Hello fabulous Fearrington Market supporters!
Greetings from the kitchen! The cool weather has finally joined us! A little rain and we'll all be happy.
We're using the delicious field greens this week - we've made Dandelion Greens White Lasagna and our first-of-the-season greens bake. We're also making our eggplant ragu with Screech's eggplant and the last of Marshall's tomatoes.
Of course there will be some soup and a few olive oil dark chocolate brownies.
Swing by our booth and let Barbara and Becca know what you'd like us to cook for you!
Thank you so much for your support - we appreciate it!
Barbara, Becca and Angelina

There will be a rack full of colorful mixed bouquets, a bucket of brilliantly colored zinnias and bunches of sunflowers and celosias. Plan on taking home some "local color" this week.
