|Where we’ll be:
Pawtuxet Village Farmers Market
Thundermist West Warwick Farmers Market
What a difference a week makes! The end of last week was wet and cold (not fun) but this week has been sunny and warmer (yes!). Although the seasons are changing, there are still some great produce to harvest. Some of what we harvest goes right to market, while others, like Lemon Verbena, will first be dried and sold over the winter as tea. Here is a photo of what this herb looks like in the field.
According to the website NatureHacks, Lemon Verbena contains an essential oil that has anti-spasmodic, de-stressing and expectorant properties. It is often used to strengthen the nervous system, aid in digestive disorders, minimizes fevers and eases colon spasms.
This week we will be bringing the following items to market:
Bright Lights Swiss Chard
Green Bell Peppers
Red Ace Beets
Irish Cobbler Potatoes
Scratch Farm produce includes:
We will also be bringing a wide variety of culinary herbs and teas as well as Blue Skys’ beautiful flowers.

Hope to see you at the market!
