Market Update

Market News – 24 November 2009 Market

There is a nice produce selection for Thanksgiving week at the market. You should find spinach, kale, chard and other greens, celery, beets, cabbage, winter squash, carrots, radishes and turnips. Apples, asian pears, pears, chestnuts and hazelnuts will be available as well. Falling temperatures in the mountains are starting to limit the wild mushroom supply. Still, you should have matsutakes and chanterelles (yellow and white) as well as cultivated shiitake and maitake mushrooms.  You may find a few cauliflower mushrooms too. Bill also has mushroom blocks for sale if you want to grow your own shiitake or oyster mushrooms. Stop by his table and take a look.
