Farm & Food Friday April 8, 2016

Happy Friday from spring green(sboro)! If you have a hankering for fresh strawberries, they’re available now, but you better wear your sneakers as you’ll need to run to get them before someone else gobbles them up.

Upcoming blog posts include one on Scrambled, the great new-ish diner on Spring Garden Street, a few about labelling, and maybe even one about GMOs, if I’m feeling brave. Don’t forgot to check out the markets page for an update on the market hours and times!


What’s abundant:

  • kale
  • green onions
  • radishes
  • spinach

Arrive early for strawberries!!!
