It's April, the markets are beginning to do well. A wet winter, that seems to like to rain on market days. Glad the rain has died down. I want lots of rain... but on Monday's and Thursdays!
This past Sunday was our first Windsor Certified Farmers' Market of the year! A great start, and we're happy to be back!
Sonoma Valley Certified Farmers' Market (Friday Mornings, Year-round) is been great as always.
Wednesday Mornings in Santa Rosa are getting better every week. There's been quite a lunch crowd stopping by lately.
...and all will only get better with the addition of seasonal produce!
Very happy with our current batch of Roasted Beef, and Roasted Chicken Stocks!
All of our stocks are made with a combination of Leeks, Carrot, Celery, Onion, Fennel, Shiitake Mushroom, Cremini Mushroom, Bay Leaf, Parsley, & Thyme!
We have Green Garlic and Dill Quick Pickles!
What are Quick Pickles? Quick Pickles, also known as Refrigerator Pickles, are not fermented. We instead heat the brine, and then allow the warm brine to lightly break down the cucumbers before refrigerating. The result is a brighter & fresher pickle that's great as a snack.
We're ramping up for spring/summer at Physis Foods!
We started Windsor on Sundays a few weeks past. Cloverdale Tuesdays are back to being weekly (it's once a month in winter).
I saw some of the first local grown squash this season yesterday. We're now offering Zucchini & Green Garlic Soup (one of my favorites that also works great as a sauce) and Yellow Squash Soup (a lighter garlic free option). We've been making a Cabbage & Kale Coleslaw that has become a hit in Sonoma."
We started at the West End Farmers' Market last Sunday with a great response! Looking forward to returning this week!
Until April 6th, we will be making product ahead of market. After the 6th, we will be operating the Physis Foods mobile kitchen in Windsor, and making period trips between markets to refresh our offerings.
