What’s been going on!

Just a quick note as Alex is headed out of town for nearly two weeks but wanted to let everyone know that Betsy and Jennie will be at market the next two Saturdays and we will all three be at market on the 23rd for all of your Christmas celebration needs.

It will be an interesting next few days getting ready for market as we could have a bit of snow rolling in on Friday after our first real rain in almost 2 months but Saturday looks sunny and cool.  Finally real December weather and we have been pushing hard the last week to take advantage of the unusually warm days.  Now we are ready.

See you all at market or in a few weeks.

Picture of the Week


 Alex will be out walking in the desert, again.

What’s going to be at the market?

 Bear with us during the market Renovations!

 Beautiful fall greens. The Salanova mixed lettuces but perfect for salads and Little Gem. Sweet Collards to go with the Lacinato Kale, tender and full of flavor.  Braising Greens for either a saute or a sharp addition to a salad.  Radicchio and big Escarole in the chicory family.

Fennel makes a return to the mix and a few more Beets are back too!  Sweet and tender Japanese Salad Turnips and the more traditional Purple Top Turnips too.  Red Radishes and sweet Watermelon Radish. Butternut Winter Squash.  Cilantro and Italian Parsley.    Lots or Baby Ginger for deserts and fresh Turmeric too!

As a reminder if there is anything that you would like for us to hold for you at market just let us know by e-mail, by the evening before, and we will be glad to put it aside for you.  Just so you know, sometimes not everything listed will be at the Wednesday market.

Hope to see you all at the market!

Alex, Betsy and Jennie
