This is just too good to throw on the announcements page (from the BFM organizers):
I am VERY excited to tell you that we are adding a NEW vegetable
farmer to Bloomingdale Farmers Market starting THIS Sunday. I just came back from a farm visit where I saw all their fields including these tomatoes plants that are growing healthy and tall ( field -ripened tomatoes coming soon!)
Their Virginia fields are in a warm, sunny microclimate so their crops ripen early — and they will add a LOT of variety to the market. (think sweet corn in late June)
This Sunday they will bring: quarts of mixed baby squash (zucchini, one ball, 8 ball, sunburst, pattypan, Kousa), mixed summer squash, squash blossoms, broccoli, baby new potatoes (red Pontiac and Yukon Gold), asparagus, vidalia-style sweet onions, spring onions, english peas (shelled and unshelled), sugar snaps, purple top turnips, Choggia beets, red beets, swiss Chard…..and the first raspberries
of the season (come early, they will go fast)
And Flowers,too. They will bring their field- grown flowers (lilies, yarrow, zinnia) and their beautiful hanging baskets on Sunday. (They will also have bedding plants and flowers.)
Please stop by and welcome Garner to the Bloomingdale Farmers Market.
They are very excited about becoming part of BFM!
