Fresh from Durham Farmers' Market

This week Durham Farmers' Market Chef in the Market will be Chef Dave Alworth from Guglhupf. Dave will demonstrate how to make Kohlrabi Latkas with Chapel Hill Creamery's Quark. The demo starts at 10AM on the Central lawn under the blue tent. Quantities will be limited; recipes will be available.

A quick note about honey....
When the Tulip Poplars start to bloom that means that it is almost time to start harvesting honey.  Well, the Tulip Poplars have bloomed so, it won't be long until to 2011 honey crop will be available at the Market.  David Fruchtenicht, of Fruchtenicht Honey, has taken the month of May off to harvest honey and he'll be back at Market in early June.  This week, if you are looking for honey, check out Little Tree Farm's booth, they will have the last of their 2010 "vintage" honey.
