Taste the Season
Preserve that farm fresh flavor in a jar so you can taste the Season past its peak. Get a preserving cookbook, or ask Master Food Preservers about pickling, preserving, fermenting, and even dehydrating too! You can also stop by Bautista Creek to find striped green zucchini pickles, heirloom sun dried tomatoes & specialty jams.

Peakaboo, I see new!
The Kadota Fig light, with a green color and delicate skin and flesh can be found at Nicholas Family Farms now. You’ll also find its darker counterpart, the Mission Fig snuggled up beside it. Both varieties are deep, dark wells of flavor that can be enjoyed tossed in salads made with red leaf romaine from Menos Farms, served with cheese from The Cheese shop in The Mix, and honeycomb from Bee Ladies Honey, with almonds from Hopkins AG.
Add did you know Bautista Creek has rainbow colored beans?

Guess who's back? 
Heinz from Around the World Herbs returns after a two week absence because of lost crops from the hot heat of Hemet. They and all our farmers are taking a hit due to the heat, with lost crops and wilted produce. Your purchase supports their livelihood, it makes a difference. We appreciate all you do for our farmers.
