Farm Stand Closed for Season

Hi folks! We will be closing our farm stand for the season starting this weekend. We will however be at the Stafford and Ashford markets until the end of October, and the Storrs market through the winter. Thank you to everyone who came out to our stand on the weekends! Stay tuned for potential farm stand pre-orders and other announcements throughout the winter.

This weekend at our farmers’ markets (while they last): beets, carrots, baby lettuce, head lettuce, spicy salad mix, kale, swiss chard, tokyo bekana asian greens, spinach, salad turnips, purple top turnips (with greens), parsnips, and winter squash. NEW this weekend — our very own Spicy Baba Ganoush, made with Willow Valley Farm veggies by Doug at Dragon’s Blood Elixir! Thank you to those of you who responded to our survey about excess eggplant. We should also have some frozen eggplant for sale soon, once we figure out our labeling.
