Welcome to the Market
Join us each Tuesday from 3:00-7:00pm for the market at the lovely Piazza Park in beautiful downtown Renton.
Did you miss our opening day last week? If you did, you were one of the few! We were so happy to see over 4,200 of our friends to our first market of the season - making it one of the best attended opening days at the market ever. This week may see a little bit of rain, so break out your best Washington weather gear and make the market your weekly habit!
Washington Cherries have arrived - Chelan and Rainier varieties will be at the market, we expect to see a few new varieties of Strawberries as well.
On the vegetable front, we can expect asparagus (rumor has it this is the last week), lettuce and greens, onions, carrots, potatoes, cabbage, cucumber, cauliflower, hothouse tomatoes, beets, and fresh herbs cilantro and parsley should be available. Be sure to follow us on Social Media - we will be posting pics and updates of our vendor arrivals and the produce they are bringing.

Challenge: "I just don't have time to chop all those vegetables."
Solution:: It's true, cooking healthy meals at home can mean a lot of time spent washing and chopping veggies. Try prepping veggies for two or more meals at once. For example, if you're making tacos tonight and stir fry tomorrow night, chop enough onions, bell peppers, and cabbage for both meals. Put half of the chopped veggies back in the fridge to make your stir fry prep tomorrow much quicker and easier! Some of our cooking class grads pre-chop vegetables for all their weeknight meals on Sunday afternoon, when they have more time. Pro tip-this is called "mise en place" by chefs, using the French term for having all your ingredients measured, cut, peeled, sliced, grated, etc. before you start cooking. This is how food professionals get a complicated recipe ready and onto a customer's table in a short amount of time. You don't have to prepare every ingredient in advance; even just chopping your vegetables will save you valuable time!
