I didn’t manage to get a post out on last week’s market, so this one will include both the markets on May 18 and 25th.
On May 18, there was a wine tasting scheduled, but our tasting guide’s plane was delayed. She was too late, so Anne’s beautiful sign was for naught!
But What a Great Sign!
Her music sign, for Jeff Burnett, was equally lovely and more truthful - Jeff really was there.

And speaking of plants, the Sherwood High School horticulture program sold the plants raised in their greenhouse.
Sherwood Sells Plants
We have a new vendor selling Asian-style sugarcane drinks. Some of our patrons are familiar with these drinks, but for others it’s a new experience. Just as we provide a wide range of fruits and vegetables, so we try to have new and different food and drinks at the Market. Stop by and try some - they give samples!
A Sweet, Juicy Treat
Remember when Ike Leggett, the County Executive, came to Opening Day? The official copy of the Certificate of Recognition and Appreciation has arrived. Janet Terry, our President and Market Master, posed with it proudly. Stop by the Information Booth and admire it on Sunday!
We Are Recognized and Appreciated
Last Sunday, our chef was Matt Baker of the Occidental Restaurant in DC. The sign was again produced by our terrific graphic artist, Anne Rickert, who posed by her work.
Chef Matt showed us how to make a Grilled Asparagus and Strawberry Salad, with Goat Cheese, Arugula, and Salsa Verde. Very seasonal, and very tasty.
Consider the Asparagus
He had the audience enthralled with his exposition on asparagus and green dressing.
Everyone Watches Chef Matt
Meanwhile there were other signs of spring: English peas, sugar snaps and cherry tomatoes at Pleitez;
And a Spanish Lesson Too!

The Hats Are To Tell Them Apart
See you this Sunday!
