Weekly Market Notes for March 10, 2011

Hello Market Friends:

We are teetering on the brink. It's the last official week of rink season, snowing as I write this or maybe raining, but whenever the sun comes out these days you can tell it's winning. Our farmers and vendors are doing an admirable job of keeping the market well-supplied right on through it all. Here's the news:

Sosnickis' notes:

Despite the cooler spring this year, the seedlings continue to emerge in the greenhouses! Ben's been roto-tilling and the dirt smells awesome! Ben will be bringing the usual storage crops (cabbage, beets) and coolers of our Perogies & Sauerkraut and Green Beans. Ben will be there this week and next BUT then he has decided to stay on farm for the rest of March and all of April to concentrate on our very busy task of growing, growing, growing!! Please stock up, as Ben won't be back until early May. We really appreciate the support of our regular customers and look forward to many more come spring! We'll be sure to keep contributions and photos coming in for the newsletter to keep you all updated on progress at the farm! Cheers, Jessie & Ben

Greenfields will be absent this week and next.

Ted Thorpe will have a full selection of veggies, including lots of greens, in the garage. And speaking of greens, lots of Kind Organics' sunflower sprouts, pea shoots, microgreens and sprout mixes are available now at the market, and Sandra and Tamas report that they'll have additional extra-early greenhouse greens soon.

Growing Spaces will be bringing two family favorites to the market this week- Vegetarian Molasses Baked Beans and Bean Hummus. Packed with this year's harvest, the baked beans include our organic non-GMO dried soybeans, basil, maple syrup, tomatoes, apple cider vinegar and onions all coming from the farm. Try these beans with eggs and toast, and you'll forget all about the rainy weather outside. Blythe will be sampling the bean hummus with our organic carrots, so be sure to stop by and have a taste!

Bruno of Fun Guy Farms returns this week with mushrooms, miso and more.

Cheese, chocolate, good bread, and lots of other foods to make you feel good will be there too.

See you at the market!
