Sheridan farmers market

Sheridan is located on Montana Highway 287 about 20 miles north of Nevada City and Virginia City. Sheridan is a small town, population 600, but this spunky market has a lot to offer.

This was the first day of the market's second season, and already there were beautiful salad greens ready to take home, plus a mouthwatering selection of baked goods.

I think the most promising of all are the cupcakes, which cost a mere dollar. I can testify that you get a lot of eating pleasure for your money.

Pictured here are the chocolate cupcakes, with a deep, rich flavor and studded with small pieces of real bacon. This is my first time tasting the popular chocolate-bacon combination, and I must say it works!

This time of year you can also find plant starts.

There are some crafts, such as children's toys and handmade knives. Later in the season there will be more produce, jams and jellies, cheese, lamb, and beef. A lot to look forward to!

Nearby Virginia City is celebrating its 150th anniversary in 2013, and there are a lot of activities to enjoy. Check out the Virginia City website for more details. If you are interested in Wild West history, this is the place to be this year.

Be sure to set aside a Thursday afternoon in your holiday schedule to visit the Sheridan farmers market.
