Farmers Market Workshop

The Farmers Market is holding a public workshop on Wednesday 11/7 at Franklin Plaza Ballroom from 5-7 pm to discuss its future in Troy. We want your opinion!

The workshop will be led by Project for Public Spaces, a world renowned consultant for markets and public spaces around the globe. They will show examples of other markets and hold discussions on what we are, what Troy needs, and what we should become.

Please come and bring your friends!

Cuban Pulled Pork Sandwich

In no particular order, thanks to Mayor Patrick Madden, Deputy Mayor Monica Kurzejeski, planning director Steve Strichman, National Park Service Consultant Karl Beard, visionary Joe Fama, plus Barb Nelson, Lindsay Zefting, Andrew Lynn and oh so many others.

Sunday Benedicts

Seems like every Sunday lately we’ve been having Huevos Benedictus. Maybe that’s because they are so darned good!

Apple smoked Canadian bacon on a whole wheat English muffin, a pair of organic American hen-scratch eggs, and that smooth, creamy Hollandaise sauce— these eggs are a real international effort, and let me tell you, diplomacy pays off, they cooperate like nobody’s business!

Happy Onion Day!
