Spring has come again to Froggy Meadow! We are busily planting and preparing our fields and gardens for the coming 2015 season. It's a little early but here's a preview:
Garlic Scapes will be first to arrive in early June. Next up will be a lovely selection of peas, Golden Snow, Purple Snow, and tasty Sugar Snap peas will arrive just after the scapes. Beets come next at the end of June, both Chioggia and Golden. Beautiful colors and taste. In July things start to really happen and you'll see Eggplants, Tomatoes, Tomatillos, Raspberries and Cucumbers of many types. Green Walnuts for the Nocino makers and picklers are available for a short time in early July as well. At the end of July the potatoes come in and We'll have Magic Molly, Peter Wilcox, and German Butterball. Last but far from least will be the great Music Hardneck Garlic and rare French Shallots that we're well known for. Look for them in mid August. Our Cippollini onions, red and golden, are getting extremely popular and rightfully so. They're great tasting and store well. Arriving mid August as well. As August ends we'll bring you a fabulous tasting Orangeglo watermelon and nutty flavored Japanese sweet potatoes. Look for lots of other products along the way. Check back each week and we'll list the products coming to market.
As we've become more popular it's getting easier and easier to sample our products. Here are some of the venues where we can be found:
On Wednesday from 7:00am-1:00pm find us at Chicago's Green City Market in Lincoln Park.
Saturdays we'll be at State and Grand for the Beloit Farmers Market.
Eataly Chicago Market is now carrying our products in their vegetable section. If you're visiting downtown Chicago please ask for our products by name.
North Pond, one of Chicago's finest restaraunts uses our products. Enjoy a finely crafted meal in the heart of Lincoln Park.
Thanks again to all the great customers and we'll meet at the market again this year!
