Friends of the Farmers’ Market,
Greetings. It looks like we will have a mostly clear and somewhat warmer farmers’ market this weekend. Don Willis will be playing classics on the accordion for us. The Fords will be back with their natural beef. Mendocino Organics should be selling some of their produce to non members as well. So those of you who have seen the members picking up the bountiful baskets of beautiful looking (and tasting) produce every week — this is your chance to check it out for yourself. Seems like a good week to get to the market.
New farms keep promising to arrive soon …
I will begin taking orders for bulk organic rice, beans and grains, to be delivered once per month. The available items are 11 pounds of pinto beans, brown rice or white rice to 17 pounds of triticale for $10 The rice is from Polit Family Farm and the beans & triticale are from Pleasant Grove Farm, which are as close as we could find a good supply. Anyone sense another farming opportunity?
Got legs? The farmers market has a very spiffy new sandwich board and is looking for someone to walk around various parts of town with it for an hour or two on Saturday mornings. If you are interested or have a family member who might be please drop me a line with contact information.
