Don't miss the Day of the Honeybee activities this Saturday. Lots of fun for the whole family. The North Shore Bee Club will be selling North Shore honey from their table - first of the season!

We are harvesting the first peas of the season this week. Quantities will be fairly low this week, but should increase dramatically as we move into June. Next week we are looking forward to beets and strawberries, and the first garlic scapes are starting to poke out. Yum!

We are happy to report that we are now running two "checkouts" on Saturday morning to help move through the line quicker and we have been able to keep a selection of most of our produce on the table past 11am.
Here's what's fresh this week:
