Winter Recipe Cards

We’re very passionate about food here at the Market. We’ve put together 14 delicious recipes cards that utilize the fresh ingredients that can be found at various merchants throughout the Market. The cards include the ingredient lists, which stores the products can be found in, as well as the recipes on the back of the card. We’ll be changing these recipes seasonally to reflect and highlight some of the best of what the Market has to offer at specific times of year.  The cards can be found, for free, in our recipe rack- located in Center Court, next to Philbert the Pig. Below are a few of the great recipes that are currently available.

Happy cooking!
