The Market

  • Arugula

    $3.50 / bunch

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

  • Beans, fresh snap (2/3 pound)

    $3.25 Only 3 left in stock

    It’s a bean bonanza – doesn’t get much better than fresh green beans.

  • Beets (bunch)

    $3.50 / bunch Only 1 left in stock

    Smaller young beets with nice greens. Beets will get bigger as we thin them out

  • Cucumbers

    $1.25 / each

    Delicious blond and green cukes. Order by the piece. What a start to cuke season! Fingers crossed it continues for a while.

  • Eggs, dozen

    $7.75 / each

    Best eggs around – pastured and organically fed, you’ll taste the difference. Medium sized eggs getting bigger every day as the ladies mature. Will eventually be $8/dozen at full size.

  • Garlic, fresh

    $3.00 / bunch

    Fresh garlic, nothing better. Delicious and plentiful, eat up! So new I don’t have a picture of it yet, so going with baby Nora instead. So cute!

  • Garlic, Scapes

    $4.00 / bunch

    Eat the whole thing, head to toe. Tastes like…garlic. Stock up, they store well and are abundant, but they only come once a year for a week or two! Roast ’em, grill ’em, pickle ’em, pesto ’em…or just cut them up in your salads.

  • Herbs, basil

    $2.75 / bunch

    Nothing better, I can’t wait for tomato season! These will keep for a week+ in a jar of water on the counter, but they don’t last that long in our house ūüôā

  • We have an overabundance of basil: it’s pesto time! Bunches will be a couple whole large plants.

  • Herbs, cilantro

    $2.75 / bunch Only 3 left 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 garlic scapes would be perfect for a cilantro pesto too!

  • Herbs, parsley

    $2.75 / bunch In stock

    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

    $2.75 / 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.

  • Cinnamon/clove flavor with hints of anise. Great in any stir fry!

  • Kale

    $3.00 / 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.

  • All good things must come to an end – the crazy heat and lack of rain have taken care of our lettuce glut. Thus smaller bags this week, and possibly next as we do a rain dance and wait for the next round to size up.

  • Fresh bunches of Rossa Lunga (red) onions. The greens can be used like scallions but are more robust.

  • Long, blocky frying peppers. Great roasted, grilled or chopped up in a salad. Order by the fruit.

  • Peppers, Jalapenos

    $0.50 / each In stock

    Give your dish a kick with a couple jalapenos

  • Peppers, Shishitos (pint)

    $4.50 / each Only 3 left in stock

    Mostly mild peppers great for blistering on the pan or grill. I say mostly because rumor has it one in ten are spicy!

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

  • New potatoes are freshly dug, not simply small potatoes. So fresh the skins haven’t cured yet, so we don’t pre-wash them as the skins would come right off. These yellow potatoes are always good for roasting, frying, and mashing, but a quick steam really brings out the delicate flavor and texture of a new potato. You’ll actually notice some sweetness to these tots as the sugars haven’t converted to starch, which happens later during the curing (for storage) process.

  • Radishes

    $3.00 / bunch

    Cute little 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.

  • Pork sausage with roasted heirloom pumpkin and smoked chili peppers

    Made with 100% Short Creek Farm pasture-raised non-GMO-fed pork.

  • Sausage, Chorizo Rojo

    ~ $12.00 / package

    Pork sausage with ancho and pasilla chili, tomato, and cilantro

    Made with 100% Short Creek Farm pasture-raised non-GMO-fed pork.

  • Pork sausage with chili, fennel, and red wine

  • Sausage, Maple Breakfast

    ~ $11.00 / package Approx. 1.00 lbs

    Pork sausage with New Hampshire maple syrup and sage

  • We had some scallions overwinter – I watched them flower and patiently waited for the seed to become viable. The variety is called Evergreen Hardy White, and it has certainly lived up to the hardy part – not only did they survive the winter, but they also survived being mowed! 1 tsp of seeds, which is more than you’ll need!

  • Scallions

    $3.00 / bunch

    Delicious heirloom scallions, different varieties throughout the year. The tops of these got hit pretty hard in the freeze, but the rest of the scallion is still delicious!

  • A spicy combination of tokyo bekana, tatsoi, mustard greens and arugula. Plus some salad turnip greens mixed in for fun.

  • Squash and Zucchini

    $2.75 / lb In stock

    Zucchini this week are from Potter Hill. We’ve been using it by the barrel load. Delicious!

  • 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.

  • Tomato Plants (6 pack)

    $4.50 / each Only 1 left in stock

    Paddy Rose and Nora have decided to rescue the thinnings from our seedings to resell. Look great, hardened off, and ready to go in the ground (ideally on an overcast day, or in the late afternoon).

  • Turnips, Salad

    $3.00 / bunch

    Tokyo Market Turnips aka Salad Turnips aka Hakurei Turnips. Call them what you want, these are a light summer delight. Crisp, juicy, delicious – they go great cut up in salad, dipped in hummus, or just plain with a bit of salt. Or roast them, but they don’t need long! Sold by the bunch.
