Farmer’s Market Saturday

Saturday is possibly the last Farmer’s Market for the season.  For the future, we will continue to pull our truck into town with the CSA Shares for the Saturday Pick Up members.  Instead of the spot by the alley off Pioneer Square, we will move to Western Sage CPA’s parking lot–catty-corner to the park in a corner lot.  You can drive right in and park near the truck!

This week we will have a plethora of hot peppers:  Jalapeno, Habanero, Poblano, Krimzon Lee (a type of paprika that looks like an Anaheim), and Hungarian Hot Wax. 

Green Bell Peppers, wrinkled Pepperoncini (not hot), and the multi-colored light meated Bell Peppers called Islander.  Maybe some Antohi peppers if they survive the frost–we didn’t give them a blanket for tonight.

Broccoli-By-The-Bag @ $1/#

Green beans–Kentucky Blue pole beans–in 5# bags.  I had some of these for dinner–cooked in butter, and lightly steamed!  YUM–

European Picklers–our snack cucumbers that are great as pickles.  These were picked Monday and are most likely the last of the season.  🙁

Red Beets–a small gathering of topped beets in a bag.

Onions–sweet yellows, large sweet whites, and some purples.

Potatoes–5# bags of Purple Vikings, Baby Purple Vikings, Dark Red Norlands, Baby Dark Red Norlands, and some Amarosa Fingerlings (red skin and rosy red flesh).

Green Cabbage–stragglers in the garden that missed the harvest because they just weren’t big enough.  Sweet and peppery in flavor, crisp texture.

Cantaloupe and Watermelons–ABSOLUTELY the last of the season…a short one this year for melons–late spring and average date for the frost in this region.

Fruit for sale this week are 1/2 pint Raspberries ($3) and Thomcord Grapes ($3/#)

See you there!  The Farmer’s Wife

    How many habaneros do you have left? I could probably take all or most of them and some jalapenos too 🙂
