Farmers Market--December 5th

As many of you know, we've been talking for weeks about a year end sale of root vegetables, potatoes, and squash. We realize it's a big short notice, but we'll be at North Market tomorrow doing just that.

From 8am to 11:30am, we'll sell beets, turnips, rutabaga, radishes, squash and potatoes, along with a few greens and herbs. As usual, we'll have a table full of delicious fall crops but we'll also have field run crops (with dirt left on for good storage). What does this mean? It means you can store veggies through the winter months, at a fraction of the cost. It's a great way to eat local during the colder months, support Wayward Seed Farm, and save money on your food budget. Everybody wins!
