Our summer crops are definitely winding down; the season feels like it's changing, and quickly. The peppers are suddenly done. There's still a bit of eggplant and basil, and plenty of beans. The fall crops are taking over now. It seems every week we have a few new things to add to our harvest list, and this week is no different - fennel and escarole, and carrots and beets in three colors each!
We are getting close to the end of the farmers market season. The Midtown Farmers Market ends in just three more weeks on 10/26, and the Raleigh Downtown Farmers Market ends in just four more sessions on 10/30. We do grow year-round though, and here's a reminder of when, where, and how you can continue to purchase our produce November through March:
- The Midtown Farmers Market continues to host an off-season pick-up on Saturdays, beginning November 2. We will not set up tables full of produce for you to choose from - you'll need to pre-order any items you'd like to pick up. To place an order, just reply to this email and send me your shopping list. We will be on the Commons at North Hills from 10am-12noon with your orders. We accept cash, checks, or you can pre-pay by joining our CSA and not have to worry about finding an ATM or remembering to bring the checkbook.
- We will have a mid-week pick-up at Harmony Farms in Raleigh, just north of 440 at Creedmoor & Millbrook. This is a "drop and run" location for us; we will not be there to hand over your orders, so you'll need to be a CSA member in order to use this location. Pick-up hours are 3pm-8pm on Wednesdays, beginning October 16.
- And you can purchase from us here at our farm in northeastern Johnston County (we're about halfway between Kenly and Middlesex). We do not have an on-farm store or roadside stand, so you'll need to pre-order the items you'd like in advance. Again, we accept cash, checks, or you can pre-pay by joining our CSA.
