Welcome to the Lunenburg Farmers' Market

"As soon as you walk through the front door of the Market, the smell of omelettes cooking quickly finds its way to your nose followed by the eye-opening aroma of freshly brewed local coffee. Your taste buds begin to tingle with the thought of tasting this home cooking made with love. Your eyes open wide at the sight of so many vibrant colours of the fresh produce, baked goods, artisans crafts, jams, jellies and more.

Your attention turns to the welcoming sound of chatter, laughter and mingling of happy customers enjoying the relaxed and friendly atmosphere. There are many vendors offering not only their goods and food items but a welcoming hello and friendly conversation. There are people of all ages and diverse backgrounds, all sharing the same experience. What a truly delightful place!" ~ Louise D, Market Visitor

ASPARAGUS RISOTTO by Elisabeth Bailey

Ingredients

1 pound asparagus, trimmed and chopped into bite-sized pieces
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
1/4 cup water
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons butter, divided
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 cup Arborio rice or similar
1/2 cup white wine (any kind)
4 cups chicken broth
Zest of one lemon

* Heat 2 tablespoons of butter over medium heat in a large saucepan. Add onions and cook until soft, stirring, about 8 minutes. Add rice and continue to cook, stirring, for another 4 minutes.
