Clark Park Spring

Asparagus, rhubarb and seedlings for the garden highlighted the spring offerings at Clark Park Farmers’ Market today.

New to the market was Young’s Garden, a regular at Headhouse Square and former denizen of the Reading Terminal Market. Now’s the time to start the culinary herb seedlings you can obtain from the Youngs. They’ll also be selling potted plants, flowering plants and various ornamentals throughout the season. Young’s Garden replaced another vendor of potted plants who retired.

All but a single bunch of asparagus had been sold by 11:30 a.m., the last remnant siitting alone in a cooler at Margerum’s. Plenty of nice looking hothouse lettuces at other stands as well as the normal assortment of root vegetables.

Another new addition, Honest Tom’s Tacos. The vendor, operating from a truck on the Chester Avenue side of Clark Park, was selling breakfast tacos made with ingredients obtained from market producers.
