Farmers Market Report
The Red Bank Farmers Market was going strong on Sunday. We got organically-grown asparagus, first-pick Jersey strawberries, organic arugula, scallions, and fresh eggs.
I also saw bok choy, salad mix, radishes. Lots of plants. The usual bread and cheeses vendors. The Twisted Tree Cafe (of AP) has a booth and I got some vegan white bean soup. Really delicious.
