Hello from Pitchfork & Crow ~

We’re harvesting for the Salem Saturday Market!  Here’s a selection of what we’ll be bringing to market:

  • Arugula (!)
  • Cabbage (overwintered red and red/green savoy)
  • Cauliflower
  • Collards
  • Cookin’ Greens
  • Fennel (baby!)
  • Kale
  • Leeks
  • Potatoes (German Butterball, Blues & Fingerlings)
  • Purple Sprouting Broccoli
  • Rapini (Cabbage, Collards, Kale!)
  • Rutabagas
  • Salad Turnips
  • Shallots
  • Spring Bunching Sweet Onions
  • Sunchokes (aka Jerusalem Artichokes)
  • Winter Squash (Butternut & Delicata)

We’re heading into our fourth Market week already.  Can you believe it?  I keep seeing articles around the internet suggesting folks start looking for Farmer’s Markets to make an appearance in the next few weeks.  And here we are, already a month into it!  Thanks for knowing where to find us, and continuing to support us.  Our fantastic customers certainly make this farming thing worth the effort.  This week we’ve been busy sowing squash and cucumber seeds, prepping ground for planting, and transplanting broccoli, cabbage, peas, beets, and bok choy.  We’re looking forward to those future veggies.  This week we’re happy to bring you that list above, especially the fabulous cauliflower.  It’s definitely the star of the show!

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.
