Our regular fall hours continue this Saturday, opening an hour later:  9:00 to Noon. A little extra sleep, but still lots of reasons to come to the market.


It’s the ultimate comfort food. In the oven, it’s the best smell in the world. Dense, grainy, soft, and flaky – is there anything better than freshly baked bread?

Our bakers come each week with a heavenly assortment of creations to tempt your palate.

Each baker has a distinctive style. Come see what Artisan’s Bakery, Pasta e Pani, Whole-ly Rollers, Beach Biscotti, and My Vegan Sweet Tooth have this week. (Ever-popular Terrapin and The Bakery at Riverside Farm return on Sept. 20.)

You won’t be disappointed. How can flour and water combine in so many different ways? It’s pure alchemy.

Top your selection with some jam from local fruit, a salsa or pepper relish, or some cheese. Get a pie from Vy’s Pies, and life is good.

See you Saturday!


When is a seafood taco not a seafood taco? When it’s a bruschetta. Or panzanella salad. Or tucked in some bread and grilled for a panini or in two tortillas for a quesadilla.

I’ve got a great sauce for fish tacos – but its also good on those other items when grilled tofu or shredded chicken or pork is substituted instead.

My Creamy Chile Sauce adds sass; it is sour cream based, which provides a cooling effect on the other components, as well as a richness in taste and texture, and an enriching quality.
