Green Heart Menu for Rillito Park Farmers Market Sunday 2/19/23, 8:30 am - 12:30 pm


Dear Green Heart Friends,

I know that the parking is difficult on Sunday morning with horse racing season on!  I had a meeting with Nick, the manager of Heirloom Farmers Markets, and he is not happy at all, and doing all he can.  However, the market has been growing about 15 - 20% a year, and this was to be our biggest "high season" (Jan thru March) yet ---- but that is now spoiled by the parking situation.  He says it used to be easier to share than it is now.  Our parking was close to capacity filled in December and January BEFORE racing started, so we take the lion's share.  He told me that if you come before/by 10 am, it is easier to park.  (There goes sleeping in on Sunday!).  He also told ME to try to come earlier (!!), and for me to set up by 8.  There are actually early-birds LEAVING the market as I pull in; however, they typically are just buying produce. (There goes sleeping in until 4 am for me!). We'll see how I do because:

Leila, who has been a huge help to me the past 2 years, is leaving for a new career in hospitality (a job with benefits!), and she does SO much that it will take time for someone to learn everything.  Therefore, I may run out of time to make something that I have put on the menu (last week it was the scones).  Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.  I would anticipate a smaller menu NEXT week for 2/26.

​Roasted Kabocha Squash Stew, another Forks over Knives recipe, that we will alter a bit.  As the weather is still cold, there's a lot of appeal in these winter vegetables, including fennel bulb.  You'll also see Ted's Split Pea Soup, always hearty and warming.

I have a big wedding cake to set up at La Mariposa tomorrow, that I've worked on for 2 days (tricky cream cheez vegan buttercream on red velvet tiers, and one chocolate raspberry tier).  I'll have a photo next week.  THAT'S why this email and menu are going out later than I'd like :-)

Thank you in advance for your order.  PLEASE try to have your order in by Thursday evening.

Warmly, and in health,

Green Heart Bakery
