You don’t have to cook fancy or complicated masterpieces – just good food from fresh ingredients.” – Julia Child

Don’t let the Spring showers dampen your spirits! Join us today at the Old Town North Farmer’s and Artisan’s Market.

Congratulations to our vendor Ana Garcia of Ana’s Twist. Ana’s sorbet, a specialty in her country of Ecuador, has been chosen by the Ambassador of Ecuador to represent Ecuador at the 20th Annual Food Festival of the Americas Celebrating the Cultures of America and Other Regions of the World. Sunday, May 20th from 1-5pm.

Farmer Lionel Lopez of Lopez Farms continues to share the bounty of his family farm in Warsaw, Virginia, bringing us fresh produce, herbs, and ornamental plants for the garden or balcony and… strawberries! He sold out last week, so stop be early if you can.

Sara from Dream of Goodies continues to delight us with new creations. This week she offers almond anise biscotti, only baked once for a soft texture, but can always be baked again for those who like to dunk it in their coffee; vegan cake jars in tiramisu or coconut chocolate chip, vanilla cake with layered with lemon curd and fresh organic blueberries, cupcakes including the popular lemon zest and vanilla with chocolate avocado frosting; whoopie pies, and mini cakes in cardamom, carrot, or spiced rum.

Shrub District returns to us this week with a wide selection of vinegars and shrubs, perfect for cocktails, sipping with sparkling water, or cooking. All are lovingly crafted with fruits and vegetables from local farms.

Our newest vendor, With Love Lemonade, joins us on May 31st. Save the date for specialty fresh squeezed gourmet flavored lemonades and limeades. Refreshing and healthy!
