New Location coming to Surprise, Arizona & Veggie List for 3/5+6/2011


I have some exciting news for many a customer who lives in the Surprise/Sun City area.  I have a new market location for my neighbors to the north and slightly east of my farm.  I will be setting up under the covered patio at the Riverboat Acres Bingo Hall beginning March 19, 2011.  8 to noon on Saturday, every Saturday unless it is a holiday then I won’t be there.  Just so you all know; come rain, shine, hail, snow, large hail, heavy snow, 6 foot rain drops, or 110 miserable degrees the market will be there.  The vegetables keep on growing and they must be bought and they must be eaten by all of you.  If you want to sign up for my weekly veggie list, send me your email address to tonopahrob@gmail.com . You can also find me on facebook!!!!!

Other news of interest:

I have created a “Grow a Farmer” program.  I mentor folks who like to garden or farm, all naturally, on small parcels for free.  All I ask in return is that you bring your produce exclusively to my markets and sell to my wonderful customers.  Please call or email me for details.

If you have chickens and need pure freshly milled certified organic chicken feed please contact me. 

On Saturday’s only at my farm, I give free tours to any group size.   8 to noon are the hours of operation.

Speaking engagements, if you have a gourmet club, book club, food watchers group, HOA group and would like to know where your food comes from, let’s talk.

Here’s the veggie list:

  • Carrots
  • Beets
  • Watermelon Radishes
  • Diakon Radish
  • Assorted Turnips
  • Salad Mix
  • Swiss Chard
  • Tangelos
  • Sweet Kale
  • Broccoli
  • Fresh Eggs
  • A surprise or two

I will have a new urban farmer at the Stock Shop Market. His name is Chuck.    He’s 91 years old and loves to garden.  He will have pink grapefruit, lemons and maybe sweet oranges. If you have a few tomato plants in your yard, Chuck will have 4 year old aged and sifted horse manure for sale at  3.00 dollars a bag.  What a deal!

This the second time I have driven out to the riverside bingo parlor on a Saturday at 9Am looking for your stand. The parking lot gates are locked and closed. What is going on that I’m missing here? Please reply.

There is a tab on my web site (directions to the markets) announcing market directions, locations, times and dates. The Riverboat market is held twice a month. First and third Saturday of each month. 8 to noon. July 2 and 16, 2011 are the last two markets for the summer. We won’t be back until November/December. You can also call 623 386 3033 for more details.
