WHAT’S COOKING: Two Cool Salads (with fennel) for Too Hot Days

Hot days call for cool no-cook eats. These salads make excellent use of other summer produce you can find at the Market, paired with fennel, for cool crunchy salads that can stand alone or accompany all kinds of main dishes. Get recipes.

BONUS RECIPE: Picklied Fennel & Orange

BRFM volunteer, Andy Porter sent us his recipe for pickled fennel & orange. He says it’s great on sandwiches, thrown in a lettuce salad, or just for snacking. I’m thinking it would be especially good used like a slaw side with barbecue! Get recipe.

MUSICAL GUEST: North  – Whobilados

Whobilados play a mix of lively traditional tunes and originals blending multi-part vocals, with varied instruments, for their highly listenable music.  Be entertained while you shop for Mothers’ Day or take a break to sit and listen.

MUSICAL GUEST: South  – Mario Joven & Mike Ralph

This Saturday we are pleased to welcome back BRFM favorite Mario Joven with Mike Ralph on Dobro. Mario always brings together interesting artists for a great sound!  Come enjoy them with your coffee or just listen while you shop!


Our musicians volunteer to perform at the Market, so tips are much appreciated!
