We get a lot of questions on "when's the best time to shop the market?". Our market is open 24/7 for your convenience! However, we get fresh weekly inventory from our smaller producers on Friday mornings. Therefore, Fridays starting at 12pm is the "most fresh" the market will be. With weekly egg limits and our smaller scale producers we recommend shopping sooner and not waiting until deadline time close to 4pm on Mondays, as things do go out of stock until the next order cycle. Hope this helps! Of course reach out if you have any further questions.

Chicken Soup with Farina Dumplings adapted from Simply So Good
*local option available
Ingredients Chicken Soup:
1 tablespoon oil*
2 carrots large, chopped*
2 celery ribs chopped
1 onion chopped*
4 quarts Chicken Stock
2 cups cooked chicken*
1 tablespoon rosemary fresh, chopped*
2 tablespoons parsley fresh, chopped*
1 tablespoon thyme fresh, or 1 tsp dried*
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup Cream of Wheat*
2 tablespoons butter
2 eggs lightly beaten*
1 tablespoon fresh parsley chopped*
Instructions Chicken Soup
In a large pot drizzle about 1 tablespoon oil and sauté the carrots, celery, and onions until soft and the onions are translucent. Add chicken stock and simmer over medium-low heat for about 30 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Salt and Pepper to taste. Add the dumplings from the recipe below. Drop dumplings with a tablespoon into simmering soup. Add chicken. Cover and gently simmer over low heat for 10-12 minutes or until dumplings are cooked. Add the rosemary, parsley, thyme, and chicken. Stir gently. Do not over stir or the chicken and dumplings will begin to fall apart.
Combine milk and salt in a saucepan. Bring it to a simmer. Slowly sprinkle in Cream of Wheat or Farina, stirring constantly. Cook for 2-3 minutes. This mixture will become very thick. Remove from heat and stir in butter and eggs until the mixture is smooth. Stir in parsley.
Drop by tablespoons into simmering soup. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
