Are you grilling out this weekend? You will find Sentelle’s smoked sausages, Shiny C’s steaks, Kany & JEM’s chicken, or Clover Creek’s lamb Italian sausage and racks superb on the grill.

River Island Taters will have sweet potatoes and those wonderful fingerlings and blues. Salamander Springs Gardens returning this week with shiitake mushrooms, garlic, sweet corn and cukes.

Have you tried Buffalo Trail’s apples? Or Ziegenwald’s goat cheese? The best!
