from Maryrose:

Hello Folks,

I feel like I have just recovered from Monday's pick up. Thanks for your patience throughout the busy day. My fridge was begging for some local food. Six weeks was a long wait. Thank goodness we only have to wait four weeks this time. That reminds me - two more Monday pick ups left. We will be moving back to Fridays in May.

Our farmers are eagerly awaiting the spring to get their fields growing for us. Most of their stocks are out or running low. It has been very exciting to add new items to the offering list this week instead of only removing items. It looks like we are at the end of the squash. There are very few left compared to the surplus we have had all winter.
  • I tried Anna Tolazzi's new white chocolate and cherry bar today. She has named it "Snowbird" and it is amazing - I highly recommend it. She is amazing at pairing flavours. I wish I had that ability.
  • Paul Bowman has fresh green garlic. It is similar in size to a green onion, but with a garlic flavour. He also has many more greens available.
  • Apple Creek has some frozen elderberries available. Makes a great Cordial! You can find them in the 'other' section.
  • The stewing beef from Vibrant farms is still on sale!
  • For all those who have missed out on eggs over the last few months, we have good news. New chickens have arrived at the Traditional Foods farms this month. This means more eggs for us!
  • I also spoke with Stewart from Floralane on Wednesday. He confirms all of their greenhouse tomatoes will be available for our March pick up. I can't wait to make a Caprese Salad. Here is the recipe:

Caprese Salad
2 tomatos sliced (Floralane)
1 ball Fiore Di Latte - Fresh Mozzarella (Local Dairy)
Fresh basil leaves sliced (Pfennings)
Drizzle olive oil & balsamic vinegar (you could use sunflower oil and one of the infused vinegars if you want to keep it local)
Minced garlic, salt & pepper to taste.
Arrange the slices of tomato and cheese. Place slices of basil through out the plate. Drizzle both olive oil and vinegar. sprinkle on garlic, salt and pepper.
