It's Market Time

Today, Wed, June 6, marked the first market of the season! The weeks of exhaustive effort by David and Oscar came to fruition at Z Food Farm's farm stand. The first of the bounty consisted of kale (Tuscano and Red Russian), Swiss chard, radishes, kohlrabi, six varieties of lettuce, spinach, Asian greens, and garlic scapes. Potted herbs, tomatoes, basil, and other varieties were also available for sale. (A complete listing of the herbs will be forthcoming in the next day or so.

While the start of the market season is always fun and rewarding, today's start was special. It marked the start of the expanded CSA that is part of the farm. After a pilot program last season, the size of the membership was increased this season. It was great to welcome back returning members and to welcome to Z Food Farm all the new members. The support of the membership is greatly appreciated and it is hoped that all of you will enjoy the wonderful bounty in the months to come. It was also gratifying to welcome back many regular customers from the past couple of seasons. Your support is as important to the success of the farm as are those who are members of the Z CSA. We look forward to seeing you all over the course of the coming season.

What follows are some pictures from today's market.

Thanks again to returning members, new members, and all who stopped by at the farm today.

Happy and healthy eating to one and all.
