Market Update

Market Update November 16 2010

Star Anise Kitchen starts attending the market this week. Star Anise offers a variety of South Asian influenced dishes. Peter Fung always has a vegan/vegetarian option and often has a gluten-free option as well. He dropped off samples a few weeks back and they disappeared in no time. Star Anise, like Savory et Sweet, has a market-based seasonal menu which changes every week.

Greenville Farms Pumpkin JuiceI can’t believe I am making this statement in mid-November but there might still be corn available tomorrow. Several farms had corn at the weekend markets, including Greenville Farm. It looked good and tasted good. Greenville is going out again today to harvest. With luck, Sid and Louann will have corn tomorrow. They will have peppers, winter squash, pinto beans (adzuki should be ready soon), prunes, eggs and hazelnuts too. Greenville also has a new product – pumpkin juice. Harry Potter jokes aside, it’s pretty good.

Rick Steffen Farm will be bringing a rainbow of peppers, sweet potatoes, onions, potatoes, green beans, spinach, chard and other vegetables. They will also have pepper bouquets and harvest wreaths. Nature’s Choice will have maitake, shiitake, and chanterelle mushrooms. With luck, there may be other wild mushrooms as well. Bill will also have a good selection of dried mushrooms and honey too. With luck there may be some rose hips, wild watercress and wild chestnuts too.

CSAs at Lloyd Farmers Market

Several shoppers inquired about CSAs at the market. Two farms, Greenville Farms and RedTree Farm, are running CSAs this year. The program at Greenville Farms is unique. A U-Pick CSA, the member will have the opportunity to preserve freeze and preserve right on the farm (see link). RedTree Farm runs a more traditional CSA with box drops in the city.

There isn’t a CSA program with a pickup at the market right now. I really want to hear from you, our shoppers and supporters. Are you interested in a CSA pickup? Summer only or summer and winter? Please share your thoughts.

Thank you for your input and support.

Have a good weekend,
