Enjoy the unique offerings of these vendors at this week’s market:
Peter the Bread Man is taking inspiration from the Eastern European counties for his newest artisan bread. Peter tells us, “The Eastern Europeans love a dark, coarse rye bread and I’ve added these flavors to my sourdough bread.” Try a boule of Peter’s new Black Sour Rye and experience the robust flavor. Some of the other artisan breads found at Peter’s market stand include Spinach and Feta, Cranberry Walnut, Parmesan Herb and Russian Egg Bread.
