Blackbird Farms of Coopersville
This week at market, we are offering again our pre-selected, pre-packed bags of fresh vegetables. These bags are something akin to our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) shares. We assemble bags of our highest quality veggies based on whatever is fresh and in season for that week. In the bag, we aim to have some combination and quantity of at least six different vegetables with a combined value around $20. We also include a brief note from Farmer Greg and a farm-tested recipe. Each bag costs $15.
This week’s bag will likely contain some combination of the following: sweet peppers, kale, leeks, mini-cabbage, pie pumpkin, storage onions, and microgreens. Again, each bag will cost $15.
This week we also will have a variety of vegetables available for pre-order:
—kale (red curly, green curly, and lacinato): 1 pound for $4
—collard greens: 1 pound for $4
—full-size cabbages (conical, savoyed, and Napa): $4 each
—kohlrabi: 1 bunch of 3 for $5
—fennel: 1 bunch of 3 for $5
—leeks: 1 pound for $3
—shallots: $10 a pound (1/2 pound minimum order)
—Music garlic (larger cloves, ~4-5 cloves per head): $15 per pound (1/2 pound minimum order)

2. Vendors will respond back by no later than Friday before market day with an order confirmation and an invoice that in most cases will allow you to pre-pay for your order. If a vendor is not set up to take payment online they will accept checks (preferred) or cash in a sealed envelope on market day pickup.

Please put your first & last name at the top of the list. Tape or hold up the list to the side window or front windshield where it will be most visible.
5. Have your trunk, or designated area of your car ready to receive your goods. A cooler is suggested for refrigerated & frozen items.
