Market Day – June 21

What better way to celebrate the longest day of the year by stocking up on your farm fresh veggies. We will be featuring produce from Fresh Roots Urban Farm this week including our veggie of the week: Fava Beans!

Fava beans are dense with nutrition. Also known as broad beans, fava beans have no saturated fat or cholesterol and contain a high concentration of thiamin, vitamin K, vitamin B-6, potassium, copper, selenium, zinc and magnesium. They are also an inexpensive source of lean protein.
