About Dogpatch Urban GardensLine at Farmers' Market

You never know what kind of hummus or chia pudding you might find from owners Eric and Jenny. The flavor depends on what’s in season — sweet potato hummus and cinnamon and apple chia pudding were available in June. They also sell fresh produce, salad dressing (the Lemon Garlic Vinaigrette is Eric’s favorite) and a salad enhancer. Make sure to tell them hello when you head to the Market Saturday, open from 7 a.m. until Noon!
