First Evanston Market Saturday May 8

Here's a sneak peak at some of the things coming up this week, starting with Teresa's beautiful strawberry baskets (to the left). These are beginning to bear sweet red berries . . . just in time for Mother's Day.

Teresa will also have her Aronia Jam (another good mother's day gift), as well as a wonderful array of herb and vegetable starts.

See photos below, and click on the April 2010 entry for the full list of starts. Make your wish list, and bring it to the market with you. There's nothing like growing your own -- whether you have a big yard or a tiny windowsill.

Also, at Teresa's Fruit and Herbs, there will be fresh-cut, aromatic tarragon, oregano, thyme, lovage, chives and mint -- perfect in salad dressings, egg dishes, soups, or with fish and meat. Can you identify the lovage and chives in the photos below?
