Organic produce at Louisville Farmer's Markets this weekend!
The summer bounty of local, organic produce continues. We invite to come the the St. Matthew's Farmer's Market from 8:00-noon tomorrow (Saturday, July 19, 2014) to see what Harmony Fields Farm is offering. Squash and Zucchini are plentiful this time of year. Local and organic is much harder to find. Unless you come see us.
You will also find produce not available anywhere else. Ronde de Nice Zucchini is from the south of France but it is found south of the Ohio River this week. Will not find this in the grocery. Not even the fancy, expensive ones.
Same applies to the Boothby Blond cucumber. Milder and sweeter that the traditional green cucumbers, this one is wonderful in salads or pickled.
A new study, just published in the British Journal of Nutrition, extols the nutritional benefits of organic food. They really emphasize the increased level of antioxidants in organic food. Check it out at organic-center.org. We have noticed that other studies have emphasized the importance of color. We will have beautiful purple potatoes this week. Flavorful and nutritious.
We will also be at Rainbow Blossom (Lexington Rd. location, in St. Matthew's) on Sunday, July 20 from noon till 4:00 p.m. as a part of their weekly Farmer's Market.
Please come see us. We are your source for local, organic produce.
