Eat local, baby….
Rain or shine, the Farmers’ Market is open tomorrow for Wednesday Market, then Saturday as well… eat local! Here’s more from Lei:
The mid-week farmers’ market is still happening on Wednesdays at the lawn on Second Street, across from the Courthouse parking lot. One of the venders is Eliza Buck of Sowing Circle Gardens & Seeds.
Sowing Circle Gardens & Seeds offers vegetable, herb and flower plants and seeds at the mid-week farmer’s market. Eliza Buck and Dan Shelley started carving a garden out of woodland in the center of San Juan Island in 2003. Today, the diverse gardens include 24 varieties of fruit & nut trees, caneberries, strawberries and 40 blueberry bushes inner-woven with a series of raised beds to rotate crops of vegetables, herbs and flowers for harvest and for seed.
Currently, at Sowing Circle Gardens stand you will find “mini-gardens,” mid-summer starts, strawberries and garlic. In the coming weeks, look for winter starts and a variety of berries and plums.
Nootka Rose Farm will have zucchini, basil, broccoli, cauliflower, fava beans, sweet onions and more. Our bouquets of seasonal local flowers will liven up your house. Our flowers this week include lilies, dahlias, crocosmias, and sunflowers.
