands…
I never leave this market without armloads of fresh food and beautiful crafts. School is out, summer is here.
Come on down!
