There was music Wednesday from Bill LaReau; spring produce items like lettuces, spinach, leeks, garlic scapes and peas; breads, cheeses, meats, eggs and tamales; as well as an information booth where you can pay with a debit card and use SNAP/EBT.

And in other food news: I heard from several folks about a new local source for buying whole, bone-in chickens. Whitney's Fresh Birds, out of Calhan, is selling three- to four-pound birds for $13, with pickup available at the farm on weekends and in Colorado Springs on Tuesdays. According a Facebook note, the birds aren't fed antibiotics or hormones and are pastured on organic pasture with mobile pens. E-mail for more.
