Red potatoes have made their way into our market! It’s a special time of year when farmers first start digging young potatoes with peely skin. There are many uses for these potatoes, but most common this time of year is in a crawfish boil! Best part, they’re filled with vitamin C and vitamin B. Gather your potatoes at our market and throw them into the pot for a locally sourced boil.
