ARTfarm Saturday – Twice As Nice!

The 2015-2016 season is picking up steam at the ARTfarm. We plan to add a second checkout point in the morning to help move the line along faster! Thanks for your patience –we know that, as much as you enjoy catching up with friends and neighbors in the Saturday queue, you have other things to do!

Farmer’s Wife Christina, hauling in a mighty load of fresh veg!

Beautiful kale, full of vitamin C and iron. Delicious raw, cooked, in soups and omelettes, anywhere you’d use spinach, or tossed with sea salt and olive oil and baked in the oven until crispy. We kid you not; kale chips are all the rage with the young people.

Craving a crunchy snack? Carrots and radishes are your nutritious answer. Don’t forget to eat or juice the generous leafy tops. Radish greens are particularly delicious wilted on top of a hot dish.

As usual on Saturdays, we will be open 10 AM – 12 noon. A few new folks have requested directions to the farm, which are available on our website here: http://artfarmllc.com/eat-our-food/farmstand/

Loads of good things for Saturday: 

Loads of sweet salad mix, teen arugula, arugula, teen spicy, and  lettuce heads;

Large slicing tomatoes, loads of cherry tomatoes, loads of cucumbers, loads of summer squash, lots of green serrano hot peppers, some green sweet bell peppers, scallions, two types of kale, radishes, and carrots;

Italian basil, lemon basil, holy basil, Thai basil, mint, tarragon, rosemary, recao, cilantro, dill, edible marigold flowers;

Loads of zinnia flowers in many colors, passionfruit, and fresh sweet ripe Mediterranean figs!

Hopefully we will see our good friend Wanda the Bee Lady with her handcrafted honey meads and dressings at the stand too! 

Enjoy the weekend!
