May 14th is Three Market Saturday

You can find us at three Saturday farmers markets starting May 14th. All three go from 9 am to 1 pm, but be sure to arrive by 10:30 a.m. for the best selection. You can find us at the downtown Austin Farmers Market, the Cedar Park Farms to Market at Lakeline Mall, and back again at Sunset Valley Farmers Market, We’ll be bringing gorgeous red turnips like those pictured below, as well as our wildly beautiful Tecolote “Fiesta Beets”~ a riotous color splash of golden, blood red and hot pink Chioggia beets in mixed bunches. Salad mixes and large leafy greens are still here- enjoy them before the summer devours their splendour!

In addition to beets, turnips, watermelon radishes, DAIKON radishes, escarole, radicchio, flat-leaf parsley and lots of leafy greens, we are still selling some of our hand-drilled birdhouse gourds. If you’d like to pre-order some of these lovely garden adornments or would prefer some gourds without amendments, email us at the farm at tecolotefarm at g mail dot com and we’ll set some aside for you.  Lebanese summer squash are coming in like wildfire, and they are super tasty in all their thin-skinned flavor. Our friend Emmett Fox at Asti likes to slice them thinly on a mandolin, long-ways, and dress them a ricotta salata, lemon, oil, and basil-mint drizzle. Simply divine.

Please come find us at a market this coming Saturday! We’d love to share the freshness of the garden with you.
