Have no fear, dinner is here!

Stop by the information booth at the market and check them out.

Our potatoes are oh so sweet thanks to the addition of Olivares Farms from Delhi, California, who which brings six varieties of sweet potatoes. The colors are just the beginning; the taste is the finishing touch. Olivares has the highly sought after Okinawa sweet potato, which is tan in color on the outside; like a russet, but bright magenta color on the inside!
