 MERRY CHRISTMAS to you all and a HAPPY NEW YEAR –  may 2015 bring good health, happiness and bountiful harvest for  all our farmers.

This week at the market:

All farm stalls will be at the market this week with the exception of:

  • Narbey’s Best Avocados – unfortunately their avocado season has finished. Doug and Blanche hope to be back early in the new year with mangoes.
  • Blueberries will not be at the market in December; hopefully back in January.

A good supply of passionfruit continues at Jumping Red Ant.

Jumping Red Ant also has avocados for another couple weeks and more freshly picked tomatoes.

Fresh beans and corn are still in abundance.
