People, my People!
This week is a week like no other! This week we open our arms wide and embrace every last drop of spring, letting it fill our every pore and fling our arms wide in celebration!This week we catapult ourselves into summer, soaking in the longer days and the sweet sunshine that beats mercilessly down on this humble town! Food week is in full throes and upon us and our great festival looms ever closer! This week throw off your cardigans and spring caps and twirl in anticipation of the warm summer nights to come! Breathe the subtle changes of the seasons deep into your lungs and regard the world anew! This week, my friends, is so special, and we find ourselves in this place on this planet with nothing left to do but rejoice in every way we know how. So join us for a festival and join us for pickling or mushrooming or eating or whatever your heart desires from the abundance revealed below. Relish the warmth! Linger on the vivid hue of a leaf! This week we inhale the world and breathe it out again to see it changed! Join us!
