The Circus & Bluebird Grain Farms

Unless you got to the market early on April 26, 2009, you missed the UC Berkeley Men's A Cappella Octet singing doo-wop songs in front of Lucca great finds. They were singing for fun and gas money on their way to a competition in Vancouver, BC. The Circus Contraption band performing at the Market. Photo copyright 2009 by Zachary D. Lyons.

Circus Contraption was also running amuck of the Market, performing and promoting their soon-to-close-forever Show To End All Shows in the Theo Chocolate factory, next to our sister market in Fremont.

Speaking of running amuck, those wacky guys at Wilson Fish were up to their usual antics this Sunday... besides selling an awful lot of fish.

Washington is the rhubarb capitol of the world, and besides asparagus, it is a sure sign that spring is here for good. Alm Hill and Stoney Plains had it this week, with more to come next.

You missed the introduction of Golden Glen Creamery's newest cheese, too -- its cow's milk feta. Hmm, you know what feta would work well in? A nice emmer salad. And if you missed the Market this week, you missed to arrival of Bluebird Grain Farms with emmer, rye, wheat and all different milled varieties of them, to boot.
