Scenes from the June 17 Mill City Farmers Market

June 17 was Brain Health Day at the Mill City Farmers Market, and MCFM sponsor American Academy of Neurology (AAN) once again held their bike helmet giveaway. By 8:00am there was a line of shoppers trailing down the block and around on Washington Avenue, patiently waiting to receive one of the 1,000 complimentary helmets. Look for additional pictures and information on our Farmers Market blog later this week.

After the wicked hail storm this past Sunday, I was worried how our produce vendors fared. Despite this Loon Organics sign explaining why the produce might look a little ugly this week, we still found a beautiful selection.

The Meet Your Vegetables nutrition interns are back! They feature quick, easy, and seasonal recipes for customers to sample, along with recipe cards to take home. The Meet Your Vegetables program is sponsored by Allina Health. This week's recipe was Raw Asparagus Salad, which is made by shredding asparagus into ribbons with a vegetable peeler, and then tossing the shreds with lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper.

Like many others who encounter garlic scapes for the first time at the Market, I was sceptical. But it didn't take long to get hooked, and now I look forward to this seasonal treat every year.
