The first Tuesday market starts tomorrow at the Wil-Mar Center on Jenifer Street in Madison tomorrow night from 4-7. We will be taking rhubarb, asparagus,  lacinato kale, chard, green garlic, arugula, pea shoots, sage, thyme, spinach, cilantro, and maybe more. You better come and find out. Don't forget to vote!

Thanks to everyone that come out to see us at the market last week. We had fun meeting new members, chatting with past members, and seeing our regular customers. Thanks for making it possible for us to do what we do. We are not going to be at the Saturday market tomorrow. I saw a less than stellar weather report for the morning including really heavy winds and rain. We also have to get some more plants in the ground before the rain so that is what we will be doing today. 

The Tuesday Eastside Farmers' Market starts on May 8th at the Wil-Mar center on Jenifer Street, from 4-7 p.m. Hope to see you there. You can always find us at the Tuesday market once it starts. 

Have a great weekend.

Check out these stories and articles about why egg prices, especially organic, are much higher than conventional. I was also told once by an organic egg farmer that  if eggs were purchased by the lb. instead of per dozen, people probably wouldn't complain about paying $3-$5 for a dozen eggs, which is about a lb. of eggs. Plus, free range eggs have much more nutritional value than an egg from a chicken that is stuck in a cage for it's short life. The Mother Earth News article is great and the other one from Local Harvest helps explain what a grower ends up making after the chicken bills are paid.
