Farmstand Product List January 9-15, 2013

Mourning the winter closure of your favorite farmer’s market? You can still find delicious seasonal produce, dairy, eggs, cheese, and meats year-round at the Fair Food Farmstand! Whether it’s APPLES from Three Springs, CHEESE from Birchrun Hills, or POULTRY from Griggstown, your Headhouse Square favorites are all here – along with fresh veggies from sustainable growers in the Delaware Valley region. Look for Landisdale Farm’s beautiful, green KALE, SWISS CHARD, COLLARDS, ARUGULA, and SPINACH, too! Brighten up your January with some hydroponic summer crops! Zone 7 brings MIXED COLOR BELL PEPPERS from Weaver’s Greenhouse, along with MIXED CHERRY TOMATOES, RED SALAD TOMATOES, and RED SLICING TOMATOES from White Star Growers.  These go beautifully with Bux-Mont Hydroponics’ heady, aromatic LIVING BASIL. Hydroponic methods allow growers to produce year round, use more sustainable practices (like no pesticides!) and give us a taste of the summer season’s warmth in midwinter. And don’t forget OYSTER MUSHROOMS from Davidson’s Exotic Mushrooms – in PA, ‘shrooms are in season all year round!

Our friends from Tuscarora Organic Growers’ Co-op in south central Pennsylvania bring a rainbow of wintry crops like GOLD BEETS and GOLD HUBBARD SQUASH, GREEN KOHLRABI, MAROON CARROTS, and JUMBO RED SHALLOTS – plus a few exotic items like RUSSIAN BANANA FINGERLING POTATOES and crisp, spicy WATERMELON RADISHES – delicious grated into slaw or crunchy winter salsa.

Finally, please note that Sunday is no longer 10% off produce as—especially at this time of year—the need to clear our inventory before the next week begins is minimal. Bargain-hunters can still shop our 40% off discount area for rough-around-the-edges veggies that need a good home (in a delicious dish).
