What’s Fresh – June 7

The produce selection is back in full swing with new varieties weekly.  Spring has truly arrived when the Coppell Farmers Market tables brighten with vibrant colors beyond the greens and root vegetables of winter. Each week farmers bring what they find ready to pick on Friday so there may be some surprises. Some produce is raised organically, others sustainably but not organic, some use conventional practices. Ask the farmer if this is important to your family.  To see what is in season now, please click here for our seasonality chart.

Peaches, strawberries, red and green slicing tomatoes and cherry tomatoes recently appeared for this season. Pinto beans, leeks, and the first peppers are in limited supply this early. Spinach is winding down. Shop early for any of these.

White-fleshed freestone peaches, Texas-raised cherries, blackberries and blueberries will be here anytime so look for them and ask if your family is ready for more vine and tree ripened fruit.

Vegetables include green beans and English peas. Squash varieties are yellow, zucchini, eight ball zucchini, and patty pan. Some lettuces continue and cruciferous vegetables may include cabbage, broccoli, kale, arugula, bok choy, kohlrabi, and Swiss chard.

Also find herbs like cilantro flowers, fennel, dill, lemon mint, oregano, and maybe some garlic scapes. Other greens are tatsoi, sprouts, mizuna, wheat grass, and mixed salad greens plus homemade dressings and spices.

Root vegetables include red potatoes, radishes, carrots, onions, spring onions, garlic, turnips, and beets.

Ranchers bring pastured, grass raised and finished beef and lamb, pastured pork, free range chicken and eggs, goat and cow artisan cheeses, and Texas Gulf seafood. Artisan bakeries bring pies, breads, rolls, and cookies.

Other artisan producers bring a wide spectrum of honey, pasta, granola and other grains, chips, salsa, tamales, lemonade, coffee, chocolate truffles, small batch prepared foods and mixes, relishes, Texas olive oil, dressings, and more.

Doggie biscuits, soaps and lotions from natural ingredients add to the artisan mix. Herb, vegetable, and sun and shade color plants are also for sale.
