(tasty little dish)
A half-dozen locavore providers will take their wares to the new farmers market at the Botanical Garden this Thursday. On the tables, according to Robert Maggiani, Go Texanís San Antonio Coordinator for Regional Marketing Programs, will be squash, tomatoes, carrots, beets, okra, lettuce, and as always, Texas honey. Itís still too early for cucumbers and cantaloupes, though, he adds.
Even if that weekly marketís timing and location arenít quite central enough for you (8am-1pm, 555 Funston), drive the few extra miles knowing that youíre supporting a coming boom. Later this year, ďone is fixiní to come up Friday mornings at Main Plaza,Ē says Maggiani, followed by another at the Pearl Brewery on Saturdays (where Texas Farm to Tableís Brian Montgomery worked to nurture one to life last year).
Another reason to celebrate the Spurs (almost surprise) return to the Western Conference Finals: A-B ran into longtime (and much missed) Liberty Bar server Rudy at Central Market last week, who claims to be serving great burgers and the coldest beer in the state in the Willow Springs Golf Course parking lot across from the AT&T Center. Check the word-of-mouth at games three and four, May 25 and 27. Ticket info at spurs.com.
