Tropical Beach
We are OPEN this Saturday!
As Alexandria, and our farmers, continue to dig out of from under #Snowzilla, don’t forget that we are OPEN this weekend!  Swing by the market, grab some hot chocolate, and help us make snowmen out of any drifts still on the plaza!

Dang Kombucha

Spotlight on Kombucha from Number 1 Sons! 
If you’re a fan of Number 1 Sons, you know the joy that a little fermentation can bring to your life!  If you haven’t yet had the opportunity to try their kombucha, make sure to swing by their tent at market this Saturday.  Kombucha is a fermented tea with a slight, natural effervescence.  Grab enough to last for two weeks—No. 1 Sons is only at market every other week this winter.

Winter Grilling
Market to Table Recipe:  Are you ready to grill? 
This week’s market to table recipe must be prefaced with a question: How brave are you feeling?  With snow still on the ground, many of us are still nursing the effects of a cabin fever weekend, and winter grilling is the perfect antidote!  Grab a heavy jacket and charcoal and then pick up beef patties or frankfurters from Coulter Farms!  Don’t forget to pick up sauerkraut from Number 1 Sons to top it off!
