Can you believe it’s almost the end of the season? We can’t! We hope you join us for our last two weeks of Market and savor the taste of a Massachusetts fall with us.
We apologize for not being able to carry corn last week, but we’re going to try to again this week. It just wasn’t plump enough in the field, but I heard this week it is just about ready.
With any luck we should be carrying cranberry beans! Cross your fingers. if I can, I’ll post an update regarding whether or not we’ll have them FOR SURE and if we can sell in bulk.
We should also be carrying apples, beets, cabbage, cantaloupe, carrots, cilantro, collards, kale, onions, red potatoes, sweet potatoes, habaneros, green bell peppers, zucchini, tomatoes, winter squashes, and we might even have some tomatillos.
From wikipedia: Lacinato kale grows 60 to 90 centimetres (2 to 3 feet) tall and has dark blue-green leaves with an “embossed texture”; its taste is described as “slightly sweeter and more delicate […] than curly kale.” The lacinato variety is sometimes called dinosaur kale because its bumpy leaves may resemble what dinosaur skin looked like, and perhaps because the unique appearance of the leaves is evocative of primordial flora. Because of its taste, “slightly bitter [and] earthy”, it has been called “the darling of the culinary world”
If you’ve bought lacinato kale from us, know proudly it was grown in right here in Somerville at South Street Farm!
