Bring your little ones to our Farmers’ Market this Sunday when we’ll welcome Bricks for Kidz, which offers a variety of hands-on activities for children.

Kids can play at a classic LEGO® bricks table, a table with machines made from LEGOs® to create spin art, or a building table where they can construct motorized models with the help of a project kit.

They can also check out several displays of different motorized and robotic LEGO® models.

This week, our market welcome back Phillips Farms. You’ll find plenty of berry-licious, fresh-picked strawberries, along with an assortment of seasonal greens and loads of produce. Comeback Farm, Sandbrook Meadow Farm and AquaSprout Farm will all have fresh produce too.

Here are a few of this Sunday’s special deals and other noteworthy items from your local farmers and vendors:

Apple Ridge Farms has introduced a new farmers basket series: Onion Einkorn bread. They are calling it French Onion Herb, and it has roasted onion stock, fresh herbs and whole einkorn flour.

Burek by Zeni: Don’t feel like cooking? Burek by Zeni has what you’re looking for! This week Chef Zeni is making a special Mediterranean dish: fish with onions. It features fresh wild-caught boneless cod fish cooked with onions and herbs in the oven.

Comeback Farm is offering a special this week on its culinary herb bouquets: Buy a bouquet of all four herbs for just $9. With grilling season in full swing, Comeback Farm suggests tossing some of its tasty bok choi on the barbecue. Cut the bok choy in half long ways and dress it in olive oil and sea salt. Char on high heat and serve with your choice of dressing.

For dressings, Comeback suggests:

  • Farm Chimichurri — finely chop cilantro, parsley and scallions in with olive oil and red wine vinegar. Season to taste with salt, pepper, crushed red pepper.
    Dilly Sauce — finely chop dill into sour cream (or Greek yogurt), lemon juice, mustard and ground black pepper
