Celtuce was available at Silverthorn Farm last Saturday.

Garlic scapes, celtuce (aka celery lettuce), tomatoes, and chestnut mushrooms were new last week. Expect to see lots more broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini, radishes, cucumbers, and kale

  • Celtuce, also called stem lettuce, celery lettuce, asparagus lettuce, or Chinese lettuce, is a cultivar of lettuce. Silverthorn Farm had it last week.
  • Another new item was the Chestnut Mushrooms at Freedom Valley Farm. They have a a lovely yellow brown color and a nutty flavor.
  • Of course, we know garlic scapes are wonderful, but their season is brief, so now that they have shown up, you should get them and use them while you can.
  • Tomato season on the other hand is generally a long and delicious one. The first tomatoes showed up this past Saturday at two different vendors. We expect to see lots more in the coming months.
  • The little heads of cauliflower we saw the previous week turned into regular sized heads and lovely heads of broccoli were available too.
  • I also saw additional varieties of kale and more kale than previously along with a lot more zucchini than had been available so far this season.

It’s Week #3 of the month, so we have 3-in-1 Restaurant, BooYah Shrubs, Circle City Smoke, Guacamole & More, Hickory Valley Farm, Hidden Pond Farm, and Pet Wants Indy joining us this coming Saturday.

Fields Farm Fresh, Compean & Sons, and Funny Bone Farm will all be back after being out last week.

Hole Pottery and Nicey Treat will be out this Saturday (at the Talbot Street Art Fair).
