This month at the March Market…
Happy Spring! Well, it feels like it in the greenhouse anyway. And a new season begins…
It looks like some of this snow should disappear this week, making access to the root cellar a bit easier, so I’ll have a little more to bring to this market than last time. I’ll have lots of crisp, delicious carrots, several varieties of potatoes, some turnips and leeks, and lots of eggs. Also, a fresh batch of market money cards, a stack of CSA applications, and the usual charming banter that you don’t get at the local grocery…. As always, thanks for your support, and don’t take food from strangers!
So nice to see a little bit of this snow melting! Maybe spring will indeed be coming! We’ve dug into the greenhouse, and have started onions, beets and greens! We are taking names of folks that are interested in our farm boxes. Stop by our table and we’ll tell you all about it. Thanks to all that came out in the cold and snow to visit us at the last market. Looking forward to seeing you again.
Meet me at the Market!
Bring on the spring!
We’re pretty busy with our baby girl Matilda, born 2/22, these days, but will be picking, packing vegetables and sending our friend Kate to Plymouth. We’ll have a limited amount of fresh spring mix, spinach and bok choi as well as a range of storage crops including carrots, beets, watermelon radish, celeriac, potatoes, shallots and parsnips. Plenty of snow here, but it’s springtime in the high tunnel!

Baker & Cook Notes…
Stop by for your Hot or Frozen Meal-to-go! This week in celebration of the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day we are making a Low-Carb Colcannon, replacing the potato with celerey root and cauliflower puree. We are also featuring our File (Sassafras) Gumbo with crabmeat, shrimp and Andouille sausage. We are introducing a new sweet empanada filled with guava and cream cheese. For those hungry for some brisket we are featuring Burnt Ends Empandas in our homemade Kansas City Style BBQ. We will also serve our popular Puerto Rican Chickpea Stew, Tuscan 4 Bean Stew with Cous Cous and Chorizo and more! While all of these are hot, many more options are frozen and ready to take home. Check out our March PFM Menu!
