Sweet, local strawberries

strawberriesThe ones you get at the grocery store just don’t compare to freshly picked strawberries from a local farm. No pesticides, and they haven’t been trucked in all the way from California or Florida. Taste the difference!

What else is in season? Lettuce, spinach, kale and other greens, turnips, radishes, green onions and garlic scapes. Back Acres Farm is bringing a taste of midsummer with zucchini and tomatoes from their hoop house. Still not too late to add some plants from Village Green to your veggie garden. And, as always, you can count on finding meat, bread, eggs, cheese, yogurt, granola, smoothies and natural body care products.
