Market Update November 29 2010
Just a brief note this week. I went away for the holiday and am trying to catch up. The cold snap last week will have an effect on the market. The few remaining summer crops (corn and tomatoes) are done for the year. It was fun to see corn in November though. Most winter crops are fine. The snow has ended the wild mushroom season. Savory et Sweet, Meadow Harvest, Rick Steffen Farm, Bigfoot Bread and Olympic Provisions all return this week.
