Memorial Day at the HFM:
Strawberries are HERE, but not for long! Between selling out fast and a short season, we advise you to grab them while you can. We came across a few recipes that seem easy and really highlight this powerhouse of a berry-- strawberry granita for your warmer days, whipped strawberry butter for slathering your baguettes, and a strawberry herbal mead for our more adventurous creators. You can find them at Blue Star Farm and Martin Farms right now, and a few other vendors a bit later in the season!

[Market is every Saturday, rain or shine. Hours are 9am to 1pm. Masks and distancing are recommended regardless of vaccination status.]
GREENS GREENS GREENS! Late spring-early summer is the best time to enjoy the wide variety of greens that are grown by our farmers. Spinach, bok choy, kale, chard, lettuces, mustards, micros, ohmy! They are all best before the heat of the summer and once fall comes around. There are heat-resistant varieties that are grown and shade cloths used, but something very special about greens grown at the start of the season.

You can find them with Bonhomie Farm, Scarecrow Farm, Blue Star Farm, Red Oak Farm, Farm at Miller's Crossing, and Martin Farm.
Micosta will have a variety of their delicious sandwiches for grab-and-go options. Loaded with fresh veggies, spreads, eggs, cheese, and meat, they make for the perfect bite.

For other grab-and-go options: check out Happy Belly's pesto toasts (get there before 10am because they always sell out of these gluten free vegan beauties) and Sparrowbush Farm's bialy (their tent smells amazing because of these and sometimes they even bring more baked goods mid-market).  
Cedar Flower Farm's has sweet peas! These flowers are romantic, vibrant, and smell heavenly. They offer them per stem, but you can bunch them together for a really lovely bouquet.
Along with marinara, vodka sauce, and Maplebrook cheeses, Billy's Italian Market will have a variety of Sfoglini pastas. Meant to be the one-stop-shop for your Italian suppers, this is the best spot to get what you need for an easy and delicious Sunday meal.
We also recommend grabbing:
one of Berkshire Mountain Bakery's pizza shells
one of Billy's pizza sauces and a container of burrata
one of Rock N Raw's pestos (made from local greens and cheeses)

Make yourself or your friends/family a Saturday night pizza! This is one of those meals that is ever-changing and a good way to showcase all the newest things at market!
This week we are welcoming Shaker Creek Farm-- they are a full season vendor who is starting a few weeks later than the rest of us. We are happy to welcome them in with organic chicken, farm bouquets, herbs, and more.
For guest vendors this week we are welcoming back OM Champagne Tea with fruit and botanical kombuchas and Outdoor Fellow with candle blends inspired from their time in nature.
Ron Tobin, who has played with Joel & Friends at the market, will be back for a solo gig this Saturday in the upper lot. Expect guitar, harmonica, some folky tunes and an all around good time! Very happy to welcome him back.
Here is a PDF of the federal, state, and city guidelines that we are following for COVID. Since we have so many of the same readers each week, we are going to forgo the usual POLICY and PROTOCOL sections to give you more content. Feel free to download it and review.
