John Fazio has brought in SMOKED RABBIT, along with rabbit and poultry cuts. Norwich has several kinds of basil, including lemon basil, thai basil, and everyday basil. Stokes has SHALLOTS, onions, squashes, garlic, beautiful lettuces, golden and other beets,greenhouse tomatoes, and greenhouse cherry tomatoes. Amantai, a newcomer to the market, has strawberries, onions, rhubarb, and greens.

Ardith has tasty goat cheeses.

This is the lasst weekend for Oak Grove's heiroom tomato plants, which are on sale for $7.50. If they aren't all bought this weekend, they'll be planted on the farm. Tree-licious has sweet and sour cherries and pastry. Madura has their usual excellent MUSHROOM choices. Miglorelli has all sorts of produce, including many kinds of radish, beet, lettuce, and sugar snaps, shell peas, and cherries, and strawberries. Lavender By The Bay has gorgeous fragrant lavender and locust flower honey. Berried Treasures has strawberries and sugar snap peas.

Two Guys From Woodbridge has a lot of good looking basil along with salad greens. Bodhitree has ZUCCHINI BLOSSOMS!!! They also have Tuscan Kale and FRESH CHICKPEAS, as well as their first hot peppers. Phillips has BLACK RASPBERRIES and red raspberries.

I think I saw Dancing Ewe pulling in as I left the market. If they're there, try their ricotta and other cheeses.
