What’s Fresh June 27

Fresh blueberries rule! Besides the berries (both Certified Organic and conventionally grown), vendors are capitalizing on availability so shoppers can find Blueberry Sage Limeade, Blueberry-Peach Granola, and freeze-dried organic blueberries. In their prime are other soft fruits like peaches, blackberries, Santa Rosa plums, strawberries and apricots. Melons are mostly still in the fields.

Summer vegetables are in full swing, though lingering spring produce looks good, too.

Herb, vegetable, and colorful summer bedding plants plus sunflower bouquets are also available.

Look for pastured beef, pork, and chicken raised on a natural diet. Several vendors bring eggs from free range chickens. Captain George brings his Gulf seafood.

Music at the Market this week showcases members of the award winning Coppell High School Band and Color Guard who are entertaining and fundraising for their trip to London next March.

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!
