Doctor's Farm Market
Open Saturdays from 9-2 This week – Open Friday, 7/1 (Closed Saturday, 7/2)
Our newest attraction, the Doctor's Farm Market at Ethos Health, is now open to all. Market
hours are from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm each Saturday through the end of October (growing season
permitting). Come see our doctor and farmers and their nourishing, seasonal vegetables, fruits,
flowers and herbs for sale in the small barn.
Here's what's available right now
New Asian Greens:
Yokatta-Na - Use it either raw in salad mixes or cooked in stir-fries. The deep green tender
leaves, though flavorful, lack the mustard “bite” found in so many Asian greens. The deep
green tender leaves are flavorful and mild.
Braising Mix - Great for stir fry. This mix includes Green Mustard, Red Mustard, Kale,
Tatsoi, and Hon Tsai Tai.
Kale: Red Russian, White Russian
Dandelion greens: Garnet variety, bitter taste which mellows out when steamed or boiled
Collard greens: Vates – Heirloom variety – mild, cabbage like flavor
Assorted Lettuce heads: Pirat (red butterhead) and Buttercrunch (green butterhead) varieties, Red
Butterhead Lettuce: varieties have a smooth taste with a creamy texture
Swiss Chard: Bright Lights - Lightly savoyed, green or bronze leaves with stems of gold, pink,
orange, purple, red, and white with bright and pastel variations. Mild flavor.
And more – our farm always has some surprises in store!
