Ridgeview Farm brings their wonderful seasonable bouquets to the Wednesday market.  The recent heat wave means another round of summer’s favorite flower — the zinnia.    Ridgeview is in the middle of apple season.  They grow over 60 kinds.   Ask about the different apples – some have very colorful histories.

Welcome Twin Palms Farm to the Wednesday market.   Twin Palms has been at the Thursday market which sadly has closed for the summer, so they are joining us Wednesday mornings.

Here’s how the farmer describes the farm.  “We are a small-scale community-supported farm run by one farmer and his sidekick, always practicing natural and sustainable growing methods, bringing together the ingredients that make our bodies healthier without the use of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides or genetically modified plants. We are registered organic; practice dry-farming techniques whenever possible to conserve water; rotate crops and grow cover crops to ensure soil strength and fertility. Most importantly, we work hard and have fun growing our fruits and vegetables. Enjoy.”

These are some of what they grow Arugula, Apples, Beets, Broccoli, Bok Choy, Cabbage, Carrots, Cilantro, Cucumbers, Eggplant, Green Beans, Figs, Herbs, Kale, Kohlrabi, Lettuce, Onions, Peaches, Pears, Peppers, Plums, Potatoes, Pumpkins, Radishes, Raspberries, Salad Mix, Snap Peas, Spinach, Strawberries, Squash- Summer/Winter, Swiss Chard, Turnips, Tomatoes and Flowers.  They have a CSA
