Radishes are Back! 

It's been a while, but radishes have made a return to the winter Market! Everyone is familiar with this root vegetable that was originally domesticated in Asia. Radishes are an excellent source of fiber, vitamin C, folic acid and potassium. In fact, just one cup of sliced radishes has 22% of the required daily vitamin C intake. Radishes are also used as a remedy for stomach and intestinal disorders, fever, colds and coughs. And, radishes have just 1 c...

When I moved to Ohio, someone shared the saying with me, "If you don't like the weather, just wait a minute." Last Saturday, we enjoyed spring-like temperatures near 70. And, this

Say, "Yes!" to Cress!

January is a great time to experiment with the many greens available from our farmers. One green find is cress (or land cress), a plant with small leaves and a peppery, spicy bold flavor.

You can find cress at Jorgensen Farms, and they'll be happy to give you a free taste!

The following producers expect to h...
