After the Frost

It could have been worse, is probably the best we can say. Certainly, the more tender crops have been damaged, but it could have been much worse. Did it affect us? Absolutely. We usually cruise the markets at the end and snap up what the retail customers did not get. These hard working farmers have spent a lot of time developing their weekly customers, and we don't want to buy it all out from underneath them as we buy in very large quantities. It's a system that works well for all, until there is a shortage of what is usually an abundant crop. Long story short  - nothing left over for us this week. But we are glad there was still something for you and for the farmers to sell!

So, what do we do? Drop back and punt! Seriously, these are the moments we are grateful for food from elsewhere. We ordered from a distributor of organic produce. We feel the chemical free farming methods do help offset the transportation issue. Again, nothing is perfect, we simply strive to make the best choices we can. It also helps as next Saturday is Christmas and there will be no farmers markets that day. So, at least we are stocked up until New Year's Day market!

Holiday sides and desserts par-baked and ready for take out Thursday 12/23/10 and Friday 12/24/10!
