Native to the northeast, gooseberries are tart-a bit like rhubarb and can be used for both sweet and savory dishes. Pick up a pint and then read this great overview (with recipes!) from Food52

New vendor Newell Farmlands visits tomorrow. They are a local company producing small batches of all-natural seasoning. Try it in your recipes for meat, poultry, pasta sauce, soups, and more. Made with a few simple ingredients, it adds a complex flavor to standard dishes. Taste for yourself...grab some ground beef from FarmEats and mix in the seasoning for a unique burger.

A new cheese producer is also visiting. McGrath Cheese Company‚Äč is a Hudson Valley cheese artisan committed to using the best milk from the best dairies in the Hudson Valley. His signature cheese is the Rascal, a raw cow's milk cheese that is aged 3-4 months, has a dense fudgy texture and is torched on its outer rind. He's bringing that, along with a wicked queso blanco, which is delicious on tacos, or any summer bruschetta.

Clean Ridge returns for their monthly visit...Handcrafted in Northern Westchester, their soaps and lotions are made with all-natural ingredients that won't irritate your skin. Their gift baskets make lovely house guest gifts for any of you who will be traveling this summer.

The BBQ truck visits again...grab some grub and stay for a performance by Heartwood.

See you at the market!
