Veggie Spy & Versatile Vegan

Strawberry Time!

Strawberry season is early this year – Tilley Farmstead is the first producer out of the gate with strawberries!

Wild strawberries have been eaten in the Western hemisphere and Europe for thousands of years. Strawberries played an important ceremonial role for several North American native tribes such as the Iroquois and the Cherokee.

The Cherokee also saw strawberries as a symbol of love and commitment. And they still are! The modern strawberry we enjoy today came from an accidental cross between a Virginia species and a Chilean species.

The Versatile Vegan suggests you try local strawberries in this Roasted Strawberry Bruschetta appetizer. Another great option is this refreshing Strawberry Salsa. And of course strawberries are perfect in desserts like Strawberry Cobbler and this Vegan Strawberry Shortcake. Yummy!

It’s no secret that local strawberries are amazing, so it’s best to arrive close to the Market opening if you don’t want to miss out. But don’t fret if you’re late – there will be plenty more in the coming weeks! And you can still enjoy strawberry popsicle treats from J Pops and strawberry salsa from Montezuma!

Made From the Market

Welcome to "Made From the Market" featuring recipes, photos, tips and techniques from customers, vendors, staff and volunteers highlighting the use of seasonal market products and the producers who grow and make them.

This Rhubarb Martini from The View from Great Island is a light, refreshing gin cocktail perfect for any spring occasion like Mother’s Day, showers, weddings, or just because it’s the weekend!

Did you know that rhubarb makes exquisite (and delicious) cocktails? This pretty rhubarb martini would be perfect for any spring fling. It’s a twist on the classic martini, made with a fresh rhubarb syrup and a hint of mint.


  • 2 cups chopped rhubarb

  • 1 cup sugar

  • 1 cup water

  • 2 ounces gin

  • 1 ounce rhubarb syrup, 1 ounce = 2 tablespoons

  • 1 ounce fresh lemon juice

  • 1/2 ounce dry vermouth

  • 3-4 mint leaves


  • Combine the chopped rhubarb, granulated sugar, and water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring occasionally.

  • Reduce the heat and boil gently for 10 minutes, or until the rhubarb is completely broken down.

  • Strain the mixture through a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth, pressing the solids to extract as much syrup as possible.

  • Let the syrup cool to room temperature before using. Store any leftover syrup in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.


  • Muddle the mint leaves in a shaker.

  • Fill the shaker with ice. Add the gin, rhubarb syrup, fresh lemon juice, and vermouth to the shaker.Shake vigorously for about 10 seconds.

  • Strain the mixture into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a rhubarb ribbon or a mint leaf, and serve immediately.
