In case you missed it (really, how could you?), the cicadas have arrived! And, boy, do they make their presence known! Did you know that cicadas are considered good luck in the south of France!? Me either! But our own amazing Chef Patrice assures us it is true, so let’s enjoy the little buggers and appreciate the luck they apparently are bringing our way. Stop by J’aime Madeleine to grab a cookie (or a dozen!) and hear all about it! Watch the cicadas fly (and pick up your goodies for the long weekend) at Barrett Elementary School on Saturday, May 29, from 8 a.m. to noon. And don’t forget your pre-orders for Saturday pickup! We’ll see you at the Market!
Market Policy Reminders:
- Face coverings are recommended for all persons attending the market. Vendors are required to wear face masks.
- Subject to further clarification from the Governor, two-way traffic is back!!! (But, please bear with us if things change between publication of this newsletter and market opening!)
- Please no eating or drinking in the market (maybe? we’re still awaiting clarification on this one!). For now, let’s assume that customers should pick up prepared foods and exit the main market area before consuming goodies. Up-to-date info on market day!

- Please don’t come to the market if you are unwell or at high-risk.

RECIPE OF THE WEEK
Apparently, people are eating them. I am not. I couldn’t even stomach the pictures much less bring myself to try a recipe. But, maybe you are more adventurous than me! Here’s a few to try. Stop by the Market Tent and tell us your favorite and maybe, when the cicadas return in 17 years, we’ll publish a recipe. Maybe….
