The Carlton County Farmers Market in Cloquet, that is. I’m planning to be there most Saturdays from 9 am – noon, if the weather’s decent. We set up in the parking lot near Premiere Theatres, which is off of Highway 33, so you can’t miss us. This week I’m bringing broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, a little spinach, some beet greens, salad turnips, radishes, kale, head lettuce, and scallions. Come early for the best selection, but don’t hesitate to stop by later, either!

The other vendors have a lot of goodies I can’t resist, like homemade bread, cookies, jam, and fresh eggs, plus meat if you don’t already have a freezer full like I do. This Saturday there’s some sort of kids’ activity planned during market hours, and kids can always hunt for the Market Mouse (a great idea if I ever heard one!). Next Saturday, July 15th, stop by for a delicious demonstration in memory of Emma Olson, The Bread Lady. It’ll feature Emma’s Finnish cardamom bread as well as bread from bakers Elizabeth Naglak and Terry Sharkey, plus jams and jellies made by farmers market members. Hope to see you there!

It’s CSA Day!

Every day is CSA day in my world, but … Small Farm Central organizes a more official CSA Day each year to promote CSA sign ups, and today’s the day.

Our local twist on CSA Sign Up Day is the CSA Guild’s Local CSA Farm Open House on Sunday, March 19, 2017, 2-5 pm at Clyde Iron. If you’d like to meet the people who will be growing your food for this season, this is your opportunity to interview the contestants — er, farmers– face to face. Or, you can quietly gather business cards and then order a beer. It’s up to you.

One more date to make note of if you’re considering Stone’s Throw Farm CSA: March 15 is the deadline for our wildly popular Early Bird Discount. Sign up or just check out the details here.

We had a good turnout at the Local CSA Farm Open House on Friday — the first official day of spring. It was especially nice to see a few of our dedicated customers who stopped by to say hi. We picked up some new members but still have 6 Stone’s Throw Farm CSA shares available, so if you’re still shopping for a CSA, check out our share options on our online sign-up form. If you have any questions, just let me know. Thanks! I’ll post something here when we’re sold out of shares.
