Scenes from the May 27 Mill City Farmers Market

We met some new businesses at the May 27 Market: Darling Pickle Dips, Inesse Ceramics and Homegrown Foods. Look for these vendors in future "Get to Know" articles on our Farmers Market blog.

What's a Pickle Dip? Why, it's a tasty, versatile spread that starts with a white bean and cream cheese base, flavored with pickled veggies and spices. Sara Doherty and Britt Jungerberg, creators of Darling Pickle Dips, will be back for the June 24 Market.

Ben Fiess of Inesse Ceramics (below, right) creates what I would describe as functional art. You can put these beautiful pastel pieces to work as dishes or display them as art. Ben also has a line of arc necklaces. Inesse will return for the July 8 Market, plus several Saturdays in September.

Power of Produce! Every week this popular free program introduces kids to produce available at the Market, and provides them with a $2 chip to shop with. :)

If you pay attention, you'll discover something new at Market with each visit. This week it was lovage from Cherry and Tim of Holistic Health Farms. The cool thing about lovage is it has a celery flavor, with hollow stems sturdy enough to be used as straws in a Bloody Mary.

Love this girl! Kelli McManus and her business partner Jeff Casper of Dumpling and Strand where recently featured in a Pioneer Press article. At the May 27 Market they celebrated the company's 1 Year Anniversary with a Spin the Wheel game in which customers tried for a chance to win free pasta and many other prizes. We wish them continued success!
