This idea has been rolling around in my head for quite some time now, and I’m excited to finally introduce it to you all: Fairydiddle Forage Baskets! For those of you who can’t make it to the New Market Farmer’s Market on Friday afternoons but still live nearby, Fairydiddle Forage Baskets offer a way for you to get fresh, sustainably raised food from Fairydiddle Farm every week, June through September.

Much like with a CSA program, subscribers will pay a lump sum at the beginning of the season and then pick up a basket of food each Wednesday evening from a designated pickup location in Broadway. These baskets will contain fresh, seasonal vegetables and herbs from Fairydiddle Farm, as well as a dozen free-range eggs from a nearby farm.

The first pickup date will be June 2, and space is limited, so purchase your subscription soon!

While the other details have mostly been nailed down, I am still finalizing the specific pickup location within Broadway. I will update the product description and notify any subscribers as soon as I have done so. For more information or to purchase Fairydiddle Forage Baskets, click here.

In other news…

Fairydiddle Farm will be returning to the New Market Farmer’s Market this Friday, May 14! In addition to hand-knit/crocheted items (new this week: scrubbies!) and notecards featuring my husband’s photography, I will have potted herb starts for sale. The farmer’s market is now open every Friday, weather permitting, from noon until 4 p.m. Find us in the municipal parking lot beside Jalisco Mexican Restaurant, just off Congress Street (Rt. 11).
