Waverly Market report
Alan Morstein of Regi's sends this week's Waverly Farmers' Market report.
"Today at Waverly ... North Carolina plump strawberries in heavy supply. Robin Bartenfelder from Bartenfelder Farms expects her local crop of strawberries to be ready in two weeks from her main farm on the Eastern Shore.
"Local asparagus in thick and thin stalks, plenty of spring onions, leaf greens and rhubarb. The last week or so for watercress according to one local farmer. Flowering, fresh herb and vegetable plants seem to be taking center stage.
"The local growers seem very upbeat today in light of the beautiful weather we've had following the wet winter. Many growers are on their third planting in the field."
He was also looking forward to the opening of the downtown market next Sunday.
"Next week is show time under the JFX! It's not like the opening of baseball or football, but for a foodie it's pretty close."
