Here's our list for this week:Fruits:Three varieties of Asian Pears: Ya Li, Shin Li and Shinko. Persimmons, avocados and a few delicious but tiny Meyer lemons that were hiding near the tree trunks. The lemons are so small and dark yellow that if you do pay attentions they look like Mandarins! Vegetables:Broccoli Rabe (broccolini), Romaine Lettuce, Red Leaf Lettuce, lots of red scallions and cilantro on the root, two green onion bunches, organic celeries, beets, red potatoes, big baking potatoes, sweet potatoes and garnet yams, yellow onions, acorn and butternut squashes. Nuts:Walnuts and Pecans from the groves in Winters.
Vendors will provide: Fresh Produce, Fruits, Nuts, and Crafts.
The market will be inside the Garden Shop Nursery and is from 10am to 2pm on Sundays all fall and winter long!

This is a very awesome market to attend for a few reasons. For one thing the prices are reasonable. The produce is some of the the best you've had. It's fresh. While not certified it is organic. The farmers are honest about taste, quality and selection. They sample what they sell. They advise you on storage and preparation. I cannot say enough good things about this market. In supporting it you offer proof that even in a cold climate like Reno people need not be dependent on the tasteless produce at the supermarket. You support small farmers instead of huge corporations. The energy in this food is positive and is more nourishing for you, your family and the world.
