Quick, Like Strawberry Season

Short update for a short week:

Strawberries will be in short supply this week, as the weather has wrought utter havoc on our barely-existent strawberry season. If you need berries, we urge you to come early.

Asparagus and rhubarb are winding down a bit - they'll still be at the Market, but the season is ending. Look, though, for plenty of lettuces, salad greens, spinach, green onions, plants, flowers, etc. 

New this week, we hope: BISON.

The bison folks, if all the pieces fall into place, will be located at the north end of the Market. 

Look for a full row of community groups on the west end of the Market this week - Amasong, Champaign County Bikes, AWARE, Eastern Illinois Foodbank, CIMIC, Habitat For Humanity, Community Center For the Arts, Crisis Nursery, UP Center, and others will be represented. Next week we'll offer seating in this area - it'll become a terrific place to hang out and chat, gather information, eat that pastry you bought, and take a break from shopping.

Sorry for the brevity, but there's a lot going on! Just know this: the weather is going to be warm and gorgeous Saturday morning. Please consider making the Market a part of your day if you don't already - and many thanks if you already do. We'll see you out there!
