Greetings Fearrington Farmers' Market shoppers!
We're coming to market with coolers packed with tasty homemade food made with wonderful ingredients from our farmers.
This week we'll have quiches and egg salad to showcase the delicious eggs available right now. We're also bringing our mushroom soup and vegetarian moussaka made with a rich mushroom tomato ragu. Of course we'll have our greens bake and xortopita packed with leafy field greens.
We'll be bringing dessert ... probably key lime pie and banana pudding. It depends how early we get started on Tuesday! :)
Please call the shop if you'd like to reserve something special: 919 545 5505
Thank you for all your support and we look forward to seeing you at market!

I was amazed, once again, by how many loyal customers braved the rainy weather we had last Tuesday. We hope you know how much we all appreciate your support -- thank you!
Squash season has definitely started and it is good to see how many folks remember the Mediterranean zucchini we grow -- Madga. If you haven't tried this pale green zucchini squash before, you don't know what you're missing! One of our seed catalogs says "Magda is full-bodied, tender, and almost nutty. Scrumptious fresh or cooked, it makes a hearty meal, and is so strongly flavored that you can enjoy it plain, sprinkled with a bit of salt, or as a meat substitute in sauces."
Salad Time continues... our arugula and sorrel will spice up any of our lettuce offerings. We will also have a good selection of kale and spring collard greens, bulbs of fennel, and probably the last of our green garlic (it's time to start harvesting and drying the crop).
We will have a cooler full of frozen whole birds, and all of your favorite cuts. These birds are raised on pasture so they get plenty of exercise which means they develop great flavor. They get moved every day to ensure fresh forage and a clean environment. We will have a good selection of eggs -- Jumbo, Large and Mediums and pullet-sized to choose from.
.... and don't forget to pick up a mixed bouquet for your table.

We will be at the market this week with the usual cookies, sourdough bread, and some other yeast bread. For sweet breads there's banana nut, orange blueberry, and maybe pound cake. The kitchen has been busy the last few days. There's new batches of squash pickles and beet pickles. New batches of jam include strawberry rhubarb, orange marmalade, raspberry, rhubarb, and new this season: raspberry rhubarb jam. Come by and try a sample! And of course there will be the promised blueberry muffins. See you Tuesday,

It didn't take long for the squash to get a little out of control, so we'll have an assortment of yellow and grey squash, zucchini and pattypan squash for you to choose from on Tuesday. We'll have the first of the onions, both red and white. We've still got a good supply of beets so you'll be able to pick up a bunch in your favorite color -- red, gold or white. The strawberries are slowing down, but we'll have a few quarts available. In the flower department we've got some beautiful sunflowers and mixed bouquets for you. See you Tuesday!
