Farm Box-Farm Stand January 13th

Today is Friday, January 13th and the stand will be open all day, from 10am-5pm.

It is located on the corner of Spring Street at Elm Avenue nestled off to the side of the Spring Street Farm Project with row after row of berries and veggies. Swing by and shop…or just grab a box!  A selection of just picked goodness has been packed up for you, it’s practically a drive through.

Today’s farm box contains:
Romaine lettuce
Red leaf lettuce
Brussel Sprouts
Red Potatoes
Red Onion
Fennel and

They sell out early, if you pre-order for next week, Tuesday or Friday we’ll make sure to save you one!! And if you want to add a dozen eggs, we can do hen, duck or a combination of the two!!


Turkey Day Farm Box!

Oh, the long lost tradition of holiday postcards and the amazing letterpress designs…this one is from 1916.

Because our weekly Farm Stand is open on Fridays, we thought it would be nice to have a special day, this Tuesday-November 22nd to distribute some farm freshness for your traditional recipes on this cook’s holiday!  We have included several items that are usually on the shopping list…

What’s Pho dinner?

Over here at the Spring Street Farm Project, we are just launching our weekly Vegetable Box program.  We start with the basics in the boxes…you know, the standard stock items- onion, celery, carrot (green bells during summer and the mire poix becomes the trinity).  Add some lettuces and seasonal pantry musts like tomato, zucchini, cucumber, asparagus, artichokes, peas, beans and you have a good foundation for whatever strikes your fancy.  Now for the fun part – ethnic add-ons!  Feeling like pho for dinner?  We will toss in all the ingredients you need for several bowls of aromatic comfort in a bowl.  A typical Asian add on would include:  sprouts, asian greens including something from the choi family, ginger, mint, cilantro, thai basil, onion and limes….you get the idea.
If you would like a box this week, stop on by the stand on Elm today between 10a-5p or tomorrow at Green Lab.  Message me to order an add-on or leave a note here in the comments.  Thanks!!
