Prairie Fruits Farm brings its cheeses to farmers market

Prairie Fruits makes some pretty fabulous cheese- Julianne Glatz of the Illinois Times gives us a tour.

I start anticipating them each year as winter melts into spring: Springfield’s farmers markets. It’s not just because of the local produce and products I can buy, although that’s a big part of it. It’s also about getting reacquainted with longtime vendors. And it always gladdens my heart to see new farmers and vendors who’ve decided to invest the considerable time, planning and lots of extremely hard work that it takes to become part of our local food system.

This year my anticipation of Springfield’s farmers markets has been in especially high gear. On May 26 there’ll be a new vendor to the Old State Capitol Farmers Market, one I’ve wished would come to Springfield for years: Prairie Fruits Farm in Urbana.

I'm trying to keep a log of all the things we cook which taste really lovely. You know what it's like: you tweak and tweak a recipe until it's barely recognisable and then wonder how you used to make it. And it will also save a lot of time and bits of paper when it comes to sharing those recipes with friends.
