6/29-7/1/2017: Price drops & new things


Quick things:

  • Eggs on sale, 10% off! 
  • Lots of seasonal price dropscherrieszucchini, cukes, and green beans have all come down in price, and collard greens might be at the lowest I’ve ever seen them.
  • Not only has the price on cherries come down, but this week we also have tart cherries, perfect for pies and preserving.
  • TOMATOES! A very limited quantity this week, and probably the highest price we’ll see all season. But probably worth it to grab one or two!
  • Also, PEPPERS! These are really one I thought it would be a few more weeks on — but we’ve got jalapenos and Hungarian Wax (albeit in somewhat limited quantities). I smell salsa fresca….
  • Lots of new items in fact: tart cherries, tomatoes and peppers, cauliflower, sweet yellow onions, and red new potatoes.

Scroll down for the list of things we’ll have this week!

We have now truly and officially reached the point in the year where I just can’t say yes to all the offers we’re getting — there’s so much available, and we have so little space! I think, though, that we have assembled a pretty awesome selection this week, and I can’t wait to eat all the new goodies. 🙂

I had intended this week to write about eggs — specifically, why they’re on sale, and, maybe even more specifically, why I don’t think they really need to be on sale — but it’s just not going to happen. Next week, I hope. In the meantime, I’ll take the lower price to be an indication that the farmer would like some help moving some additional eggs, and I’ll do my part by eating some additional eggs. Join me? 🙂

P.S. Remember how in our anniversary post I talked about working on being open more days/hours, whether in the market or not? It’s still not right around the corner — far from it, really — but we took an important step in that direction today. I’m serious that you shouldn’t get too excited, because I really do think it’s probably still a year away, but we are making progress!
