Farmers' Community Market at Brookside ~ SATURDAYS ~ 8am-1pm

The weather gods have been testing us of late. For those of you who missed the straight line winds or micro-burst or whatever it was last Saturday. Tents were flying, and a bit of panic was in the air, for a brief moment. Then, I saw a women’s handbag flying about 40 feet in the air and caught by Alex of Mood Wood Farms. What ensued after the shock, was a caucophony of laughter, farmers and shoppers alike working in a community effort to save what we could in the soggy mess.

Thanks to you shoppers, who stayed to help! We feel the love!
Nothing but sunshine and loads of sweat-blessed treats for us this Saturday. And, we welcome our new fruit and berry farmers Pat Mabary and Diane Packingham from Canaan Fruits. You’ve been asking for more berries and here they come!!

Blueberries

From Blue Door Farm:
As I look at the forecast this Wednesday afternoon it is showing me a sunny Saturday, free of pesky thunderstorms, floods and straightline winds. Please, oh, please let it be.
Blue Door will be bringing:
- more of those tasty Red Gold new potatoes
- fat, fresh-dug Candy onions and tasty scallions
- the versatility kings - zucchini and summer squash.
- yummy, blue/green "Winterbor" kale.
New this week? Carrots!
Also new this week? The folks behind the table! I'm taking a Saturday off, so Joe and Robert will be manning the booth. Joe has been working with me all season, so can tell you all about the veggies. Pay no attention to what he says about me however - it's all lies! :) Robert is a new, hardworking volunteer. I'd like to keep them both coming back, so be nice to them, okay?
Have a happy farmers' market!

From the KC Center for Urban Agriculture’s Community Farm
S U M M E R T I M E equals T O M A T O E S, G R E E N B E A N S and plenty of B A S I L. So, we’ll bring all we’ve got! CHERRY TOMATOES gift-wrapped for that special someone. FAVA BEANS with tasty summer recipes to take on a Sunday picnic. Since we ran out of new POTATOES last week we’ll dig extra and print out our newest favorite recipe. The SUGAR SNAP PEAS are surprising everyone with how they are holding on and still producing lovelies. And thank goodness the SUMMER SQUASH and CUCUMBERS are finally sizing up. The prettiest items on the table will be without a doubt our fantastic CANDY ONIONS. Really. Find them right next to the SPRING BUNCHING ONIONS, SCALLIONS and LEEKS. BROCCOLI, CAULIFLOWER and CABBAGE. Of course, they’ll be SALAD MIX, LETTUCE MIX, MICROGREENS, ARUGULA, WILD EDIBLE PURSLANE, FUNKY FRESH BRAISING MIX. KALE, SWISS CHARD, COLLARD GREENS, MUSTARD GREENS, KOHLRABI, BEETS, TURNIPS and CARROTS. and of course, fresh cut HERBS including LEMONGRASS, SORREL, ROSEMARY and many others.
We’ll bring the last of the basil transplants.
The guys- DANIEL, BOBBY and LES will be running the stand this week. They might even carry your produce to your car if you smile nicely.
Have a great Saturday! And as always, thank you for supporting GROWING FOOD IN THE CITY.

Red Ridge Farm
Amy and Jim will be back with their flowers, produce, garden pretties, and maybe a few more transplants.

Benedict Builders will have their sustainably and humanely raised meats, eggs, honey and artisanal cheeses.


We'll have some great music from our favorite band - the Freestate Ramblers.

Now just because you don't see a vendors name doesn't mean they won't be there. It may mean they were in the field and too busy harvesting their goodies. What surprises await?!!
