The Farm Dirt

News from Bartlett's Farm

Open Every Day 8-7

Happy Independence Day!

It's that time of year when every day brings something new to the market! We started picking field flowers a few days ago, and while the early morning rain blast knocked some down, they will be back and better by tomorrow.

Sugar Snap Peas are being picked, and there's a HUGE crop of shelling peas just waiting for a few days of sun to finish ripening them. The squashes are perfect for grilling this weekend, too.

Mj's kitchen crew made the first farm-grown, farm-made gazpacho last weekend, and they plan on having it available every weekend. The Farm-Grown and Farm-Made labels are put on items in the market to let you know that those products are the finest you can buy. One farm label is very good. But when a product (like the gazpacho) carries both labels, that is a special treat. Look for more farm-grown, farm-made salads and 'to-go' foods in the kitchen counter as more produce is harvested.

For lunch, you can get a Farm-Philly Cheesesteak, or a freshly grilled burger to go!
There are plenty of 'grab-n-go' sandwiches and beach food in the case around the corner from the kitchen counter.

Just in time for grilling this weekend, in the meat case you can find 4-packs of
Bartlett's Blend Burgers.
These 1/2 pound burgers are specially blended for us with a combination of ground chuck and brisket. Rich, our Grocery Manager, says they're the best burgers he's ever tasted.

Red, white and blue abounds in the market...from combination packs of red, white and blue potatoes to checkered table cloths, napkins and other table decorations.
