farmers-market-sign-2Fall is here… along with that comes a change in the produce.  It’s time for all the great fall squashes ~ acorn, butternut, buttercup and spaghetti. Sweet potatoes have been dug and are ready for your favorite recipes. Apples are available as well… Golden Delicious, Johnathon and Mutzu this week.

We hope to have broccoli again this week, with more coming along with cauliflower after Harvest Homecoming. “White Lady” sweet turnips, mustard greens, brazing greens and some baby lettuce will also be available. Come early for your supply…they are sure to sell out quick.

We are beginning to see the end of our summer produce, so our availability will become much less. Kenny still has tomatoes… hopefully for a few more weeks. We also have kale, cabbage, red potatoes, beets, zucchini, summer squash, cucumbers, bell peppers, and candy onions.  Kenny still has more of his many different hot peppers.

As the harvest season winds down, we have decided to discontinue our “Basket of the Week” program for the year. We will however still offer pre-orders as usual. We look forward to offering them again next season. A huge thank you to all those who participated this year!

We’ll have more farm-fresh, free-range eggs at the market. Just a reminder that we have been selling out early each week… so come early or pre-order to make sure you get the items you need.

Thanks for supporting us with your purchases. Have a great week, hope to see you on Saturday.

moon-and-barnThe days are growing shorter, the angle of the sun is waning, and school is back in session….it’s September!
This is a busy time of year at Russell Veggies, there is much work to be done as we begin to wrap up the growing season.  Frost typically hits during the first week of October, and during September the name of the game is harvesting, seed saving, and prepping beds for winter.
This being said, we will be discontinuing our weekly “growers choice baskets”. Our final basket offering will be on September 24th, however we will continue to take pre-order thru our regular market days ending in October.
It’s been a great season for our baskets and we appreciate each of you that took advantage of this program. As in the past we plan on offering this service again in the spring of next year.
Thanks again for all your continued support of Russell Veggies,
Val & Kenny

RecycleIt’s that time of year again, our season is winding down. We are rounding up all our basket, bags and containers that may be cluttering up your homes and garages.  If you have any of our recyclables please bring them to the market, we would be more than happy to receive them and reuse for our next season.

We hope to continue our basket program next season, so it helps to have our baskets returned to do so.  If you have one or two laying around we would much appreciate them being returned. It seems that our smaller baskets are not being returned to recycle and they are our most expensive to purchase and ship.

We appreciate your business and look forward every year to providing you with the best quality products available.

Thanks in advance for helping us Reuse, Reduce and Recycle,

Val & Kenny

Winter squashes are ready, we will have butternut, acorn and spaghetti this week and buttercups in a few more weeks.  Sweet potatoes are being dug and are looking really good, we will have some available this week.

Apples are ready, I have started picking now… Gala ‘s and Johnathan’s  will be the first available. The Mutzu  are still a couple of weeks away.

Join the New Albany Farmers Market Saturday August 27th as we celebrate tomato season and all the yumminess that comes along with it.  What yumminess you ask?

Start with 10 Amazing Farms growing all varieties of tomatoes, add in a little basil (from other astounding farmers), olive oil and balsamic vinegars (from 2 awesome vendors), and don’t forget the cheese (from 3 more incredible vendors)!  Sounds like a party doesn’t it!

From 9 to 10:15 am we will offer tastes of all the tomato types available to us.  We ask that you mark our sheet with your feedback.  The “gourmet” taste which includes cheese, basil, olive oil, balsamic vinegar and surprise veggies will be the reward for each person joining us. 

Please join us for this fun filled day, and check out our special “tasting tables” from Green Earth Outfitters.
