14&U Farmers Market

“The market is back this Saturday 9-1 And if you come really early, you can even get some of Garner’s early Strawberries: Sweet Charlies. The early summer weather jumped started their strawberry season ahead by weeks.

Just a sample of what the farmers are bringing:

There will be lots of green and purple asparagus,kale, yellow and red swiss chard, watercress, arugula, lettuces, salad mixes, spring onions, spinach, tender young collards, beets, radishes, lots of herbs — and even nettles to make French nettle soup (wear your gloves cutting them up). Green Garlic for pesto. Apple Cider, rhubarb, Asian pears, sunchokes, Goldrush, Fuji, Pink Lady and Braeburn Aples, Red Raspberry and Apple jam

Saturdays 9-1
14&U Farmers’ Market
NW corner of 14th and U on the Reeves Center Sidewalk.

We welcome WIC, Senior Get Fresh Checks, EBT/SNAP. Dogs and kids are both very welcome at the market.”
