Meet Robert Lievens, the artist behind Fallen Wood Turnings.  He’s been using fallen wood from urban forests and resourcing wood to create hand crafted pieces for over 8-years now.  You can find unique, hand-turned wooden jewelry, bowls, wind chimes and sun catchers.  Each piece has a story behind it, where the wood was sourced from, what type of wood and how it was found.  Find wood bowls, salad spoons, knives made from varieties of wood found in the back country, brought in by a customer and even sourced from an old pool table!  Stop by and talk with Robert about what he’s creating.

Market Recipe: Preserved Lemons

Vendor Julie Leidel shares her favorite way to preserve fresh produce when it’s at its peak.
It’s Citrus Season!  Preserved Lemons – super easy to make, and gives a big flavor punch.  You can get beautiful lemons from any number of our produce vendors.  Pop on over to Salt Of The Earth for some sea salt and you’re good to go.  I typically put preserved lemons on fish and chicken.  They’re also great chopped up (rind and all) and added to rice or other grains.  If you’re feeling generous, they make a great gift for your friends who love to cook.
