Lettuce tell you about today’s harvest: sweet salad mix, teen spicy salad mix, baby arugula, and microgreens. Over in the tomato department we’ve got lovely heirlooms, paste tomatoes, slicers, and a few types of cherries! The veggie aisle at ARTfarm has crispy cucumbers, poetic beets, crunchy radishes, early bird sweet corn for the first few customers, lettuce heads, escarole, sweet peppers, assorted chili peppers, kale; the herb garden offers Italian basil, holy basil, lemon basil, dill, cilantro, parsley, garlic chives, recao, mint, lemongrass, and tender young ginger root. In fruit and home decor we’ve got gorgeous bright zinnia flowers and tangy passionfruit.

In the frozen section you’ll find I-Sha’s homemade vegan all-local coconut based, miraculously creamy non-dairy ICE CREAM in far-out local flavors from avocado to beet-ginger to locust bean to soursop. Always fun to see what Feel-I has come up with next!

We had a great visit from a former ARTfarm employee over the holidays and she managed to put in a few hours helping us out! We named a key garden after Maria years ago so it’s kind of like she never left! IMG_7710.JPG
Happy New Year! Thanks for shopping local and supporting family farms.
