We still have CSA shares available for the 2019-2020 season! Know your farmer, feed yourself well, contribute to your community in all these ways!

This drawing is so great! I'd love it on wallpaper. (And credit to Phoebe Wahl for the beautiful work!)

There are so many reasons I think it's important to support local farmers (not just because I am one, we also buy from other local farmers who grow things we don't).

I actually think it can be summed up in the 4 principles of Organic: Ecology, Health, Fairness, and Care.

As farmers who sell directly to our customers, we can talk about and share stories of the ways both ends of this (very short) food chain express our values.

We can share the ways we honour our local ecology and we can hear how our customers' expectations are aligned or other expectations they have of us.

We take steps to ensure that we're always contributing to our customers' health and hear their health needs and see the benefits directly before us.

We can ask for a fair price (the price we need to continue growing) and experience our customers' trust in us and their response that it is also a fair price for them.

We can showcase our care for them, the wider community (including those who will never be our customers) and all the other species we share this earth with through honouring our collective resources (soil, water, air, biodiversity) and working to improve their health and balance.

All of this is so much easier to do when none of us are nameless and faceless in each other's lives.

Sauteed Kale with Garlic and Lemon

It's kale week at the Common Ground Market! We'll post some of our favorite kale recipes every day this week to inspire you, and have two types of tender, delicious kale at the market -- traditional curly, and the beautiful deep-blue Tuscan (also sometimes called "dinosaur" kale).

This is one of our favorite very simple kale side recipes. You can make it with garlic scapes, which will also be featured at the market this week! Hope to see you there! How do YOU like to use kale?

Par-boiling and sauteing kale makes it tender and delicious.

Good morning, and happy Market day!

The strawberries have been getting a lot of love lately.... and the kale? The kale is feeling a bit left out. Call us crazy, but we feel positively evangelical about this dark leafy green. We’ll have beautiful fresh kale at the market today next to the strawberries. Right there in all its nutritious glory, filled with iron, fiber, Vitamin A and Vitamin K! To know kale is to love kale, and this recipe is an easy peasy introduction. We threw some strawberries in for good measure.

See you soon...

We’re not trying to discourage you from making your favorite strawberry scones, hand pies, or icebox cake... we’re simply suggesting that absolutely everything is better with the first strawberries of summer!

What are you making this week after you stop by The Common Ground Market tomorrow?

You are a few muddled strawberries, a sparkly kicky black pepper simple syrup, some lime juice, and white tequila away from holiday weekend bliss, aka my forever favorite late May/early June cocktail of all time. I hope it becomes yours too.
