PORK THIS WEEK!
We are delayed in posting all the pork that is available this week. I will have it posted by Tuesday night and send out a blast to all who have already ordered. Perhaps you’ll want mouth watering chops for Christmas Eve?
LAST MARKET WEEK OF 2014
Please order this week for all your Holiday dining needs. Spaghetti squash, red AND white potatoes, green beans, all types of kales and mustards, tomatoes, lettuces, turnips, shallots, ginger, garlic, apples, pears, and STRAWBERRIES. Not to mention all the fabulous Asian greens and Chinese cabbage varieties now available. Don’t miss your chance to stock up!
We will be closed the weeks of Christmas and New Years. We will re-open to take your orders on Jan. 5th. This calendar shows all the “green” weeks that our Market will be open in 2015. Suggest that you save the link as a favorite!

WELCOME TO OUR NEWEST CUSTOMERS
Once you have submitted your order, if in doubt about what you owe, you can always confirm what you have been charged for by checking your account history and viewing your most current invoice. Instructions on how to do that are on our Q&A page under the question entitled Since you don’t provide an invoice with delivery, how do I know what I owe? Also, since your vegetables are picked fresh within 24 hours of delivery, they should be lasting for WEEKS in your refrigerator. When you accept delivery, please take a few minutes to inspect your order to protect your vegetables from unnecessary spoilage. Lastly, it is imperative that you understand our policy on Unclaimed Orders found on our Q&A page. When you make a purchase you are agreeing to abide by this policy.
Our Market has high standards for what it sells. Despite that—as seasons transition—the challenges of evolving weather and pesky insects can take its toll on the crops. Market Growers are being very selective about what they are willing to present to you. No, it won’t always be picture perfect (which is part of its charm) and sometimes an insect is going to evade capture! But we won’t send you anything that we wouldn’t eat ourselves. If for any reason we have goofed and you are dissatisfied, please report it to me right away so we can rectify the situation. That’s how we get better and we all benefit from that. Your satisfaction is key to our success as a resource for St. Petersburgs’ lovers of chemical-free, organically & locally grown vegetables.
