Augustine’s Farm was bustling on Saturday. Farmer John and Kathy report that the white cherries have been both unique and popular, as are both strawberries and blueberries.

Peaches, plums and nectarines are also selling fast, in addition to vegetables including zucchini, tomatoes, green beans, Brussels sprouts, carrots, scallions and radishes. There is also honey from Kathy’s hives, freshly laid eggs and greenhouses full of annuals, perennials and herbs. Customers can also expect to find spinach Swiss Chard, lettuces, broccoli and luscious salad in raised beds.Kathy said she hopes to have local strawberries as well.

    Augustine’s is an enduring joy of life in Greenwich! John and Kathy are always a joy to visit and helpful with tips on choosing and using their bounty of delicious fresh foods. Before moving to Eastern Connecticut in retirement, I’d visit their stand twice or three times a week in season and was never once disappointed!
