Market Update

July 5 2011 Market Update

I hope everyone had a nice July 4th holiday. Slowly but surely we are getting back to our normal harvest schedule. Packer Orchards should have cherries this Tuesday (hoorah!), Unger Farms will have strawberries and possibly raspberries, Greenville Farms will have strawberries and some rhubarb. Little Gnome Farm is probably another week away from attending the market. This week’s weather forecast, if correct, will speed things up for Paul.

Here is Tuesday’s vendor rundown:

Greenville Farms – rhubarb, strawberries (Hood, Shuksan), prunes (fresh and dried), hazelnuts, eggs, and jams, chocolate hazelnut cookies.

Nature’s Wild Harvest – fresh mushrooms (shiitake, maitake, oyster), porcini (maybe), morels, dried mushrooms, mushroom salt, honey, huckleberry jam.
