Market Update

Market News – December 1 2009 Market

I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving. The weather last Tuesday was pretty good and it looks like we are in for another nice Tuesday.

In vendor news, K’s Everlasting is finished for the year. Kristine expects to be back next fall. Little Pots and Pans is back this week but will be out for the rest of the month. They have a large Christmas/New Year’s order to fulfill and simply can’t complete the order and come to the market. Not to worry; they will be back.

You should find spinach, kale, chard, tatsoi, mustard greens, lettuce and other greens, celery, beets, cabbage, winter squash, carrots, radishes and turnips. Apples, pears, chestnuts and hazelnuts will be available as well. You should find chanterelle and perhaps cauliflower mushrooms as well as cultivated shiitake and maitake mushrooms. Bill also has mushroom blocks for sale if you want to grow your own shiitake or oyster mushrooms. Stop by his stall and take a look.

Here’s the expected availability list:

Rick Steffen Farm – spinach, onions, shallots, peppers, brussels sprouts, potatoes, carrots, celery, chard, beets, peppers, radishes and turnips. Rick also has ornamental pepper bouquets, cabbage roses and harvest wreaths.
