|Kale, parsley, oregano and rhubard|
Let's take a look back at what May had to offer at the market.
|Asparagus, fennel, celery|
Additional greens that make their appearance early in the year are celery, fennel and bok choy along with a multitude of herbs like oregano, parsley and basil.
Remember if you see something that you're not familiar with, make sure to ask the farmer, they often have insightful preparation tips for you too. The tart stalks of rhubarb also made their way to the market within the first weekend accompanied by beautiful bright red and white radishes. The colours of spring were everywhere.
Strawberries arrived with their rosy red cheeks. Picked when ripe, these berries are incredibly juicy, sweet and flavourful, that's exactly how you'll find them at the market.

While there's plenty of food to buy to take home with you and prepare, there's also one great opportunity after another for you to "grow your own". This year we've seen almost every plant you can think of, from the traditional tomatoes, basil, peppers, lettuce, squash to the more unique trees and bushes like key lime, Meyer lemons, and olives.
There's no better way to buy local then to find what's in season at the farmers' market. For more pictures of what we have to offer, please check out our instagram page.
