Here's what's FRESH this Saturday:

Bear Creek Farms

Does it seem possible - only three markets to go? When it was so very hot it seemed as if summer would never end and now it seems as if summer has flown by. Weird! But some things never change - we still desperately need rain! The ponds are low, the creeks dry, the fields crispy and dust is covering everything - both inside and out.

But - amazingly - we still have produce. So this week we'll have greens - lots of chard, mustard, and kale. And there will be piles of pumpkins (pie pumpkins - wonderful for cooking or Halloween decorations), butternuts and other yummy squashes, eggplant, sweet potatoes, radishes, turnips, zucchini, cucumbers and more. And, just for fun - maybe some peanuts!

So come on out -relish this fall weather, stock up for winter, and just enjoy!

See you Saturday!

Lonnie and Jeanna

Red Ridge Farms
Guess what! This warmer weather is changing a few of the tomatoes- come early we'll have a few pounds. We are also picking lots of greens (lettuce, mustard, kale, saute mix, baby greens, broccoli raab, pea shoots, arugula, some head lettuce, etc), radishes, quite a variety of squash, sweet potatoes, potatoes, onions, LOTS of peppers, sweet and hot, pie and bigger pumpkins, eggplant, and all that other stuff I'm forgetting. See you at the market! -Ami, Jim, Anna and Andrew
