We will not be at market this weekend. Last week’s income didn’t really justify returning with the same mix of items, so we’ve been working to arrange other sales venues for some of it, and just preserving the rest or sending it home with our workers. In addition, we have a lot of on-farm projects to work on and with fall coming on (we got a light frost Wednesday night) we’d like to truly get started on our off-season task list.
We still have a good quantity of garlic remaining, and have recieved numerous inquiries from people looking for a winter supply and/or planting stock. From this point on we’ll probably come every other week or so, as we did last year in the fall, balancing the long time commitment of market with the desire to meet demand for fall garlic sales. There will be some other fall items available, like cabbage, radishes, and greens, but these are more stable in the field and so can adapt to an alternating market schedule the way regularly-harvested crops can’t.
Our apologies to those who will miss us, but it’s just not worth it overall right now.
