The Market

  • Arugula

    $3.50 / bunch

    Add a peppery spice to a salad. Also, seriously great on sandwiches.

  • Baby Beets (bunch)

    $3.50 / bunch In stock

    Bunches of cute little beets. They should size up as we start picking. They’re a delicacy when small…no need to cut (halve if you must) or peel, just scrub, roast and serve! I left them in for an hour at 400. Candy sweet!

  • Bok choi

    $2.50 / each

    Stir-fry with plenty of garlic and a bit of soy sauce.  So easy, so good.

  • Braising Mix

    $3.50 / bunch

    Mature spicy salad mix. If you like it REALLY spicy, eat it raw. Or give it a quick steam/sautee/etc to take out some of the spice.

  • Herbs, cilantro

    $2.50 / bunch In stock

     

    Fresh cilantro, great in curries and salsa. Our favorite thing to do with cilantro lately is making cilantro pesto to go with tacos and burritos. The tops of the onions would be perfect in pesto too!

  • Herbs, dill

    $2.50 / bunch

    Fresh, fragrant dill. Feta, radish, dill quiche. Try it, seriously. So good!

  • Herbs, savory

    $2.50 / bunch

    Not commonly found in markets, this oregano relative goes great with beans (green or otherwise) and summer squash (grilled or sauteed).  Also, a good match for chicken or pork.

  • Kale

    $3.50 / bunch

    Will beat the pants off any old kale you find at the grocery store.  Bunches may be either green stemmed Vates or red stemmed Red Russian.  We’ll pick whichever looks best.  Both are open-pollinated heirloom varieties.

  • We’ve moved on to some absolutely gorgeous heads of lettuce. Eat up!

  • Instant salad – a combination of lettuces that look best each week. Potential candidates are summer crisps, romaines, and leafy lettuces. No messing around this year, they come in 2/3 pound bags (double previous years). It’s a big bag but it’ll last if you’re not a salad fiend!

  • Onions, fresh bunched

    $3.50 / bunch In stock

    Fresh bunches of yellow and red onions. The greens can be used like scallions but are more robust. They will size up as we start picking.

  • A delicious snack on their own, chopped into salads or cook them ever so lightly. With a mild sweet pea flavor, they’re a real delicacy. Get them while you can!

  • Summer spinach, like a cross between chard and spinach. Not as tender as our spring and fall spinach, but just as tasty.

  • These red and white beauties are good in a salad, for snacking, or on a sandwich.  Or on buttered toast, for breakfast.  As if you were French. Seriously, it’s good.

  • A spicy combination of tokyo bekana, tatsoi, mustard greens and arugula – toddler to teenager sized. Sold in bunches despite the picture!

  • Swiss chard

    $3.50 / bunch

    If you’re not sure about swiss chard – sautee in butter, add minced fresh garlic and white whine, braise until it’s as tender as you like it.  You’ll be a convert.
