Unique Farmers on the Market

The folks at Good Eggs introduced us to some interesting produce that they sell through their local farmers who specialize in amazing fruits and veggies! Donut Peach, anyone?

Husk Cherries

Husk Cherries

Mother Nature's answer to Skittles! This cousin of the tomatillo has a papery husk that you can peel back to unlock a tropical-tasting orange fruit. Just pop 'em and enjoy!

Great for fresh eating, salads, and salsas like this one.

All the sweetness of a donut in a flat, saucer-shaped peach. These are as cute as they are delicious. Sweet, and crisp, they are the perfect after-school snack.

Fairy Tale Eggplant

Fairy Tale Eggplant

Naturally petite and visually-stunning purple eggplants have fewer seeds and thinner skin than the bigger eggplants you're used to eating.

Use them as the base for a Fairy Tale Eggplant Parmigiana.

“The flavor is incredible. It’s like a 5-year old kid running around like crazy because they are so full of energy. Microgreens are no different. They’re like little kids booming and pushing through.”

Listen as Brendan Davison, founder and grower at Good Water Farms explains the magic of microgreens.

Purple Potatoes

Purple Potatoes

Blue beauties that are bright inside and out and can be cooked like any other potato. Mix them with yellow potatoes for color or go bold and stay purple!

Whip up some purple gnocchi using these colorful potatoes.
