Instead of just having one day of plant sales here at the farm, we’ve decided to have several days with open hours during these next couple weeks before market starts. If you’re out and about and in need of some plants, stop by during the hours listed below. And for taking the time to drive out here, we’ll be offering a 15% discount on all plant sales here at the farm.

Friday, April 19th from 1:00-6:00 pm

Saturday, April 20th from 2:00-6:00 pm

Tuesday, April 23rd from 1:00-6:00 pm

Friday, April 26th from 1:00-6:00 pm

If you can’t make it to the farm you can find us at the following 2 events in April.

Earth Day– Sunday, April 21st from 12-4 pm at Antelope Park

Natures Market-Saturday, April 27th from 10:00 am-3:00 pm at Pioneers Park

After these events we will be at the Haymarket Farmers Market at 7th and P every Saturday morning, 8-noon, starting May 4th and running through the second Saturday in October.

Hope to see you at one of these!

Why we do farmers markets

It’s that time of the year again…we’re dusting off the EZ ups, digging out the cash box, making new signs, cleaning out the vans, and  making sure that everything is in place for that first market of the season. Our 18th season to be exact.

Sometimes we ask ourselves why we choose to sell our products this way. It is, after all, a whole lot of work. Weather doesn’t always cooperate (think radish icicles and red noses!), Saturday mornings come WAY to early and big old clunky vans tend to break down.

Each year, usually during the brutal days of August, we wonder if there might be an easier way to do this but we always come up with the same answer. How could we NOT get to see all our wonderful customers again? Our customers who have become like family over the years.

So yes, even though we may look a bit bedraggled, we’ll be there, bright and early Saturday morning, anxiously waiting to reconnect with some of our favorite people!

Hope to see you there!!
