Mount Pleasant Farmers’ Market – April 29, 2017

Dear Friends of Mount Pleasant Farmers’ Market:


It will be a great day at the Market, warm & sunny, then head out for the People’s Climate March.


Do you have a Farmers’ Market recipe that you would like to share?  Send it along, thanks!


Asparagus and Mushroom Frittata


Prep -10 m; Cook – 40 m; Ready In – 50 m  Recipe By: MAGGIDEW  “This is one of my favorites. The most important thing (I think) is to cook it slowly so the eggs stay tender.”



1 tablespoon butter

3 tablespoons olive oil

1/2 pound fresh asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1 inch pieces

1/2 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced

6 eggs

1 tablespoon water

1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme

3 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese

1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese



Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).

Melt butter in an oven-safe skillet over medium heat. Stir in olive oil and asparagus, and cook until the asparagus is tender, about 10 minutes. Stir in the mushrooms, and continue cooking about 5 minutes.


In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, water, and thyme. Pour into the skillet, and reduce heat to low. Cover, and cook 5 minutes.


Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven. Bake 10 to 15 minutes, until eggs are no longer runny. Top the mixture with Parmesan cheese and mozzarella cheese. Turn on the broiler, and broil until cheeses are melted and lightly browned.

People’s Climate March – On the 100th Day of the current Administration, we will be in the streets of Washington D.C. to show the world and our leaders that we will resist attacks on our people, our communities and our planet.


We will come together from across the United States to strengthen our movement. We will demonstrate our power and resistance at the gates of the White House. We will bring our solutions to the climate crisis, the problems that affect our communities and the threats to peace to our leaders in Congress to demand action.

We invite you to join the Peoples Climate Movement on Saturday, April 29th as we march to:


-Advance solutions to the climate crisis rooted in racial, social and economic justice, and committed to protecting front-line communities and workers.

-Protect our right to clean air, water, land, healthy communities and a world at peace.

-Immediately stop attacks on immigrants, communities of color, indigenous and tribal people and lands and workers.

-Ensure public funds and investments create good paying jobs that provide a family-sustaining wage and benefits and preserve workers’ rights, including the right to unionize.

-Fund investments in our communities, people and environment to transition to a new clean and renewable energy economy that works for all, not an economy that feeds the machinery of war.

-Protect our basic rights to a free press, protest and free speech.


March on April 29th as we come together to resist and march for our families, our communities and our planet.  https://peoplesclimate.org/  https://www.facebook.com/peoplesclimate/
