Pick of the Week:
Farm tech!

This time of year, tomatoes, cucumbers, and peppers are all grown hydroponically. Normally, the field grown varieties can only be found spring, fall and summer. Technology is really extending our local season! Questions about hydroponic farming? Ask our vendors or market staff!
