Market Update

Market News February 16 2010 Market

As I’ve stated in earlier posts, Lloyd Farmers Market is helping out with the 2010 Governor’s State Employees Food Drive (link). The market is working with employees in the Oregon WIC program in the campaign. They will have a table where the employees will be selling a few items and accepting donations of cash and food. The market will be making a donation that day and will donate a basket of market goodies (including market gift certificates) with the proceeds going to the campaign. I hope you can help out in any way you can.

What’s available this week? Spinach, kale, collards and arugula will be the predominant greens this week. Swiss chard and salad mixes should be available in small quantities. As the days get longer and the temperatures slowly rise, more greens will come in. Other vegetables include carrots, beets, kohlrabi, turnips, radishes, potatoes, onions and winter squash. You will also find a nice selection of apples, pears and asian pears plus hazelnuts and chestnuts. Spring wild greens like nettles and miner’s lettuce should start coming in anytime in the next few weeks as well.
