Garlic Scapes, Lychees & Santa Rosa Plums

Market Update

We are excited to see the first garlic scapes of the year, at their tender best, from Farm Girl Farm in western MA.  Strawberries are getting better, and our friend Ted Dobson now has, in addition to his beautiful mesclun mix, native baby arugula and native baby kale.  From Queen’s Greens, we have perfect and beautiful french breakfast radishes and baby hakurei turnips.  We continue to get small tender pea greens from Maine.  And the stone fruit just keeps getting better–see below for the full list of what’s in house now.  Fresh lychee fruit arrives tomorrow.  Black Mission figs are looking, and tasting, good.  First of the season California heirloom tomatoes from Terra Firma Organic Farm here.
