Dear market friends,

Wowza-- opening day was a HIT! Thanks so much for your support and patience with us last week. We heard many customers share their market visit was one of the safest grocery shopping experiences since the start of the pandemic, and we are so grateful to read.

This Sunday, we're excited to introduce 5 non-farmer vendors to our line up. You will find them scattered throughout, though most will be on the East lawn of the market, see map below. Stay tuned for announcements on when the rest of our line up will join. Until then, keep shopping from them via our virtual market.

In case this week's subject line pun doesn't hit -- I present you the garlic scape. This Dr. Seuss-type veggie is chopped off of garlic plants to ensure they send all of their energy to produce the perfect garlic bulb. Most farmers have them this week, enjoy their short season while you can by sautéing them with nearly anything you'd usually add garlic to. They taste like softer, sweeter versions of garlic cloves. Grab a few bunches this Sunday and your tastebuds can thank us later ;)

Be there or be (Logan) Square,
Rosie
LSFM Manager
