this week at market {may 4}

early may collage 2

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
  • Cookin’ Greens
  • Fennel (baby!)
  • Kale
  • Leeks
  • Potatoes (German Butterball, Blues & Fingerlings)
  • Purple Sprouting Broccoli
  • Rapini (Cabbage & Kale)
  • Rutabagas
  • Salad Turnips
  • Shallots
  • Spring Bunching Sweet Onions
  • Winter Squash (Delicata)

We’re headed to Market tomorrow with the usual suspects including an abundance of cauliflower and fabulous arugula.  This is a tricky time of year for farming as our overwintered and storage crops are dwindling but our newly planted spring crops are weeks away.  We’re appreciating your support and hope you’ll continue to show up to see what seasonal veggies might make an appearance from week to week.  This past week on the farm we spent several days in planting mode.  We transplanted chard, collards, cauliflower, kale, and salad mix and we direct sowed arugula, radishes, turnips, cilantro, dill, and carrots, plus we got our potatoes in the ground!  It feels good to have so many new crops in the fields.  We look forward to sharing them with you in the coming months.  This week we’ll be happy with what we’ve got in that list up there.

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.
