SoCo Farmers Market Newsletter 05-25-12

Peakaboo...I see NEW!

Here comes the the form of vibrant squash blossoms! Bringing their bright color and delicate flowers farm fresh to you from Bautista Farms. We also spied gigantic bulbs of garlic, a rainbow of red, purple, and white fingerling potatoes, and purple plums at their booth, which were perfect dipped in their meyer lemon chocolate sauce. Right next door you’ll find Atkins Farms produce pick, which includes Rainier and Brook cherries, and luscious varieties of peaches, plums, and nectarines, oh my! What’s on the menu at Menos? Organic, colorful kale, and so much more! See video
