Market Update

Market News December 15 2009 Market

The cold weather finally let up. As I explained last week, most vegetables need to have a core temperature above freezing to be harvested so produce availability will be limited. A few farmers have greenhouses and cold frames and should be able to harvest. Greens will have limited availability. Root vegetables such as beets, parsnips, carrots, radishes and turnips should be fine. Winter squashes should be available as well. Apples, pears, chestnuts and hazelnuts should be available too.

Here’s the expected availability list:

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

Packer Orchards – pear juice sweetened baked goods, pears, apples.

Greenville Farms – winter squash, potatoes,hazelnuts, eggs and jams. Sid and Louann also have wreaths.
