Waverly Market report
Alan Morstein of Regi's sends this week's dispatch from Waverly Market. Here's Alan. LV
No window shoppers today at Waverly. Everyone is carrying bags and the lot was full when I left at 7:30.
Today's features included local strawberries, rhubarb, all varieties of lettuce, asparagus (which has dropped in price as yields increase), plenty of fresh-cut flowers, potted flowers, potted vegetables and herbs.
New on the scene this week: green beans from Georgia and, just in time for that Mother's Day cook-out, sweet white corn from Florida (2 ears for 1.00). It's worth the trip to the market for the sweet corn alone.
Next week Martin Farms predicts arrival of local mixed field greens, a popular salad lettuce.
