Today I visited the Twin Bridges farmers market. It was the second weekend of the season and there was no produce, unless you count the bedding plants for sale. I bought a strawberry plant, along with two cucumber plants and an impressively large basil plant to see how they will do in my community garden space.
Baked goods were well represented, including a booth by the Old Hotel that featured blueberry buckle. Yum. The Old Hotel is run by Bill and Paula Kinoshita, who make sure that seasonal local produce is on the menu.
Twin Bridges is located in the awe-inspiring Ruby Valley. If you visit this market, I highly recommend starting from I-90 and traveling south along Highway 55, which turns into Highway 41. May is indeed the best month to enjoy the scenery, because everything is green and there is still a touch of snow on the mountains.
