Produce for July 12 and 16, 2016

by | Jul 10, 2016 | 2016 Produce Update

If you visited the Garden last week you may have noticed how amazing the Swiss chard looks. It tastes just as amazing so it is featured in this week’s recipe. Additions to this week’s list include snow and sugar snap peas, basil and kohlrabi (limited supply). Reminder: Prior to Tuesday evening’s market there is a drop-in Nordic walking session starting at 6:00 p.m. (see poster for details).

The garden market is open: Tuesday, July 12, 2016 from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. And Saturday, July 16, 2016 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Regular market hours for the remainder of the summer will be: Tuesday evenings from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. and Saturdays from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

For those of you who haven’t visited the Garden before, we are located on the South Campus of the University of Alberta. Enter the University Farm off 60th Ave. Turn left at the T intersection (118th St) and you can’t miss it (we’re just across the road from the old barn). A map and further directions to the garden are available at: www.greengoldgarden.com/visit. See you at the market!
