LITTLE FALLS, NJ - This Sunday, Snapping Turtle Farm is turning the farmers market green, with greens, fresh herbs and plants for your gardens.
Being strictly organic, everything from Snapping Turtle is grown right on their NJ farm - that means that everything they sell is seasonal to our area. Right now the market is producing lettuce, greens, and herbs. There are also radishes this week - add them to salads, julienne them to add to slaws, or eat with a bit of salt. Later in the season fruit and vegetables will be offered.
For the Sunday, June 21 market, look for:
Heads of green leaf lettuce
Red butter lettuce
Romain lettuce -loose leaf
Rainbow Swiss Chard
Red Mustard Greens
Flowering Bok Choy
They're also bringing herb plants for your gardens. Add them to your current herb garden, add an herb garden section to your vegetable garden, or grab a shovel and create a herb garden when you get home from the market.
This week, Snapping Turtle will offer the following plants for sale:
Holy basil / Tulsi plants
