Brickwall Farms will be back at our Tuesday market starting this week! Be sure to check out their amazing selection of lettuce including butter, red butter, oakleaf, and frisee. Don’t forget to try all their four kinds of basil (lemon, Italian, Thai, and pepper), spicy arugula, bok choy, Italian parsley, and more. We can’t wait to have them back!
