The First Market

On Thursday we participated in our first Farmer's Market - the Highland MiMa.  It's a small, ultra-local community market, held on the patio of our neighborhood coffee joint Generous Servings

We had a great time at the market and were surprised to get such a large response from the community on our first day. We had a nice array of salad greens - 6 kinds of lettuce, spinach, arugula, wild rocket, garden cress, pepper cress, spicy micro greens, and mint. I found it is pretty tough to keep the greens from wilting, so I chatted with the wonderful Kipp Nash from Community Roots in Boulder, and he gave me some ideas to use next week.
