For all those gardeners who like to get a head start: we will have our fist tomato seedlings for sale this week!

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 May 2nd, 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)

Seedlings

  • Kale
  • Broccoli
  • *new* Tomatoes (Bush: Oregon Spring, Gold Nugget; & Vine: Sungold, Italian Paste Roma)
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!  

Get Involved

Workbees:

  • Wed. April 29th, 4:30-6:00pm
