Several vendors will have strawberries this weekend and there will be an even wider selection of fresh produce.

So much is going on at the Market this Saturday.  The Juneteenth folks will be there to talk about the celebration that will take place June 10 and June 11, in commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States.  The “Versatilities” jazz band will be at the Market with cool jazz.  And between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. the BMW Motorcycle show will be in the parking lot to the East.

Spicy Quick Pickled Radishes (from Cookie and Kate)

  • Prep Time:10 mins, Cook Time: 2 mins, Total Time: 12 minutes, Yield: about 1 ¼ cups


  • 1 bunch radishes
  • ¾ cup white wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar
  • ¾ cup water
  • 3 tablespoons honey or maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes (this yields very spicy pickles, so use ½ teaspoon for medium spicy pickles or none at all)
  • ½ teaspoon whole mustard seeds (optional)
  • Optional add-ins: garlic cloves, black peppercorns, fennel seeds, coriander seeds


  1. To prepare the radishes: Slice off the tops and bottoms of the radishes, then use a sharp chef’s knife or mandoline to slice the radishes into very thin rounds. Pack the rounds into a pint-sized canning jar. Top the rounds with red pepper flakes and mustard seeds.
  2. To prepare the brine: In a small saucepan, combine the vinegar, water, honey or maple syrup and salt. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring occasionally, then pour the mixture over the radishes.
  3. Let the mixture cool to room temperature. You can serve the pickles immediately or cover and refrigerate for later consumption. The pickles will keep well in the refrigerator for several weeks, although they are in their freshest and crisp state for about 5 days after pickling.
