Market Highlights: Headhouse Market May 3rd
Tuesday, May 05, 2015
The first Headhouse Farmers’ Market of the season was Sunday, and most regular vendors were already in attendance. No Tom Culton this year, as he was reportedly not invited back, but plenty of others with a surprising variety of produce for so early in the year. Blooming Glen had a green that was new to me - kale raab, the tops of overwintered kale plants.
Longview Flower Farm had a selection of herbs as well as bouquets of gorgeous deep purple tulips and lilac. Weavers Way brought fiddlehead ferns and ramps, freshly foraged. Several farmers brought seedlings, such as tomatoes and peppers from Savoie Organic Farm and Asian squash varieties from Queens Farm. Most promised more seedlings next week, so there’s plenty of time to plant that garden.
And asparagus? We got ours from a quickly dwindling basket at Three Springs Fruit Farm, but it looked like A.T. Buzby Farm had them as well.
