Rosemeade gets it right

When a reader alerted me to a new farmers-style market at Rosemeade
Market and Greenhouse, I was dubious, although the concept of
pairing a nursery and fresh produce isn't so far fetched. I had
occasion to visit recently, and if you live in the area
(Marsh-George Bush) but can't get to a regular farmers market,
Rosemeade makes a good stop.
The overwhelming majority of the space is devoted to produce, and
the owners make several treks weekly to the Dallas Farmers Market to
bring in regional fruits and vegetables. We're cycling out of the
season, but there were still East Texas sweet potatoes, okra,
shelled peas - and Tennessee tomatoes, which J.T. Lemley is bringing
in to the Dallas market until his fall crop matures. Rosemeade also
carries other local products.
I was there to interview Florine Bowman, who makes American
pastries, such as sweet rolls and scones, with a French touch. These
are just like homemade.
