It's strawberry season!! There's seriously nothing better than fresh, local strawberries. They taste so much sweeter, more flavorful than the ones NOT grown locally.

Did you know? All our vendors grow and farm within 50 miles radius of Rochester, MN?

This recipe is super special, it's from the ROCHESTERFEST cookbook. While we're flipping through it, we came across a name that we're VERY familiar with- Omar! Omar's kitchen/cafe has been with the market for over a decade. Most people know them for their amazing baked goods selection so we had to try this recipe and share it with you.
