Grapevine April 19 2009 Market

(post, Hillsdale Farmers' Market)

The market session this Sunday marks the end of the winter schedule. There is no market April 26th but we will be back to begin the 8th season on Sunday May 3, 2009. The weekly season will end on the Sunday before Thanksgiving, November 22, 2009. When the market returns to the weekly schedule, the no pet policy will again be in effect. Animals may return to the market in December. 

As I mentioned in the last newsletter, I will be sending out a market preview on April 23rd. There aren't too many changes but we will have a few new vendors and a few vendors have changed their schedules.

Verdura Culinary Gardens will be at the market again this Sunday and on April 19th to help you with gardening questions.

See you on Sunday!

Cooking Ideas - Alu Gobhi (Potato-Cauliflower Curry)

Trying to decide what seasonal item to focus on for the recipe can be tricky in the spring and fall. When Jeff Rosenblad of Happy Harvest Farm called and told me that he had a lot of cauliflower, I immediately thought of this recipe.  There are a lot of alu gobhi recipes around. Some recipes add peas, others add carrots but at its core, alu gobhi is about cauliflower and potatoes. It's really not hard to make and it tastes great. You can find the alu gobhi recipe above in our featured recipes or in or newsletter recipe box. Enjoy!
