Hello from Pitchfork & Crow ~
We’re headed to the Salem Saturday Market! Here’s a selection of what we’ll be bringing to market:
- Apples – we’re calling them Gravensteins, you can just call them tasty!
- Asian Pears – small but flavorful!
- Basil (!)
- Cooking Greens
- Cucumbers – picklers, slicers, and lemons!
- Green Peppers
- Potatoes – fingerlings and all blues
- Summer Squash
- Tomatoes – small slicers on the vine and saladettes mostly
We’re a little late letting you know, but we are indeed headed to Market today. The weather folks are predicting a fantastic weekend and hopefully you’re planning to spend a slice of it at the Market. Fall is in the air though, and we’re bringing some happy greens and staples like carrots and potatoes for your roasting pleasure. We’ve been busy of late seeding the last of our overwintering crops and beginning to set up a storage cooler in the barn amongst a million other catch-up projects. We’re looking forward to a winter full of actual catch-up, while our potatoes, apples, and winter squash hide out in their new storage cooler home. For now, we hope you have a fabulous weekend enjoying the late summer warmth.
We hope to see you Saturday sometime between 9am and 3pm. You can find us at the Salem Saturday Market near the intersection of Winter and Union streets in downtown Salem.
