Corona Virus Note:
Thank you for making local farmers a priority! Unfortunately, right now we are at max capacity for customer orders.
Our new customer registrations have almost quadrupled in the last two weeks and as a team of six, we are unable to fulfill all of these orders. We have started assigning our new sign ups to a wait list so that once we have re-calibrated our operations and hired the necessary employees, we can open up our registrations again. At this time, we do not have an estimated date of when we will be able to add new customers. We will send an email letting you know that you can begin ordering from us. Please register an account to be placed on the waitlist.
*If you are over 60 or immunocompromised, please say so in the Driver Notes during registration. You will be the first removed from our waiting list.*
HOW IT WORKS
1) Market offerings/prices finalized by Friday morning for the following week (*see below)
2) Customize your order until Sunday 12:00
3) Look for these icons about freshness and food miles:
|Harvest-to Order: The farmer doesn't harvest it until you order it.|
|Grown within 50 driving miles of the Space Needle. Map|
|Grown within 200 driving miles of the Space Needle. Map|
|Grown in the Cascadia Bioregion (WA, OR, ID, BC). Map|
*If you register and wait to receive the email on Friday announcing the market is open, make sure our emails don't go to your spam/promotions folder. We'll send you a welcome email after you register.
Store the head, unwashed, in a plastic bag in the fridge. Or wrap a damp paper towel around the head and place in the crisper. These should last 4-5 days (or more) when properly stored.
British folks tend to call it "Cos" lettuce becuase it is said to have originated on the Greek island of Cos (Kos) near Turkey.
Romans usually ated it cooked as Cappadocian lettuce and was also called Roman lettuce because of their belief in its healing properties. According to the Roman historian Pliny, Augustus Caesar put up a statue to honor it after being cured of a serious illness believing in its healing abilities.
The Popes in the 14th Century brought this lettuce with them when they temporarily moved from Rome to Avignon and called that name as well.
