Saying Goodbye to Glover Park Farmers Market

Glover Sometimes we have to make the hard decision to leave a farmers market. We don't take the decision lightly, because we've grown to love the customers who shop with us each week. But when evaluating our market schedule from a business standpoint, there are times when we realize that we don't have the capacity to continue to serve a market. So we were pretty sad to make the decision not to return to the Glover Park market this year. We've come to the conclusion that the market can realistically only financially support one fruit vendor, and Spring Valley has attended the market since its early stages. Thank you to the all the loyal Glover Park customers who shopped with us over the past two years; we will miss you! And we hope that we might see some of you at the Palisades farmers market on Sundays - which is only about a 10 minute drive from Glover Park!

For quick access to our recipes, we've added a recipe icon at the top of the eNewsletter to link you directly to our recipes.

Crop 101: Rhubarb

SAMSUNG Rhubarb is a vegetable that is usually used like a fruit and seldom eaten raw.  It is excellent in desserts such as pies, crisps, crumbles, breads, sauces and jams.  Rhubarb has a lemony semi-bitter flavor that is usually balanced out with the use of sugar or a sweet fruit, such as strawberries. Rhubarb stalks look similar to celery, but they grow individually from the ground, and not in a bunch.  Rhubarb stalks can be any color from green to pink to dark red.  It is a common misnomer that the redder rhubarb stalks are “riper” or better to eat.  There are several varieties of rhubarb, each with a different color.  Although the red stalks do have a very pretty color, it is not an indication of superior flavor or ripeness. Did you know that the leaves of the rhubarb plant are poisonous?  So you should never eat them! We have 4 different rhubarb patches of varying ages to ensure that we have plenty of rhubarb to supply all of our farmers markets.  We begin harvest of rhubarb as soon as it grows large enough in the spring, generally by the beginning of May.  We will continue to harvest rhubarb for 5 to 6 Read More...
