Market News


We hope you all are enjoying a safe and fun holiday weekend. It sure is hot! So maybe there is some water or a nice shady hammock for you to spend some time in. Our biggest emergency so far has been a nest of baby birds in the inner workings of the tractor. This puts our tiller and front end loader out of commission for awhile! Luckily we saw them before the engine was started!

The summer crops are starting to come in. When these are new, it is sometimes hard to get the quantity we would like to meet everyone’s needs. However, once the plants’ production sets in, it will not be a problem. Not to fear – you will get plenty of opportunity to eat zucchini this summer! And we should have a good amount of most things this week.

When you get to our website, check out our new Recipe section! We are still in the process of transferring over recipes. But you will notice there is a way for customers to upload their own recipes, and to comment on existing recipes. It also cross references ingredients we have available in the Market. It should be a great resource for seasonal cooking!

Lots of other good stuff, too! Earthwind Botanicals has some nice aromatherapy products for summer. Whispering Creek Mushrooms has a bunch available for us this week, and Dozen Bakery has her great selection of sweet goodness.

We truly appreciate your support, and look forward to seeing you on Wednesday!

John and Tallahassee
