First Outdoor Market and Farm Stand this Weekend!

Posted 5/1/2014 2:10pm by Trent Thompson.

Greetings, Everyone:

Well, we made it! It was quite a winter, but we all survived. At the farm, we added a new little farmer, Jorah, born March 18. She's awfully cute but not pulling weeds just yet.

This spring has been a very busy one on the farm. We've added a two-acre orchard of mostly pears and apples with some paw paws and persimmons. Renovating the pole barn to create an indoor market and washing/packing space was also a large project. And, the high tunnels have kept us moving quick with lots of planting, weeding and NOW harvesting!

This weekend is a big one for the farm. We begin the outdoor market at Bank Street in Kalamazoo on Saturday morning (7-12 PM) and have the farm stand open at the farm on H Dr N on Sunday from 12:30-5:00 PM.

Pre-ordering for the farm stand (at the farm) can take place now until 8 PM on FRI night. ORDER HERE. Your order will be ready for you when you arrive. Or, you can just show up to the farm market and see what we have available. This is new! Pre-ordering online is no longer a requirement to shop our farm stand.

We will start the season off with lots of greens (kale, chard, spinach, and salad). Radishes, chives, green onions will round out our market selection. We will have more choices on the farm stand at the farm from other local producers, including things like quiche from Erin Hill of the Bakewell Co. and ramps from Sunshine Silo Farm in Leonidas. Much more selection to come. We are just getting started!

Recipes are readily available at market and the farm to help you out in the kitchen.

We look forward to seeing many of you again and meeting some of you for the first time this weekend!

Please never hesitate to ask us any questions.

Thanks again for your support,

Trent, Ruthie, Jorah and the Green Garden's crew
