You asked for more dining selections at the market...we have two vendors answering the call: Heathens Bakery & Stuft Waffles.
Heathens Bakery will be offering large and small charcuterie boxes, a caprese sandwich, and a salami and Swiss sandwich with roasted red pepper on their famous garlic, oregano, and rosemary focaccia bread starting this Thursday, May 25th at the farmers market! Prices start at $5.
Also at the market this week, Stuft Waffles will be bringing back their Monte Cristo Stuft Waffle! This is a wonderful twist on a classic: ham and cheese with a dollop of jam on the side, lightly dusted with powdered sugar. Be sure to see them before 6:30pm to get your order in.

Market Tokens Are Money!
You may have a goldmine just laying around your house! Did you know there are many market tokens circulating in our community and no one is using this valuable resource? Don't miss out...check your glove box, your junk drawer or the bottom of your purse. Tokens don't earn you interest or increase in value if you save them, so dig them out and bring them to the market. What will you buy if you find some at your house?
