The Market

  • Beets (bunch)

    $3.00 / bunch

    Bunches of beets, with fresh greens.  We grow a few different varieties. Chioggia are striped inside, Touchstone are golden, and Dertroir Dark are deep purple.  We’ll pick what looks best. The greens are great sauteed with butter, white wine, and garlic – just as you would cook swiss chard.

  • A crowd favorite, our bunches of mixed-color carrots are made with all heirloom varieties.  Each variety has a subtly different flavor.  Great for grilling and roasting.  Grate raw to add some color into any salad or slaw.

  • Celery

    $2.50 / each

    Most farms have a hard time growing good-quality celery, given that it prefers to grow in “organic muck.” Well, we’ve got that, in spades, and our celery is the proof. Loads of flavor, though not as great for snacking this year due to the lack of rain. All Potter Hill potato salad? Yes please!

  • Cucumbers

    $2.50 / lb

    Larger standard green cucumbers from the tunnel mixed with the heirloom blonde cucumbers. First come first serve on the choice!

  • Eggplant

    $3.50 / lb

    Almost too pretty to eat!

  • Eggs (1 dozen)

    $6.00 / each In stock

    Best eggs around – pastured and organically fed, you’ll taste the difference. Happy healthy chickens make happy healthy eggs!

  • Herbs, basil

    $2.50 / bunch In stock

    Yes, basil basil back in stock in limited amounts to start. Fresh basil, nothing better.  These will keep for a week+ in a jar of water on the counter.

  • Herbs, dill

    $2.50 / bunch

    Fresh, fragrant dill.  Pick some up to make quick pickles with our heirloom cucumbers.

  • Herbs, parsley

    $2.50 / bunch

    Nice flat-leaved Italian parsley.  No curly parsley here, thank you very much.  Parsley loves our heavy soil, and has a wonderful sweetness when picked fresh.

    In the words of the immortal Angelo Pellegrini – “There is nothing that wouldn’t be improved by the addition of a little fresh minced parsley.”

  • Great in curries, soups, and stir fries or pair with fish. Or make yourself a nice drink with it! A lovely smell and the taste is just as nice.

  • Herbs, savory

    $2.50 / bunch In stock

    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

    $3.00 / bunch In stock

    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.

  • Early heirloom leeks, tall and slender. Try these on the grill with a nice steak. Chop up the tops like scallions and roast with potatoes.

  • All heirloom varieties, we’ll harvest what looks best that day.

  • Instant salad – a combination of lettuces that look best each week. Potential candidates are summer crisps, romaines, and leafy lettuces. Comes in 1/3 pound bags.

  • A real late summer treat, fresh sweet onions.  We grow the Australian heirloom Ailsa Craig, which are sweet and mild like a Vidalia while having a richer flavor.

    Cut a nice thick slab and stick it on your burger.  And cut one for your sweetheart, too, while your at it.

  • Scallions

    $2.50 / bunch

    Delicious heirloom scallions, different varieties throughout the year.

  • Squash and zucchini

    $2.50 / lb In stock

    We have a mix of  different heirloom summer squashes, including zucchini (i.e. green summer squash).  The flavor of these heirloom squashes is far superior to other modern varieties you’ll find at the grocery store of farmers markets.

    Even if you don’t get too excited about squash and zucchini, try these halved or quartered, tossed with oil and balsamic, salt and pepper, and grilled.  Salt to taste after grilling and toss again in a bit more fresh oil and vinegar.

    You can pick out squash or zucchini when you come to pick up your order, depending on availability.

  • Tomatoes

    $4.00 / lb

    All heirloom varieties, with names like Black Krim, Cosmonaut Volkov, Rose de Berne, Aunt Ruby’s Green, Orange Banana Plum, Amish Paste, and more.

  • Mixed heirloom varieties, like a little box of jewels.
