Here is our market menu for this week.

The spaghetti squash are hanging in there. We have about 30 of the personal size left.

The carrots and parsnips are now safely in storage for the winter. November is the best time to pick the best carrots and parsnips of the year. Can you guess why? Frost! You need a few hard frosts to bring out the sweetness of those carrots. The children call our carrots "candy carrots" because of this crunchy sweetness. Here is a link to an article on our web site about why carrots are sweeter with frost?

We will have the following items at the Farmers Market for Saturday, March 5, 2016 (New items are in Bold Print)

Cabbage - Red

Walla Walla Sweet Onions
Red Onions

Pickles: Spicy Dill, Sweet Sandwich, Okra, Dilly Bean, Corn Relish, Pepper Relish.

Chipotle Smoked Peppers

Charcoal (home grown, home made). Made three fresh batches in the last week.
