Come and visit us this weekend:
Pawtucket Wintertime Farmers Market
Hope Artiste Village
1005 Main St., Pawtucket
Here’s what we’ll have for you:
Ruby Streaks Mizuna
Red Bordeaux Spinach
Dried Culinary Herbs
…with additional items from our fellow Urban Edge farms: Scratch Farm, Zephyr Farm, and Pak Express Farm.
It’s been a quiet month here at Blue Skys Farm. But we’re starting to look toward the coming spring! Deciding what we’ll grow, ordering seeds, figuring out our sales plan, that sort of thing. We turn the heat on in the greenhouse on March 1, and we’ll start seeding then. We also need to order lumber to finish up the newest high tunnel, which will be done sometime in March, depending on the weather.
As always, this summer we’ll be selling at the Pawtuxet Village Farmer’s Market (which will have a new web site soon!). Also as always, we’ll be doing a CSA—which will be different this year! Stay tuned for an official announcement…
Get Free Tomatoes
Hi folks! I would like to take the time to thank you for buying local and supporting your farmers market.
Over the past few years however, sales have been steady, but have not increased. I think the market is finally saturated.
So, I’d like to challenge you to encourage people in your world who have never shopped at a farmers market, or only rarely shop at farmers markets, to do so; maybe you can even bring them!
Here’s an incentive: Bring a friend to the market starting January 28 through the end of February, and introduce them to me. I’d love to chat with them about our farm and what we offer. If they buy something, I will give you 2 FREE POUNDS of tomatoes in August! MMMM… can’t wait for those delicious, juicy, melt-in-your-mouth beauties!
