Sweet Potato Harvest Begins
Fall crops are starting to trickle in, making their debut at market this week! Yokna Bottoms sweet potato harvesting is in full swing. We’ve got Beauregard and Covington varieties:
Beauregard – Considered the world’s most popular sweet potato. Prized for reddish-purple skin and sweet, deep orange flesh that caramelizes nicely when baked. Stores exceptionally well.
Covington – Rosy-skinned with super sweet orange flesh, these are a favorite for roasting and mashing.
Also new this week:
Tasty, tender green onions!
…and these adorable Long Island Cheese pumpkins:
Named for their resemblance to wheels of cheese, this heirloom favorite features smooth, sweet flesh and is supposed to make killer pumpkin pies…We’re making one tonight. We’ll let know Saturday how it turns out!
See you Saturday at Midtown Market 7-11 a.m., Tuesday at OXCM 3-6:30 p.m., or back at Midtown Wednesday 8 a.m.-1 p.m.!
