Returning from Week 1 are Stone Circle Farm with their lovely display of organic produce and Glen Rock Farms with grass-fed, grass-finished lamb. Three additional vendors join our stellar lineup: Hidden Springs Creamery (award winning sheep milk cheese), JenEhr Family Farm (turkeys, rabbits, chicken, organic produce) and Rolling Meadows Sorghum Mill (honey, sorghum, maple syrup). Our producers’ page on the market website has links to more detailed information about all the MCWFM vendors.
Expect the unexpected: David Kozlowski of Pinehold Gardens (Oak Creek) is a renowned kale aficionado and suggested sampling a kale salad this week using components sourced from our produce growers. I agree, Dave, it’s time to shine a culinary spotlight on a vegetable that is often bypassed at a time of year when it’s most abundant, flavorful and tender. Depending on time constraints we will have either kale chips or salad.
