Dearest Eaters,

The moment you've all been waiting for: URBAVORE's famous strawberries are here! We are picking around the clock. And believe me, my back is feeling it!!

A portion of the harvest is available for PRE-ORDER online to be picked up at the Brookside Farmers' Market this Saturday. Berries will also be available at the Farmers' Market on a first-come-first-serve basis. Market opens at 8:00 and I suggest you get there bright and early. Our berries sell FAST!

*Please note, the market is temporarily being held in a NEW LOCATION at HJ's Community Center, 6425 Wornall Rd., KCMO 64113. We move back to Border Star at 63rd and Wornall starting June 20th.

*Farmers care about your safety and health!! Please wear a mask and gloves and be prepared to keep a 6-foot distance from you fellow shopper. Our market crew will be masked, sanitizing between each transaction, and handling all products to keep the market tables germ-free. There's no better place to secure wholesome safe food to nourish the body and soul!!!!

And now, how about some field shots!! I always say, pictures speak louder than words. Check-out our gorgeous berries, and get a glimpse of our divine vegetables:
Strawberry fields forever. This is one of three large strawberry fields at URBAVORE.
The crew (consisting of me, Dan, and our two awesome farm apprentices) pick every day ALL DAY during strawberry season. It is back breaking work my friends!
Our berries are famous for their pristine quality and flavor. We only harvest "truly ripe" berries and we practice maddening quality control which our apprentices are painfully trained to. Dan and I are PICKY!
Solomon doesn't like it when his parents work 12-hour days picking berries, but we keep him happy with (you guessed it) BERRIES!
Percy is a well-trained picker. He keeps our personal fridge well-stocked. 
There's so much more to harvest than berries. Our kale crop is INSANE this year. The leaves are massive, healthy, and deeply flavorful.
"Oasis" Salad Turnips will be piled high on the market table this week. They are sweet, supple, and absolutely wonderful raw in salads or sliced and dipped in hummus!
This is the last week for our radiant Hirosaki Red Turnips. We eat these beauties raw, but they are also excellent cooked. The greens are an added bonus!
This is likely the last week for asparagus!! It's a customer favorite and will be greatly missed.
Heirloom Lettuce Heads will be oh so abundant this week. My favorite variety is "French Butterhead" with a sweet & creamy disposition that melts in your mouth. We make a mean strawberry salad with this variety. 
Rainbow Chard will hit the market tables for the first time this year. I can't wait to harvest these gorgeous flavorful leaves!
Garlic Scapes are a seasonal delight! They will be available this week and next.
Okay, that's a wrap. I hope you guys enjoyed the photos. Now...gotta pick those berries!!! See you Saturday locavores.

Yours Truly,

Farmer Brooke

P.S. The shopping page comes down on Thursday at midnight so that we can pack pre-orders. However, you can always show-up at market and shop spontaneously. No need to place orders online! xoxo
