I had to go to Columbia Saturday morning for a few errands, so stopped by the Farmers Market to visit with colleagues and just get a sense of how the early-season market was going. Holy crap. At around 10am, the place was jammed, with the market extending 2/3 of its total possible length and the parking lots quite busy. Easter probably helped, as did the beautiful sunny weather, but it was a really impressive turnout. Nice to see, and exciting for the coming start of our season.
We expect to start selling either April 24 or May 1, weather depending, with radishes, lettuce, chives, mint, possibly goose eggs, and more. Speaking of which, anyone who wants goose eggs can come out to the farm for some, we’re producing more than we can keep up with. They make great souffles, custards, and more.
