Hang the bunting and fly the flag. Clean the grill and stock up on paper plates. And be sure to make a trip to the Market this Saturday. It’s the last chance you’ll have before the big Fourth of July celebration next Thursday!

You’ll need meats for the grill, buns, bread, cheeses, dips, guacamole & salsa, and condiments. How about tomatoes and onions for burgers? Ingredients for salads would be good. Veggies for snacking are always a winner.

And don’t forget dessert. Strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, and peaches would be a great way to top off a cookout meal. Make it ala mode with a scoop of ice cream, and who wouldn’t love a fresh-baked pie with that?

While you’re at it, enjoy one of the many breakfast selections available from our vendors along with a coffee and some live music. I can’t think of a better way to spend a Saturday morning.
