We hope to see you at the Historic Lewes Farmers Market (HLFM) on Saturday morning. Looks like a great weekend again with the weather moderating and providing clear skies with low humidity!
The market is beginning to have an abundance of early summer vegetables such as zucchini, squash, carrots, beets, plenty of lettuce and more. I love the new vendors and the new products. I hope you walk around and take it all in, especially before July crowds arrive.
Plants for Your Garden
We have nurtured our last planting of tomato plants and they look terrific. Therefore, if you have any room in your garden area, you can still grab a good hybrid plant, an unusual heirloom or choose from several different types of cherry tomato plants.
We are featuring a brand new batch of Benary Giant Zinnias this weekend.
And look for other plants on sale this week too!
The produce is becoming more and more abundant at Hattie’s Garden.
- Carrots – We have lots of young carrots
- Swiss chard – Huge bunches!
- Beets – Young bunches with Greens
- Hakurei Turnips – This white salad turnip sets the standard for flavor
- Head Lettuce – We have lovely Butterhead and Romaine this week. These are unusual varieties with wonderful flavor and great colors. We will probably keep them in a cooler to keep them nice, so be sure to look around!
- Young Loose Leaf Lettuce Salad Mix
- Young Arugula
- Mesclun Mix – a mix of lettuce and various Asian greens and arugula
- Spicy Arugula – We didn’t know what to call this one! It is still a young leaf of arugula, but a bit larger than our youngest product. Great in salads, but this one is definitely spicier than the youngest leaf. Some of you simply prefer the spiciest arugula we can bring to market! It also comes in a somewhat larger quantity than our young arugula.
- Freshly cut Herbs – We are now cutting nice large bunches of parsley, dill and cilantro and our large bunches of “mojito” mint look especially nice this year.
Look in the small red cooler by the cash box for our herbs.
See you at the market and in the garden!
P.S. If you need plants and cannot come to the market Saturday, you may contact Hattie to make separate arrangements for Sunday or early next week.
