Let’s talk about what’s fresh this week. Lettuces rule! But also find arugula, beets, Brussels sprouts, carrots, chard, cilantro, collards, dandelion greens, green onions, herbs, kale, kohlrabi, leeks, mint, mushrooms, mustard greens, pea tendrils, radishes, salad mixes, spinach, sprouts, strawberries, sweet potatoes, turnips, wheatgrass and more. Because Keith Copp has built greenhouses, he is bringing some produce, like zucchini, that is typically not available until warmer weather.
Complete your grocery list with meats like pastured beef, pork, and chicken raised on a natural diet. Free range eggs and Gulf seafood add to protein choices.
Look for goat and cows’ milk artisan cheeses, butter, honey, breads, pies, pasta, snacks, chips and salsa, cookies, varied food mixes, whole grains including rices and quinoa, coffee, kale chips, tamales, doggie biscuits, olive oil, vinegar, seasonings, chocolate truffles, lemonade, soaps, candles and lotions.
Plants starts and bedding plants are available, from vegetables to flowers.
Our farmers use various growing methods. To clarify, our website notes their growing methods on each farmer’s description page. Look for Certified Organic, Sustainably Grown, or conventional growing methods noted at the end of their descriptions.
We are a local, seasonal farmers market, meaning that our farmers bring only what is ripening in
their fields this week and some produce has a short growing season.
Eating with the seasons takes education, awareness and patience!
