First week of the Market and CSA!

Believe it or not, Farmer’s Market and CSA season is upon us!

On the 15th, the Tuesday Grower’s Market will begin.  4:30-6:30pm in the Moscow Food Co-op’s Parking lot.

On the 16th, the Pullman Farmer’s Market will be from 3:30-6pm.  Hopefully the earlier time will catch some more visitors!  The market will be in the same location as last year: The Spot Shop parking lot on Kamiaken just up the hill from Swilly’s Restaurant.

We WILL be attending both markets and we WILL have CSA pickups for folks at each of those markets. 

The CSA share for the first week as well as the net couple will be fairly light and very green.  The first few crops coming ready for the first week include salad mix, radishes, baby kale and chard.  There will be a couple other crops as well but just about everything will fall under the category of “baby” for the first few weeks.  I have to say, we are rather impressed with ourselves between building two hoophouses and such a cold, wet spring along with moving house for ourselves, that we have managed to grow just enough crops to bring shares to market these first few weeks.  Don’t forget however that as we get further into nice weather and more veggies come ripe that the shares will be nearly bursting at the seams! In the meantime, my mouth still waters when I think about the first meals of fresh veggies from our gardens!
