This Week at the Market

I believe Spokane has joined the rest of the country in a heat wave. Temperatures in the 90's are expected all week. Heat loving plants like tomatoes, peppers, and eggplant rejoice!

It is hard to keep lettuce and greens looking good and not wilting at the farmers market. We are careful to harvest our lettuce very early in the morning. The roots will still be attached to allow us to keep the plant cool in cold water. We will also offer produce for sale directly from our farm. Contact us to find a time to come and select your veggies!

Our Baby Lettuce Mesclun Mix comes bagged and is ready for the salad bowl and includes many types of lettuce and other greens. Currently we use red lettuce, green lettuce, spinach, chard, and beet leaves. We don't include any spicy greens in our lettuce mix. The spicy greens are found in our Asian Greens Mix.

Available this week:

Red Early Potatoes
Adirondack Blue Potatoes (All Blue)
Baby Lettuce Mesclun Mix
Sugar Snap Peas
Swiss Chard
Golden Beets
Pink Baby Beets

There is still time to reserve your all natural chicken too. These chickens are guaranteed to have no antibiotics or hormones and are fed a local blend of dry peas, wheat, and barley without any feed additives.
