Come on down to Loutet Farm to join us for the first official market of the season! Meet some of the new folks who will be helping to grow fabulous organic veggies at our Farms this season.

We will be running regular markets every Saturday from here on out, so we're right back into the swing of things. Wednesday Markets (4pm-6pm) will begin on May 13, and run weekly from then on.

This week we will have both early season organic veg for your dinner table, as well as plenty of early season seedlings to help you get a start on your garden

Here's what's fresh this week:

Fresh Sheet

Saturday April 25th, 10am-12pm

  • Brassica Bags (kale buds, purple sprouting broccoli, and overwintered kale leaves - amazing for salads, stir frys, smoothies)
  • Salad Mix
  • Arugula
  • Radishes
  • Salad turnips
  • Green garlic (earliest garlic of the season, pulled before it flowers or bulbs - like a garlic flavored leek)


  • Kale
  • Broccoli
  • lettuce
  • cabbage
Please note: we do our best to project what we can harvest, but we can't guarantee that everything will be available, or available at both Wed. and Sat. markets.  As we have limited quantities of some items, arrive early for the best selection!
