June 7, 2011 Old Rochester Farmers' Market


Yay! It is officially time to be planting!
It all begins with a flat or two...

Farms:

Allen Farm (Organic, Westport) Fresh Greenhouse Grown Greens, Potted Herbs
Each week, Allen Farms comes with a wide array of potted herbs, vegetable and herb starts as well as freshly grown greens. From herbs to tea plants, cherry tomato starts to freshly clipped pea greens Allen Farms brings you Spring's harvest to enjoy.

Engelnook Farm (Pesticide-free, Rochester) Farm fresh eggs, Great Hill Blue Cheese, Narragansett Creamery Cheeses and Yogurt, Llama Manure
Have you read all the buzz about using llama manure in the garden? It gets exceptional reviews--like you can use it close up to plants and it won't burn, it composts well, and it makes the plants grow big and with great color. That is only what you read about it. For certain, one would have to try it out to see...

J. H. Beaulieu Livestock and Produce Farm (Naturally grown field raised beef, eggs Fairhaven)
With all the reports that naturally raised, farm fresh meat is superior nutritionally and for its quality, Beaulieu Farm is committed to meeting these standards. Thanks, Joe.

Lucky Field Organics (Organic, Rochester) Root vegetables, Vegetable starts (including tomatoes and eggplant), Potted flowers, Fresh Herbs and Greens
Seed starts to fill in your gardens, fresh cut flowers to adorn your rooms, and veggies to fill the fridge can be found at Lucky Field. Weston and crew planted these seed starts in the green house, and have been tending to them for months for us. Let's plant them and enjoy them growing. Memorial Day has passed, and its time to get that earth moving.

Seafood:

Drake Lobster (Marion, MA) Fresh Caught Lobster
Jarrett catches lobster Tuesday morning and brings his catch directly to the market. These lobsters were hanging out in the ocean, not in a lobster tank. Lobster in the summer in Massachusetts--lucky us!
