Medfield Farmer's Market Share, Week #4

Posted 7/2/2018 3:56pm by Christy and Chris Kantlehner.

Good Afternoon Everyone!

It's that time of the week again!

Summer Share, Week #4:

  • 1 Head of Cabbage, choose 1: Napa, Gnome, or Green
  • 1 Slicing Cucumber 
  • 1 Head of Lettuce 
  • 1 Bunch of Fresh Onions
  • Choice of 3 (different): Radish, Carrots, Beets, Kohlrabi, Salad Turnips, Scallions, Swiss Chard or Kale

It's been so hot, that the first thing that comes to mind is Cole Slaw! I love the stuff! Super simple: Shred your Cabbage of choice, a couple of Carrots, and an Onion for a super basic Slaw, add a Beet for color or Kolhrabi for flavor and you will be good to go. Then cover it with your favorite salad dressing. Genius Kitchen has a good recipe here: Easy Cole Slaw. Or add our Virginia and Spanish Peanut Co natural peanut butter and make Once Upon a Chef's Asian slaw recipe: Asian Slaw with Peanut Dressing. Round off your meal with something easy to grill. We have sausages from Pat's Pastured Meats in our freezers and mushrooms from RI Mushroom Co out on the stand. 

We have ordered some extra bread from Iggy's Bread of the World in Cambridge, MA that we will be bringing with us to sell along with a selection of cheeses. Chris is planning to bring corn tortillas from Mi Tierra located in western Mass and we'll have some of our pasture raised meats from Pat's Pastured in East Greenwich, RI.

Picking up is simple, bring your bags and make your choices. We are there to help you identify what you are looking for. This season, Farmers Chris and Christy would like you to have as much choice as they can reasonably work into the Share. Because we are offering so many things to choose from, we cannot always guarantee that your first choice will be available every week. We hope that encourages you to try something new! We can guarantee freshly picked, locally grown, delicious vegetables and we are sure you will be happy with the variety over the course of the Summer Share season

With that in mind, if you do not want to pack your own share, there is another option. For $5 a week you can have Farmer's Choice! We will make a selection for you and pack it in the cooler waiting for you to come and pick up the share. If you are interested in that, please respond to this email.

Pick up is every Thursday 2 - 6, during the Medfield Farmer's Market. 

See you at the Market!
