A message from the folks at the Byrd House Market: “Yikes, it looks like rain and thunderstorms on Tuesday. We will be here, rain or shine…if it is raining too hard, we will set up in our big blue gym on Linden Street.”
We are getting into the rhythm of nature here at the market. Our students look forward to our Tuesday market. We celebrate our seasons with the produce brought in by the vendors. If you take a moment and stroll through the Grace Arents Community Garden, you can actually see strawberries, onions, and greens growing. Paolo, our veteran child gardener, from last year pointed out his strawberries, and the mulberry tree laden with berries. I think it seems more abundant than last year. I keep thinking we should probably harvest the berries and make a Byrd House Market Mulberry Jam. Anyone have a good recipe?
Remember the new parking places, you can park on both sides of Idlewood – there are “no parking” signs, but these are reserved for you, our market shoppers. Also along the alley adjacent to the market; and across the street from the market next to the alley along the cemetery –Todd has generously given us permission to park there. The parking lot for WBCH is also available after 5:30.
