PREVIOUSLY AT THE MARKET

Last week, a rainy day kept some neighbors at home, but many waited for the dry spells to come out to visit vendors and goats. The Market is open rain or shine unless the weather is dangerous.

The baby goats that Kim of Clover Meadow Creamery brings every week always get a lot of attention from children and adults. They are soft and love to be cuddled. Kim likes to give urbanites the chance to see and touch a farm animal.

Kim shows off this week's baby goat.

Petra knitted a goat to serve as a mascot for the Market.

The knitted goat will need a name.

Jeanne and Gerard Weber have a busy schedule with gigs all around Monroe County. They played under the Music Tent last week.

Musicians like that shoppers at our Market will sit and listen for a while.

RECIPE FOR THIS WEEK

Selected by Maxine Manjos

Tomato Chickpea Salad

I caught on a while ago that an easy way to boost the protein in a salad is to add some chickpeas. This recipe surprised me because of an added that step that can really enhance the flavor: cooking the chickpeas in a little oil until they are slightly blistered. How far you go with this step is up to you, but a mildly charred bean can put a little unexpected oomph into salads-- they can get a little routine, can't they? Here's a way to add a new flavor.
