Cows Around the Corner joins the market!
Cows Around the Corner, in Bethlehem, joins the market this week. Their cheeses and milk are made using local milk, in artisan batches. Both their cow and goat milk is locally sourced to support local farms. March Farm has previously brought some of their products to market, but Julie, who is a farmer and makes the products, will have a fuller array of their offerings. Please stop by and welcome her to the market and ask any questions you may have.
Each week we feature a product consistent with our recipe. This week it's garlic scapes which grow from hardneck garlic bulbs. Farmers trim them because they draw energy away from the forming bulbs. But that does not mean they are to be tossed. Scapes taste sweet, like a chive or scallion with a more mild—but familiar—garlicky zing. We feature Pickled Garlic Scapes for our recipe this week.
A reminder that vendor Hart Herbs, is committed to recycling. Any of you who have plant containers that you have no use for, please bring them to the market and leave them with Hart Herbs. They will find a way to reuse them rather than having them tossed.
The childrens' market activity will be another market scavenger hunt - to learn about the vendors and what they offer. Fruit and vegetable coloring pages are also available. Folks of any age are welcome to join in the fun! Everyone who participates gets to select a small prize.
Of note this week.
- Cows Around the Corner join the market with cow and goat milk products. Soft and hard cheeses. Yogurt.
- An Average Jill is with us this week, on her every other market schedule.
- Strawberries! Deeply Rooted Farm and March Farm are both question marks. Availability of crops from the field is the issue throughout the state.

SUSTAINABLE TIP OF THE WEEK
LEARN YOUR LOCAL RECYCLING RULES
Waste guidelines can be confusing, so reach out to your local waste treatment facility to find out exactly what they accept. You can also check our tips on How to Recycle, and be surprised to learn some things you’ve been dutifully tossing in the bin (i.e. yogurt cups) get incinerated or baled and sent to third world countries.
