What's at the Market This Week

Thomas Jefferson had asparagus beds at Monticello and often ate it marinated in oil, red wine vinegar, capers and herbs.  According to the book, “Dining with the Washingtons” (Nancy Carter Crump, 2011) George Washington preferred the asparagus from his gardens in a ragout with onions, endive and lettuce.

Asparagus is ridiculously good for you.  It’s a very good source of vitamins K, E, Folic Acid, B1, B2, C, selenium, and folates.  It’s high in anthocyanins—an important antioxidant.  It’s also a good source of glutathione—which helps to break down free radicals.  And, as mentioned above, only has 32 calories in a whole cup and is a great source of dietary fiber.

My favorite way of fixing it is drizzling it with a little soil oil, sprinkling with some lemon-pepper and oven-roasting.  And it's here this week!
Phal's Cafe will be here with delicious Asian food; Real Country Sausage will be here with a variety of nitrite/msg-free pork sausages; and Unkol Chuck will be here with cast-iron kettle cooked Brunswick stew.

Great Harvest Bread will be here with fresh-baked breads; Sweet Treats RVA will be here with delicious pies, cookies, tarts, etc; Vera's Vittle with a great selection of healthy salt-free seasonings; 22 Oaks Garden with fresh herbs and beautifully made hand-crafts; and Pop's Kettle Corn with several varieties of popcorn.

Marty will be here with fresh-prepared pork rinds in a variety of flavors and Mrs. Yoder's Donuts will be here with their delicious sourdough donuts; and Alfredo will be here with local raw honey, bee pollen, and honeycomb.

We have a great selection of one of a kind handcrafts from local artisans.

New this week:  We welcome Snyder Family Farm with pasture raised chicken, free-range eggs, and grass-fed beef.

Remember we’re here every Thursday from 10 until 2 in the parking lot of The Great Big Greenhouse.
