Westover Farmers Market will be closed in celebration of Easter on Sunday, April 5. We humbly suggest that you factor this into your shopping plans tomorrow. Especially the eggs.
If you’re in the neighborhood over Easter weekend, check out the annual Westover Easter Egg Hunt, which will take place behind the Library on Saturday April 4 from 10:30 am to noon. More information available here. Guaranteed fun for kids and kids at heart.
The Westover Farmers Market has caught the attention of local food designer, Stephanie Ortiz. Using seasonal ingredients from the market, she is now featuring custom-developed recipes on the International Palate blog. Every other week she will share a market-unique creation with us that will inspire our own food creativity! Her first Farmers Market Friday recipe is Beet Pizza.
Granted, “spring” remains a relative concept in the context of this week’s weather, but in any case, don’t forget to set your clocks forward one hour this evening as we move into daylight savings time. Then spring out of bed in the morning and visit the farmers market in the warming temperatures – who knows, the snow might even be fully melted. Your favorite vendors will be back in force with seasonal fruits and vegetables. The wide range of breads, meats, and specialty items offered will allow you to replenish your depleted store of locally sourced foods. And that should put a smile on your face and an extra spring in your step as we edge into the spring season. Market hours remain 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
