During this peak season at Rudy’s Happy Patch Market, manager Kelly Jansen fields many customer requests for particular produce. Along with other market staff, Kelly ensures that most requests are met, through identifying vendors who can provide farm-to-table vegetables for customers.
While a few items are not available locally, most market produce is grown by area farmers. Last week, for example, both yellow and green zucchini squash were delivered by Jim Buchanan of Buchanan Farms. To meet customer demand for tomato variety, Jensen Farms delivered yellow tomatoes, clementine tomatoes, and the highly requested heirloom variety. (BTW, the price for these new offerings is $2.50 per pound.)
Seeing is believing, so check out some of the latest deliveries from Buchanan Farms and Jensen Farms, and bring some color, good health, and good eating, to your dinner table!
