Lilies Make Everybody Smile...
Pete has lots of practice in growing lilies for gardens and for cut flowers, and plant breeders have been creating and improving varieties for decades.  We have potted lilies for your garden, and cut lilies to grace your table.  Asiatic hybrids don't have a scent, but they are visually stunning.  Find them close to the front door of the market.

Our wine and cheese manager, Leah Mojer, says to pair bluefish with Masseria Li Veli “Fiano” if you prefer white, and if you prefer red, choose Domaine Antugnac “La Closerie des Lys”.

Hot House Tomatoes!
Remember photosynthesis? It's the mechanism where sunshine (which we have had very little in the last several days) is used by plants of all sorts (but I'm talking about tomatoes here) to produce food for themselves in order to ripen the fruit (and yes, a tomato is really a fruit).

And that's why the tomato availability is kind of limited right now.  They're being picked as they become ripe, so watch for them as you shop in the market.  

As soon as we have a steady supply, the kitchen crew will be making their famous gazpacho and fresh salsa.
