Market Day – August 23rd

This week we have an abundance of healthy veggies so make sure to head down to this Saturday’s mobile market locations to stock up on some of the delicious, fresh fruit and veggies. From our amazing local urban farm partner Fresh Roots we will be selling:

  • Kale
  • Chard
  • Parsley

  • Cucumber

On top of that we will also have the following:

Our featured veggie of the week is an artichoke! These biennial veggies are prickly member of the thistle family. The edible portion of the plant consists of the flower buds before the flowers come into bloom. They are great steamed, roasted or pickled!
