Columbia City Farmers Market

This Wednesday we've got live music from Clallam County.

There'll be tons of tasty spring veggies: asparagus, carrots, lettuces, radish, celery, snap peas, sunchokes, baby turnips and beets, cabbage, cauliflower, all kind of greens and flowering greens. And rhubarb — delicious in pies, or just make sauce the same way you make apple sauce (peel, chop, boil, add sweetner) — rhubarb sauce is absolutely delicious alone or with vanilla yogurt or ice cream.

Also look for plenty of fresh herbs and garlic chives (you can make a fantastic omelet with chopped, sauteed garlic chives, fresh herbs and some grated cheese — almost any of the goat or cow's milk cheeses at the market is delicious melted). Special treats at the market: Rockridge Orchard's berry and apple granita, chocolate truffles from Trevani, and yummy pastries from our local bakers.

Homework Help will also be available this week from 5-7 pm, Monday through Thursday.

Make sure to stop by this week and leave a goodbye message for Nancy Pew, our children's librarian who is moving to a new job. We have a special book available at the library for anyone to sign, and we'll be giving her this book at the end of this week.

Join the CCity Runners

Columbia City's uber friendly and uber chill running club

It's almost summer (we hope) and we're willing to bet you have a health fitness goal or three. Sticking to a plan is always easier with company — and even better when that company is the Columbia City Runner's Club.

Want to tighten in a few places for that new swimsuit? Thinking about trying running as a way to stay in shape? Just want to get OUTSIDE? We won't question your motivations — we'll just make sure you're having fun along the way. Check out our weekly running schedule at www.ccityrunners.com.
