The Veggie Family, Together Again
As I strolled the market last Saturday, I felt like I was at a family reunion. “Kohlrabi...long time no see!” “Where have you been, broccoli rabe?” “It was a crazy year, peaches, but I’m glad to see you again!”
It’s an exciting time at the market: The local harvest season is heating up! Each Saturday the farmers are debuting new offerings. Thanks to supportive weather, the list of available fruits and veggies is hearty for the middle of July.
Three produce farms will anchor the market this Saturday. If you’re looking for greens, pay a visit to the Vaisuo crew. They’ll have five varieties of lettuce alongside bundles of arugula, kale, and spinach. Stop by River Crest Farm’s tent if you’re craving some unique offerings. Fresh garlic, kohlrabi, and beets are just the beginning. Lars at Clover Nook Farm will debut peaches. His broccoli, cauliflower, and corn have all been very popular so far this summer. In total we expect at least 25 varieties of fruits and veggies – checkout the list below.
As delicious as this Saturday will be, in a way we’re just getting started. Our produce tables will only grow larger and more diverse over the next several weeks. If you don’t see a favorite of yours, just ask the farmers about it. They’ll let you know when you’ll be able to get reunited again!
