The MyMarket locations began last week. I visited two-- Sick Kids and Borden Street. Each was a few vendors short of a full market. As berries and other fruits ripen, we hope that Andrews Scenic Acres, O.K. Farms, and Bizjak Farm will reappear. Haystrom which has good tomatoes and potatoes may be a little later in joining the lineup.
Once again, she who hesitated lost. I spotted baby beets at Collins booth but they were gone when I went back to buy them. Fortunately, I was luckier next day at Borden. Well, luckier in some ways: I got my beets but also got sopping wet in the downpour that greeted the first day of this market.
Only Bosco/Sweetiebelle had plants on offer. Their pots of eggplant looked particularly healthy.
Ruth Klahsen and the Monforte Dairy(www.monfortdairy.com) are back! Alas, there is no creme fraiche yet but a good selection of cheese and yogurt. It is still possible to join in the CSA project --cheese for you, a new dairy for them.
