ON THE TABLE IN FARM SHOP… Arugula, Radish, Tomatoes (reds/oranges, plums), Leeks, Onions, Garlic, Spaghetti squash, Watermelon (yellow/reds), Cantaloupe, Potatoes, Beets, Carrots, Peppers (nice assortment of colors coming in), Eggplant.  Mix and Match options.  

PICK YOUR OWN…

 

  • New Green Beans – very tender, just coming in. 
  • Flowers – lots of sunflowers (don’t be shy!) and others – 1 big bunch of anything you like. 
  • Herbs – nice Dill and Cilantro (near driveway). Sad to say not a great basil season.  Instead, try Oregano/Thyme – I always roast cherry tomatoes in the oven with mixed herbs, amazing results! Also Chives. 
  • Cherry Tomatoes – get um while you can!  Roast in oven and freeze for later use. 
  • Tomatillos – new crop for us – look for ones breaking away from husks.  How about Salsa Verde?!
EXTRA JERSEY FRESH FOR SALE… Local farms supporting local farms (and artisans)!  We thank you for your patronage.
  • Peaches and Corn – Pastore Orchards, Hammonton.  Best season yet! 
  • Hammerbacher – fresh breads and provisions – warms the soul;
  • Pasta, homemade – ravioli, gnocchi, spaghetti – Red Room Café;
  • Cheeses, Fulper Farms;
  • Chicken Sausage, Griggstown Farms;
  • Eggs, Cycle Farms.

FARM UPDATES… Summer is fleeting, staff are back to college.  We say farewell and good luck to Carey and Jess – your efforts were much appreciated!  Others will go to part time (Gina and Katie) and we welcome new staff for the fall.  Ryan and I are better farmers surrounded by our farm family; we will miss you guys and thank you for being a part of it!   
 
 
GALLOWAY FARM MARKET… Support local. Sundays 10 am-1 pm, Galloway Municipal Complex.  Now through Oct.  Help spread the word and let’s grow this thing!  
See you on the Farm.
