Farmers Market Coop of East Liberty and J.L Kennedy Family Meat Stand Update

Posted 6/2/2011 6:19pm by Val Kennedy.
Update for Saturday June 4th- Strawberries are here!

We had a great market day last Saturday as many people stopped by to purchase their Memorial Day Holiday items.  We want to keep the momentum going and encourage people to keep supporting the market.  Each week we will see more and more local items available. I will keep you updated on new local items as the season progresses.

So for example this week we will have the first local strawberries of the season.  I always associate the appearance of strawberries as a sign that summer is finally here.

Locally grown items that will be available this Saturday:
  • Strawberries 
  • Micro greens
  • Green onions
  • Kale
  • Collards
  • Lettuce
  • Asparagus
  • Rhubarb
  • Flower and herb transplants
  • Spring flowers
  • Hanging baskets
Please stop by the Zang, Kistaco and Greenawalt booths for the fresh veggies.
