The Forrestal Village Farmers Market opens for their second season on June 5, with Jim Weaver, owner of Tre Piani and Tre Bar, grilling Italian burgers with choose-your-own toppings outside the restaurant where the Market is held. The Market runs each Friday, from 11:00am to 2:00pm, through September 25. The list of vendors is here, and please note that Bobolink Dairy & Bakehouse is on that list, a wonderful development for local fans of this unique producer of artisanal cheese and bread. Also make note of the Nourishing Gurus appearance on June 12, I’ll be writing about them for my May 29 Princeton Packet In The Kitchen column.
