I ran my first Farmer’s Market booth at Trails End Farmer’s Market last Saturday, between 10am and 5pm, which was a great success!
However, I would like to extend an apology to anyone who bought the Spring Mix, as it was not properly dried before bagging, and has already started going bad. From previous experience, the Spring Mix should last at least a week, if not 2 weeks, in the fridge. I will ensure all future produce is properly dried before bagging and selling.
I may be back at Trails End this Saturday, July 22nd, depending on yields, but I will definitely be back on the 29th. Also, I won’t have any cherry tomatoes available this weekend, but I should have plenty on the 29th.
I will be changing the way we sell Basil from now on. I will be providing full Basil plants, in biodegradable sacs, at $1 each, due to lack of interest in larger quantities.
Finally, I would like to thank everyone who came out to Trails End on July 15th. I was so pleased with the reception and feel that this endeavor will definitely work, so I will be expanding (4X) next year; moving up from a 1/16th acre to a 1/4 acre. I had some really great conversations with some people at Trails End, and I’m really happy everything has come together the way it did.
You will be seeing me a lot more in the future!
