Broccoli and Beets and Blueberries
Don’t forget, we will be closed the 4th and 5th of July next week, so plan your shopping accordingly!
We will be open our regular Saturday hours of 9-6 on the 3rd and reopen Tuesday at 9 am.
Today was a day of more firsts for the year! The Broccoli crop sent in its first 4 bushels of huge beautiful crowns. We will be picking them every other day for the next several weeks to months, so that is some wonderful news to share. We also have some of our fancy beets on the stand again, Touchstone gold, Blankoma white, and Chioggia striped in addition to our great traditional red ones. And as everything else is speeding along this summer, blueberries are already ripening up, we picked a few yesterday afternoon, and more will be trickling in soon. As they are in season we will try to have local berries whenever we don’t have enough of our own, so don’t worry about that.
You might have also noticed our homegrown Fava beans on the stand this weekend, amid the peas and green beans. Don’t miss out on that very short season! Pickling cukes are continuing to pour in and we picked our first honest to goodness cucumbers on Saturday as well. Not to give too much away but there is a rumor that Connecticut corn will be arriving later this week, which I am sure you know means that ours is right around the bend as well.
Additionally, Customer Appreciation Day is coming up on July 10th. The grand day when we encourage you to gorge on the free samplings of our many vendors. We are in the process of lining it all up now so mark your calendars, and come down hungry.
