Cod, mushrooms, bread
Last week a couple of market board members joined me on a site visit to Madura Farms, in Goshen, where we spent quite a bit of time visiting Dan Madura’s mushroom “den” – two truck beds that have been converted into misty, temperature-controlled rooms where the mushrooms morph and spawn.
It’s always nice to get away from the market and step on the soil where our farmers labor. In this case, the very rich, loamy soil of black dirt country in Orange County. This is also home to Morgiewicz Produce, who, like most farmers, is getting a jump on sowing thanks to the winter that never really was. Looks like we will have plenty of greens come May 7th when we open outside at the train station.
