Market News

WELCOME CLEMSON USLG CUSTOMERS
We’re greener, we’re leaner, and CLG is better than you’ve ever seen ’er!

We hope you’ve been enjoying the cooler weather as much as we have! The next Clemson Drop will be THIS Wednesday, Oct. 31, 2012 at the Clemson Montessori School. from 4:30-5 p.m.

New this week! Spurgeon Farm has added broccoli, arugula, boc choy, and tsot soi. “What is tsot soi?” you ask. Tsot soi is an extremely cold- tolerant member of the Brassica family. It hails from Asia and can reportedly be harvested even from under snow! (Not that WE will have that problem.) It can be steamed or stir-fried and complements fish and chicken dishes, especially those with an Asian flavor. I suggest sauteeing with plenty of garlic and ginger in some olive oil mixed with toasted sesame oil. YUM!

In addition to your order of Putney Farm Eggs, Nature’s Beef, Welch & Son sausage and chicken, Happy Cow milk products, Swamp Rabbit Cafe baked goods, and more, be sure to click on vegetables on the left-hand navigation bar of our market page and spend some time browsing veggies. More greens and other fall vegetables will be available in the coming weeks.
