NOVEMBER 15th FARMERS MARKET! see you there!

November 9th, 2012 by caitlyn

Please mark your calendars! We’ve been working hard to grow a well-rounded, fresh array of vegetables for the holiday season. We’ve strategically timed all of our seeding and transplanting, and we’ve babied and nurtured our crops so that they’ll be as healthy and vigorous as possible for a big mid-November harvest. Now, we’d like to enthusiastically encourage you to PUT LITTLE CITY GARDENS PRODUCE ON YOUR THANKSGIVING TABLE!

Here are the details:

1) VISIT US AT THE MISSION FARMERS MARKET on THURSDAY NOV 15TH from 4-8pm (22nd St & Bartlett). This is the only time we’ll be at the market for the rest of this year, so please come on out! Never been to this market? Now’s a great time to give it a try! Is this outside your normal shopping routine? Consider shaking it up for one week in order to support us!

We’ll have: mountains of lacinato kale, rainbow chard, beets, fennel bulb, collard greens, romanesco greens, radishes, salad mix, culinary herbs, edible flowers & garnishes, and more!

We’ll also be digging into our archives and bringing along lots of artwork for those of you who want to get a headstart on holiday gift buying. We’ll have Brooke’s beautiful salad and herb posters, Caitlyn’s sticker sets and silkscreened farm posters, and if we can get it together in time, the new issue of our zine, Germination, hot off the press! We would very much appreciate seeing you and having you include our produce in your holiday menus, and our artwork on your gift-giving lists.

2) PREORDER salad mix, either for pickup at the market on Nov 15th*, OR for pickup at the farm on Tuesday Nov 20th (the week of Thanksgiving). It will be much easier for us to calculate how much salad to harvest (a time consuming task!) if we have an idea of how many people to harvest for. $10/bag, which will include our usual diverse, wildcrafted blend, plus some extra special flowers and flourishes for the holiday. It will be beautiful and incredibly tasty; just dress with olive oil and salt and you have an impressive ready-made side dish to feed your family and friends. We can accommodate the first 20 orders per pickup date. To preorder – send us an email (littlecitygardens @ gmail) with the subject “salad preorder”, the date you’d like to pickup (11/15 market, or 11/20 farm) and how many bags you’d like.

*Note: because our salad is harvested fresh and goes straight into your fridge the same day, we find it lasts quite a while. Bags purchased the day of the market will likely last through the following week into Thanksgiving Day, no problem.

We could very much use your support as we close out this long and winding year. The fields are full of greens, and they were grown just for you. Please tell your friends! We can’t wait to see you there!


Also, a side note: have you liked us on facebook? We like to post photos and videos there whenever we remember, and we’re hoping to get better at doing so more often this fall. It’s also come to our attention that facebook now asks businesses/organizations to pay for posts in order for them to be widely seen by followers. So, we’ve gone off the deep end and also started a Twitter. It’s an experiment. Please follow us there too! We’ll keep it exciting with sneak peeks of market goodies and snippets of life at the farm.

We hope this update finds you all well, enjoying these brighter mornings and longer evenings. We hope to see many of you on the 15th!
