mill city farmer’s market: the goods

May 11, 2010


Thank goodness the farmer’s markets are finally opening in Minnesota! I have been waiting for this moment for well over a month (perhaps my own fault, since I over-excitedly thought opening day was April 8th, instead of May 8th…sad).

Anyway, the time has finally come and since we live less than a mile from our local farmer’s market, I think a saturday morning walk here will become a summer staple.

Produce is not exactly abundant yet, but there are other fun things to be had at this market, such as:

This whole wheat cinnamon raisin bread which is pretty much amazing toasted with butter.
extra sharp minnesota cheddar

Rhubarb! Prepare for some baked goodness soon, friends.

What would you make with rhubarb?

We ventured to Mill City on Saturday, loved but was SO cold we didn't stay too long! I felt so bad for the band playing and the people working!

I made rhubarb strawberry ice cream and rhubarb tea for Mother's Day. I can't wait to see what you do with it!

I adore rhubarb and would totally go with a strawberry rhubarb pie (or crisp!) :D
