We’ll be out on Broadway this Sunday, Feb. 3, from 11-noon, parked in front of the main entrance to Seattle Central Community College.Most of our leafy crops have bounced back from the freezing weather, and we have a limited supply of greens in addition to our carrots and parsnips.To pre-order, please send me an email. We will fill orders as they arrive, so the earlier you reply the better your chances of getting some kale!- Lacinato Kale $3/bunch- Red Russian Kale $3/bunch- Red Beets $3/bunch- Purple cabbage: Medium heads (~1 lb) $3, Large heads (~1.5 lb) $4- Brussels Sprouts $5/pound- Bolero carrots – large, sweet and very crunchy, best for long-term storage: $2/pound- Nelson carrots – our “standard” carrot that everyone loves. Very sweet, will keep for a few weeks in the fridge. $2/pound
- Parsnips – $3/pound - 5# for $12 – 10# for $20
