NEW VISITORS EXPECTED
We expect some broad-spectrum advertising to bring many new shoppers to see M.O.M. in August - this week might be a good time for our regular patrons to reestablish connections with our growers.
WELCOME (again) to Beau Solais' mushrooms this week - they might have some micro-greens, too. (NOTE: a temporary production issue prevented Rick from attending last week).
TOMATOES and some FRUIT are coming in soon... are you ready to do some canning?
Please bring small bills, shopping bags and solidarity to your local farmers market, and remember: slow food requires patience and understanding. Buying organically-grown vegetables and other local products "In-Season" means just that - when it is ready for harvest, your growers will bring it in.
