Market Updates
Nothings says spring like snap peas and strawberries. Crispy, crunchy, sweet delights will abound at the Hollywood Farmers Market on Saturday. Send just one person from your household to pick them up this Memorial Day Weekend. And don't forget, now we have two entrances to the market: one at 44th Ave and Hancock Street, and another at 45th Ave and Hancock Street.

This week we welcome back two returning vendors! Maryhill Fruit Company has operated out of Maryhill, Washington for generations and will be offering their delicious asparagus. Laurel Ridge Winery joins us from Carlton, Oregon and focuses on cool-climate varietals of the Willamette Valley: primarily, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and sparkling wine.

Spring offers many exciting flavors to enjoy, whether it be fresh basil from
Sweet Leaf Organic Farm, cardoons from Stoneboat Farm, or morels from Nature's Wild Harvest and Peak Forest Fruit. It is a great time of year to celebrate abundance by eating a delicious meal prepared with ingredients grown in our local food shed.
Back this week: Dancing Light Ranch, Laurel Ridge Winery, and Maryhill Fruit Company.

Off this week: 503 Distilling, Dancing Light Ranch, Flying Coyote Farm, Freeland Spirits, Ken and June's Hazelnuts, Persephone Farm, and The Fermentista.

Every shopper's observation of our safety guidelines is what supports us to stay safe and stay open. Thank you for your continued engagement. We look forward to seeing you from afar at the market this weekend!
Recipe of the Week: Asparagus Lemon Risotto
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 celery stick, finely chopped
1 tbsp olive oil
300g (1.5 cup) risotto rice – Arborio, Carnaroli or Vialone Nano
2/3 C dry white wine
5 C vegetable stock - HOT
400g asparagus (1 bunch) – in 1" pieces
Zest of 1 lemon
salt and pepper to taste
Parmesan to serve

In a saucepan on medium heat saute onions and celery in oil until softened, about 15 min. Add rice, stir to coat well, and let it toast in the pan a few minutes before adding the wine. Let evaporate almost completely.

Lower the heat and start adding the stock ladle by ladle allowing rice to absorb it slowly. Stir often.

When you have used ⅔ of the stock, add asparagus and pour most of the remaining stock in. Turn the heat down and let it cook until the asparagus and rice are almost cooked through.

Stir in lemon zest and remaining stock to loosen up the consistency if it needs it. Season to taste.
