About Celery

Celery has been a very successful crop for us this year but seems no one knows how to eat it, other than a stem to munch on. Well have I got news for you! Just in my inbox: a whole expose on celery. Here are some clips on it’s nutritional value.

Celery contains a welcome dose of some important vitamins and minerals. For example, a mere stalk of green celery can provide 25% of your daily vitamin K needs and 5% of your daily needs for vitamin A, folate, and potassium. In lesser amounts, you’ll find calcium, manganese, magnesium, phosphorus, and B vitamins. Celery is also full of fiber — around 1 gram per stalk. You’ve probably noticed if you’ve ever gotten fibrous celery strings stuck in your teeth. (Dental floss, anyone?!)

Not only is celery a good source of antioxidants and other healthy, disease-fighting plant compounds like phytonutrients and flavonoids, it’s also high in electrolytes. Electrolytes are chemicals in water that are essential for bodily functions like hydration, maintaining healthy blood pressure, repairing tissue damage, and helping your muscles and nerves work correctly.

There are many other ways to enjoy this unique and crunchy stalk vegetable, too.

Some of these include:

Chopping it up to use in warm soups Dicing it for use in an organic tofu scramble Slicing it thinly for salads and wraps Chopping it for chickpea salad sandwiches or potato salad Adding it to stir-fries Snacking on raw celery with almond, peanut, or cashew butter and sprinkling it with raisins or hemp seeds Adding it to smoothies

There are recipes too.
Farmers Market Smoothie
Cucumber, celery, squash, romaine lettuce, pineapple, and mint transform into a beautiful, bright green smoothie that is a delight for all your senses. Celery is fantastic for its electrolyte activity, making this an ideal beverage to hydrate and nourish your body. Also rich in vitamin K, vitamin A, folate, and potassium (thanks again, celery) this is a refreshing and wholesome plant-based smoothie option.
Eggs are on special, three dozen for price of two, while they last. For LG that works out to $5/dozen.

Healthy eating,
Ian and Cami and now Lauren too!

Champaign, OH:  The Race Is On

Now the race is on and here comes pride up the back stretch,
Heartaches a goin’ to the inside, my tears are holding back, tryin’ not to fall.

And, while there is no heartache at the market, the race really is on to get those orders in by 8am, this morning!!

Will you be joining me as I race, as well, per usual, to get my own orders in before closing time?

Yalaha, FL:  Still Summer but I do have the Micros and Shoots.

Market Open But we have only limited stuff in summer.

I Did Create a Fish Camp Shoots and Micros Mix because we have had a request from a customer to be able to get the stuff to make their own salad like Fish Camp does. So Look for that. The summer mix is pretty much just Buckwheat shoots (with hulls sometimes) Pea Shoots, and Radish Microgreens. Fish camp adds this to lettuce the bring in from elsewhere during summer when it is impossible to grow outdoors locally.

If anyone wants Regular Chives, I have those as well as little chive seedlings available. If there is demand I can list them for you. Also available but not listed are Dill seedlings and curly Parsley seedlings.

The regular ordering window is now through Thursday 8am for Friday-Sunday pickup.

I may still be able to take orders after Thursday Morning but can’t guarantee availability of things as I may have already packed them for the Restaurants.
Ordering window is Monday Afternoon (or when I open it) through Thursday Morning and pick up will be Friday-Sunday by appointment until we expand more, Please indicate when you would like to pick up when you place your order.

Remember to tell me when you want to pick up! (and if I don’t reply to confirm within a day, bump my e-mail or text me 407-342-8515. Though I have cleaned up my e-mail so hopefully I won’t Miss Anyone.)

Sign in to order.

You have to sign in to see the add to cart button. Then set the number and click the add to cart button on the items you want to buy (it is the little picture right next to the quantity box.) Remember you need to check out before your order will be placed.
Remember to let me know when you want to pick up on Sat or maybe even Friday late afternoon or on Sunday. (If I don’t send you an e-mail confirmation of your order and pick up time, please make sure you checked out and completed your order.)
