Spring Time Harvest

Springtime Harvest- Discover the Season's Bounty

Spring is the season of new beginnings and the farmers market is no exception! As we say goodbye to the chilly winter months, we’re excited to welcome a vibrant variety of fresh produce to our market tents.

From the tender green peas to the versatile snap beans, our farmers have been working hard to cultivate the best Spring harvest for you. Let your taste buds be your guide as you explore the many flavors and textures of Spring – from the subtle sweetness of cucumbers to the earthy richness of potatoes.

Whether you’re a seasoned market-goer or a first-timer, we guarantee that there’s always something new to discover at our market.

Nutrition Corner

Fats aren’t always bad! Unsaturated, saturated, and trans fats all fall into the same macronutrient category, but have different effects on your body. 

Unsaturated fats are considered “good fats,” trans fats are considered “bad fats,” and saturated fats are considered okay in a limited amount. Unsaturated fats help to decrease cholesterol levels in the body to promote brain and heart health. These good fats are liquid at room temperature and are found in nuts, seeds, oils, avocado, eggs, and fatty fish. 

On the other hand, consuming too much saturated fat can increase cholesterol and clog arteries, slowing blood flow throughout the body. While consuming some saturated fat is okay, it is recommended that no more than 10% of your diet come from these fats. 

Choose your fats wisely and make simple substitutions for optimal health! Check out our dairy, egg, meat, seafood, and pecan vendors to incorporate fats into your diet this week and every week!

Crumb-Coated Red Snapper

Recipe from Taste of Home


1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 red snapper fillets (6 ounces each)
2 tablespoons olive oil


  1. In a shallow bowl, combine the bread crumbs, cheese, lemon pepper and salt; add fillets, one at a time, and turn to coat.
  2. In a heavy skillet over medium heat, cook fillets in oil, in batches, until fish just begins to flake easily with a fork, 4-5 minutes on each side.
