This coming week is going to be a bit of a doozy, with deliveries Tuesday, a
sandwich market Wednesday (11:30-2), AND the Mission Community
Market on Thursday. To keep my sanity, I'll be taking my bicycle up North
for the weekend, enjoying some sunshine, rivers, and pedaling.
But before I do, I'd love to introduce Twin Girls Farm, growers of the sweetest
darn white nectarines I've ever had.
Twin Girls Farm began with a 6.5 acre plot in Fresno county, and has since
grown to a whopping 518 acres of organic farmland! Growing everything from
jujubes to donut nectarines, Twin Girls attends markets year round.
The farm is named after farmers Ignacio and Casamira's twin daughters.
You can find Twin Girl Farms at the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market on Tuesdays and
Saturdays, the Mission Community Market on Thursday evenings, the Alemany
Farmers Market on Saturdays, and 24 other weekly markets throughout the Bay
Area. Holy stone fruits!
Insider tip: Twin Girls sells 5 pound bags of blemished fruits for $5. Look for a
sign! The fruits are easily cleaned up, and make the most delicious cobblers,
jams and cakes.
Come visit us and Twin Girls this Thursday at the Mission Community Market!
Meet Lucy, our wonderful new marketeer, and pick up your own bag of
nectarines from the farmer himself.
