Sweet Corn is back…

October 19, 2016

This week at the markets we will have the first of the fall season Organic Sweet Corn.  I had some for dinner last night and it is wonderful.  They just need a minute or two in boiling water and then they are ready to serve.  The Organic Sweet Corn never lasts long at the market, so make sure to get there early.

As well, Mary will be sampling Rosa Lynn and Fuji organic apples this week at both the Uptown  and the Old Town Scottsdale markets.  These apples are perfect for fall baking or to send in school lunch boxes.

We will also have Organic Burr Gherkin cucumber pickles that have just been jarred for us by Cotton Country.  They are some of the best pickles you will ever taste.

See you at the markets!

This week McClendon’s Select is back to our full farmers’ market schedule.  We had a great start to the season last week at Uptown, and this week we will be returning to Old Town Scottsdale on Saturday.  With the markets back in full swing both farms are beautiful right now and bursting with all sorts of veggies coming into season.  I went out to our Goodyear farm this morning for a preview of what is to come.  Here is a peek…

Tomorrow at our Wednesday Uptown market we will have a nice selection of beautiful organic strawberries, a large assortment of winter squashes, including market favorite Sugar Pie pumpkins, and all of your favorite organic greens including baby salad mix, baby spinach and fresh arugula.  There will be several types of fresh fingerling potatoes, including Red Thumb, Purple Peru and La Ratte.  And we just received the first of the season Chanterelles from our mushroom harvesters in Oregon.

After a warm and productive summer, McClendon’s Select is ready to return to the farmers’ markets.  We have been busy in both Peoria and Goodyear with fall planting the past few weeks.  Above is our green house with thousands of tiny plants waiting to be transplanted into the fields.  Sean has been up and in the fields at 2:00am with his transplanter and a crew from the farm making sure that all of the plants can get into the ground and be properly watered before the sun comes up and the heat rises.

We are excited to return to the markets starting next Wednesday, October 5th at the Uptown Farmers’ market and on the following week we will begin back at the Old Town Scottsdale Farmers’ market on Saturday, October 15th.  John’s Amish Country will continue to have our produce at the Uptown Market on Saturdays as he has throughout the summer.  Once again, Noble Bread will be joining us at the markets with their incredible assortment of breads, muffins and other goodies.  We look forward to seeing everyone and hope you had a great summer!

Tomorrow is our last Wednesday market of the season at the Uptown Farmers Market.  We will be bringing some beautiful summer items including organic sweet corn, seedless watermelons and mixed sweet peppers.  Noble Bread will be joining us with lots of fresh baked Organic Artisan bread.

The Uptown Wednesday market is closing for the summer, but will reopen on Wednesday, October 5th.  Until then, the Uptown Saturday market will still be open and inside Building B, to help you escape the heat.  Our produce will be sold at the Uptown Saturday markets by John’s Amish Country.  Please visit him and the other Uptown vendors on Saturdays this summer.

We thank you all for your continued support of our farm.  This family farm has been able to grow and thrive throughout the years because of all of your support and we are so very grateful.  We look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow and hope you have a great rest of your summer!

The forecast for this weekend is a blistering 112-degrees, but good news, the Uptown Farmers’ Market is moving indoors.  Starting this Saturday and for the rest of the summer, you can shop in air conditioned comfort while buying your veggies and market staples from the vendors at Uptown.  John’s Amish Country will have a large selection of McClendon’s Select organic fruits and vegetables.  Come join him and the rest of the market INSIDE at the North Phoenix Baptist Church on Central and Bethany Home Road from 8:00am to noon.  A/C on a hot day… can’t ask for more than that!
