The parking lot has been packed lately. From our point of view, it’s not necessary for everyone to show up at 10am to get most all of what they’re looking for. Here’s the breakdown, feel free to come a little later!
Late-bird items we should have a good supply of, all the way until 12 noon (in the golden hour between 11am and 12 we usually only get two or three customers. It is nice and quiet and there are still PLENTY of goodies!): Salad mix, baby arugula, baby spicy salad mix, lots and lots of tomatoes and heirlooms, unbelievable amounts of cherry tomatoes, lots of cooking greens, huge amounts of baby ginger, baby turmeric, sweet bell peppers, carrots, dill, butternut squash and Thai pumpkin slices. This is also a great time of day to socialize your farmers and make sure that they don’t get too grouchy.
Earlier-bird items we will have a good bit of at 10am but probably won’t last past 11 o’clock: onions, SWEET POTATOES, cucumbers, lettuce heads, Italian basil, garlic chives, parsley, cilantro, sage, thyme, lemongrass, recao, seasoning peppers, Serano peppers, beets, radishes.
Crack-of-dawn-bird: And now for the things that will sell out quickly because we don’t have enough. (It is hard for Farmer Luca and his awesome team to grow this much variety AND grow large quantities of all of it. Some things we will unfortunately have less of from time to time.) This week on the shortlist is watermelon, and figs.
Just a reminder if you can bring any of the donation items listed below to help out Sejah Farm this week and next while they are hosting 15 farmers from the states in an effort to restore and rejuvenate their farm post-hurricane, you may bring them to us and we will deliver them; or bring them over to Sejah in person. Thank you!
