Mount Pleasant Farmers’ Market – May 9, 2015

Dear Friends of Mount Pleasant Farmers’ Market:

If you are celebrating Cinco de Mayo a little bit late, pick up some fresh produce for your party at the MtP Farmers’ Market. Grilled asparagus is always a hit! Try wrapping it in some bacon from one of our meat vendors!

And here is a fun article from one of my favorite food magazines, featuring recipes for several beverages for those of an appropriate age.
