Anyone can sign up to provide a meal for the family through this link. Thank you!

Online ordering is open. We will have order pick up in all the usual places this weekend, but we will not be able to set up our booth at Brandermill. (Orders for Brandermill will be picked up inside Good Health Herbs store, adjacent to the market parking lot. We will be at South of the James farmers’ market as usual. (Say hi to our wonderful staff! Dan and Janet will be at home with the baby.)

Recipe Suggestions: (always cataloged on our Recipe Page)
Stir Fried Bok Choy & Mizuna (our Hearty Mix has greens like this in it)
Pancetta, Mizuna, and Tomato Sandwich with Garlic Aioli (Use any of our greens for this. AND — use Arugula Pesto instead of the garlic Aioli.  And serve it – or anything else – with slices of Kohlrabi)
Simple way to enjoy our Hearty Mix, Arugula, Spinach, and/or Kale: This weekend we put 2 bags of these mixed cooking greens into a pot of stock with a cup of rice. Once rice is cooked, serve in bowls, topped with shreds of greyere cheese and salsa verde.
Mizuna (or any other greens!) Salad with Roasted Cauliflower
Mizuna and Arugula Salad with Feta & Champagne Vinaigrette
Garlic Chicken with Chard & Turnips


We will be at JUST ONE farmers’ markets this Saturday: South of the James in Forest Hill Park, from 8am – 12pm.
