Farmers’ Market Bag 4-14-10
Hello all FMB supporters!
We have some wonderful produce for you this week, but we’d like to suggest that you eat your strawberries & turnips right away! Due to the HAIL experienced by the farms, brought by this week’s storms the strawberries are very tender & the greens on the turnips have had better days. We assure you that everything is fresh & arrived today, but mother nature likes to wreak havoc at times!
