39th Street Community Farmers' Market - WEDNESDAYS -

One too many rain dances have resulted in some gushy soil. That won't likely stop the vendors at the 39th Street Community Market from bringing you these choice offerings...

fennel
beets
lettuce
green onions
carrots
chard
kale
varied greens
turnips
kohlrabi
new potatoes
green beans
bulb onions
snow peas
zucchini
herbs
jams
sweet breads
jams and jellies
mosquito repellant
potted plants
grass fed beef
smoking hickory wood
handmade gifts
and possibly zinnia flowers and raspberries, if not this week then next.

We hope you, too, are bursting your buttons at all the local food you get to eat at this time of year. Here's a great suggestion someone made to me this evening regarding the wise use of greens...
