Market News December 15 2009 Market

(post, Lloyd Farmers' Market)

The cold weather finally let up. As I explained last week, most vegetables need to have a core temperature above freezing to be harvested so produce availability will be limited. A few farmers have greenhouses and cold frames and should be able to harvest. Greens will have limited availability. Root vegetables such as  beets, parsnips, carrots, radishes and turnips should be fine.  Winter squashes should be available as well. Apples, pears, chestnuts and hazelnuts should be available too. Pine Mountain Ranch will be coming so expect to find bison, chicken, yak and elk. Greenville Farms and Pine Mountain Ranch should both have eggs.
