Saturday’s ARTfarm Summer Pop-up is a mango mashup. We will have Mallika mangoes from our good friend Alex with Tropical Exotics Farm.
Mallika mangoes are one of Farmer Luca‘s favorite mangoes. They are green to yellow medium to large mangoes, with no fibers to get stuck in your teeth. Very nice, warm flavor with citrus scent.
Also ARTfarm grown mangoes including Nam doc mai, and Haitian kidney! Not very many of our own mangoes because this drought is ongoing. For flavor descriptions, enjoy our Mango Flavor Guide.
Other items: A few sweet summer papayas, and literally just a couple dragonfruit for the earliest early birds. We will also have three types of turmeric, garlic chives, kefir lime leaves, lemongrass (aka “fever grass” – makes a cooling bush tea drink), and at long last – a few dozen fresh eggs from our littlest farmer’s own flock of chickens. She is working on a gorgeous label for her packaging.
Pineapple slips (baby plants) have been flying out the door at ARTfarm lately. These drought resistant plants are great to plant on a hillside or in a large pot. We’ll have a couple dozen slips for sale at the pop-up, the same Sugarloaf variety we grow and sell. Our easy Pineapple Grower’s Guide with helpful video tutorial can help you get started with your own mini pineapple farm.
We look forward to seeing you Saturday, 11 to 11:30. We won’t have any salad mix available, sorry folks. Please mask up and social distance!
