Celebrate berries at farmers market

It’s a Berry Bash this Tuesday, April 27, at the Emory Farmers Market, featuring Miles Berry Farm from Baxley, Ga. 

Emory chefs will be selling strawberry shortcake at the market, held on the Cox Hall Bridge from noon to 5 p.m., and the Miles brothers will be selling flats of strawberries, blueberries and blueberry bushes. 

This will be the next to the last market before the summer break; the last day before the break will be Tuesday, May 4.

Julie Shaffer, sustainable food education coordinator, says even without the market in the summer, her office has several monthly special events. These kick off on Tuesday, May 18, with “Grow Your Own,” featuring Farmer D Organics with gardening and composting demos, vegetable plants, organic compost, mushroom logs and  garden tools for sale.

Other events will feature ice cream, foods for grilling and tomatoes.
