Dawson Local Harvest for December 14th

The Holiday Harvest is Here!

HI EVERYBODY

Updates for This Week’s Market: BACK IN TIME FARM has added a Chicken Broth made from their Certified Naturally Grown birds which is a perfect start for soups, gravies, etc. It joins their Chicken Breasts, Wings, and Chicken Skins (yes, you read that right) which fried are apparently the rage now (like pork rinds?). They are all on the Meats listing. Vegetable-wise The Market has a variety of Lettuces and Salad Mix, plus Kale, Turnip Greens, and Bok Choi. Several varieties of delicious, crunchy Radishes and Turnips are also available.

Don’t forget our amazing Yeast Rolls and Challah to finish off your main courses. Holiday Dessert specialties include Eggnog poundcake with Streusel, Chocolate Gingerbread cookies, and White Chocolate Raspberry Muffins, but MY DAILY BREAD has plenty more to choose from. Entertaining? Look at the Cookie Platters in Fresh Bakery and the Cheese Dips under Salads, Cheese Dips, & More.

How about an Unusual Gift at a Great Value? The Market has a wider choice than you might think, from all-natural Bath & Beauty products, to Organic Jams & Jellieslike Hot Pepper Peach Jam, to Fermented Goodies like Ginger Turmeric Sauerkraut and Garlic Dill Pickles

Take a few minutes to browse through some of the product categories you usually overlook and you’ll find some great Gift Ideas hiding there!

Dawson Harvest for November 30th

JUST ADDED! TOMATOES and New HOLIDAY DESSERTS!

TOMATOES? I know, sounds crazy. We did an experiment with Tomatoes in the new High Tunnel hoophouse, and we got some! There’s about 3 orders of ripe Assorted Heirlooms plus Green Tomatoes for frying, in Vegetables.

MY DAILY BREAD also jus added delicious New HOLIDAY DESSERTS. My favorite (just barely) are yummy White Chocolate Raspberry Muffins, just edging out the Eggnog Pound Cake with Streusel, but the bakers really like the Chocolate Gingerbread Cookies! You’ll find them in Fresh Bakery.

YOU CAN ORDER THESE, the Tomatoes, and all the other Veggies, Beef, Milk, Chicken, Eggs, Yeast Rolls, and more until 9 pm TONIGHT!

On the Vegetable side, crisp Lettuce Mix is abundant, and so is Large Leaf Kale, and Pak Choi is also ready for your stir-fry. In Radishes we’ve got beautiful white ‘Icicle’ Radishes, along with the small crunchy Reds. And how about a mess o’ Greens, as in Turnip Greens, along with both white Hakurei and purple-top Turnips. And finally fresh-picked organic Green Tomatoes!

And you can add tasty variety to your dinner table with CULTURED TRADITIONS yummy and healthy offerings like Fermented Okra, Coconut Kefir, Fermented Cherry Tomatoes, Sauerkrauts, and more, in the Fermented / Probiotic listings.
