New Field Farm's Online Market: Carrots and garlic
New this week are carrots and garlic. We pulled some garlic fresh from the ground just before going to market today. The bulbs are looking beautiful with many being a good size. And very pungent! This is the 22nd year we’ve been growing it out from our own stock.
As it says on the site the garlic is $9/lb, but since most people only want one or two bulbs at a time we offer them for $1.50 each and then adjust the price up or down for each bulb according to weight. The actual price appears on your invoice.
Chioggia and golden beets are back. We’re in an arugula gap. We plant every week, but missed a week due to rain. Peas are over for the season. The red potatoes are as scab-free as I’ve ever seen them. Hopefully, they’ll stay that way, and the other varieties as well.
The first cucumber planting didn’t appreciate the recent rains and humidity, but should produce enough to provide for another couple of weeks. And then the second planting should begin to bear.
The bull’s horn peppers are now offered. At this point they’re just like a regular green bell pepper, only a different shape. Later they’ll start turning red and sweeter which is when they’re most popular.
A few eggplant are ready. For various reasons the plants are growing slowly.
We continue to plant and weed, plant and weed. All that begins to let up next month.
Thank you as ever for all your orders.

ALFN Local Food Club: Market Reminder!
I’m often asked by new and potential members why we have a membership fee, and where that money goes. As a nonprofit organization, we strive to be upfront about what we charge and why. Our fee structure is explained in brief on our Welcome page and Q’s and A’s page of The Market, but we’re always happy to provide more information.
Essentially, the membership fee is what allows us to function differently than a traditional farmers’ market and provide our members with additional benefits. You can browse and order ahead of time from the convenience of your home or office, even research growers or products and ask us questions during the week. You can sleep in on Saturdays knowing that you won’t miss out on the best fruits and veggies. You can pick up your order while enjoying the comfort of air conditioning in the summer, heat in the winter and stay dry in rainy weather. You can set up your orders to be automatically charged to a credit or debit card. If Saturday’s don’t work for you or your plans go awry, we also offer a Monday evening pick up. We generally have 20-30 growers and artisans with active listings at any given time, even in the middle of winter, and are able to offer products from wholesale vendors who don’t participate in open air markets.
In order to provide you with all of these benefits, we incur more overhead than a conventional farmers’ market. We pay the locallygrown website 3.25% of total sales. We pay rent for our office and kitchen space. We pay for the purchase and maintenance of our appliances and Health Department licensure of our space and practices. We also pay for supplies (paper, printer cartridges, etc.), staff and administration, and snacks and coffee for our volunteers.
We feel that all we do is well worth the membership fee, but we also understand that $60 can be a lot to pay all at once. The website automatically charges the full amount every time membership is due, but we’re happy to let our members pay in increments as small as $5 monthly. Just let us know in your order comments or when checking out and we’ll make the adjustment to your total. We also offer members who volunteer to help out at pick up a $5 credit which can be applied to membership. If you have a few hours to spare one Saturday morning each month, you can enjoy all the conveniences we provide for free!
So start making the most of your membership by ordering each and every week before The Market closes on Wednesday morning at 7:30.
