Farmers' Market Report – Week of April 1st

Happy Monday!
How did everyone like their Fava’s? Amanda (our microgreen queen and your FM packer) made the mistake of eating one without removing the 2nd shell!! Ha ha, priceless! But yes, under that waxy shell, they are super sweet and fresh; not ONE BIT mealy. McGrath Farms and Coastal has more this week, supplies are goin’ good!
Another great new spring item is Polito Family Farm’s “Tom’s Terrific” Tangerines!! Trust me, you’re going to want this. I am not bringing in anymore Paige tangerines and bringing in these instead, that’s how TERRIFIC they are. We tried a sample last week and were in heaven. They are technically the Tahoe variety, originally developed via UC Riverside’s famous citrus breeding program. Easy to peel, 99% seedless, and JUUIIICCCYYY. Eat it over the sink and don’t say I didn’t warn you. $2.70 per LB, a little cheaper than the Paige. 🙂
Also, Weiser’s Bloomsdale Spinach was too small to cut, so this week will be Rutiz Farm! SNOW Peas available this week from Tutti Frutti Farm – SUPER SWEET!
The not-so-good news: Purplette Scallions from Rutiz Farm is gapping for the next 2 weeks. Harry’s Berries Baby Roma and Yellow Cherry Tomatoes will be gapping for about 3 months. Romanesco from 2 Peas in a Pod now will not be available for several weeks. The weather destroyed his new planting, and we must wait for the other field to come in. 🙁Baby Pink Turnips from Coastal Farm are still not available for 2 more weeks (I know I keep saying 2 weeks, sorry!), and Baby Broccoli is N/A for 2 weeks as they await their new planting. BUT, I am bring in the Weiser Farm Baby Green AND Purple Broccoli, which is a little larger than Coastal’s but equally delicious.
Until next week,
Laura

    Farmers' Market Report – Week of March 18th 2009

    Good afternoon, everyone!
    We have some exciting new items to share with you this week:
    Weiser Family Farms’ Baby Purple Broccoli, which is a specific seed variety called Red Arrow. It’s not purple all the way through, but the green stem and leaves contrast it very nicely. It has a mild flavor and the farmer recommends slicing thinly and serving raw, or do a very quick saute if desired to keep the color!!
    Jaime Farm just started up farm fresh eggs – they use a few different breeds of chickens, so these eggs will come assorted – brown, green, white, and blue-ish white. Beautiful!!! Please pre-order!
    Romanesco from 2 Peas in a Pod will not happen this week – he is in the midst of transitioning into his new field and are a little too small to harvest just yet. Also, Baby Pink Turnips from Coastal Farm are not available for 2-3 weeks, but her Baby Gold Turnips are! And, NO Fava’s until next week!! They’re so close, though, just one more week to size up.
    No worries, though, there’s plenty of other fabulous produce coming in – check out Jaime Farm’s BABY Rainbow Chard this week (about 5-6 in long) or Spring Onions!
