On-Farm Market 2023 Week 4, Snow Peas and Beets
Thanks everyone for coming out to the Chocolates and Tomatoes Farm Saturday (9am-1pm) market these past few weeks. It has been great to see new folks discovering us each week and many returning.
New Veggies from Chocolates and Tomatoes Farm
Making a grand entrance at the Market on June 3 are
Snow peas -- green and purple (pictured)
Beets are expected to arrive (I had never eaten a beet before I met Mark; it turns out I love these farm fresh gems. You can eat the whole thing -- leaves, stem, and roots; sign up for class on July 7 to learn more).
Red cabbage is joining the green
Cucumbers (seedless) and snack-sized
Broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, green onions, radishes
Various kales and chard
Lots of lettuces
Spinach, swiss chard
Zuchinni and yellow summer squash (which made a sneak visit last week)
As Usual, we will have an assortment of other treats too
If you have made it to the market early, then you have been one of the lucky ones to get Chef Mark's house-made sourdough bread. Each week Mark has baked more loaves, and each week we have sold out before 11am.
We will continue to have Chef Missy's fancy decorated shortbread cookies and other surprise treats she brings.
Strawberries are still in season and remain a market favorite
Our local honey will be there each week -- our local bees make honey from the mix of farm plants around them
