West side residents may already be familiar with Farmer Doug and his red pickup truck selling fruit and vegetables at the shanghai parking lot on Saturday mornings. Best come exactly at 10am as he is often sold out by 10.15 or 10.30.
Starting today, he will also be offering just-picked fruits and veggies on Tuesdays, from 4 to 6. This second opportunity arises because of the abundance of produce at this harvest season, and because a number of Centretowners seem to own second homes and are out of town on the weekends.
Produce offerings include:
Fruit and veggies at the Shanghai Sat Aug 25 at 10 am. And Tues Aug 28 from 4 pm to 6 pm. Celery. Leeks. Cantalopes. Mild radish microgreens. Tomatoes. (Please contact Doug if you want some for processing.) Basil. Peppers. Some eggplant. Kale. Potatoes. Bulb onions. Green onions. Garlic. Lots of lettuce. Zucchini, tatume and patty pan. Carrots. Beets. Some beet greens. Swiss chard. Green beans (some yellow).
I will be bringing fresh produce from my farm Tuesdays from 4 to 6 at least until the Harvest Moon. Saturdays at 10 am, into November. Coming this fall: pac choi, tat soi, mizuna, spinach, Japanese turnips, cabbage, radish, arugula, cilantro, parsley, peas, squash, pumpkin, and more.
