RAFFLE TIME at VFC

Enter to win our seasonal raffle in Wellness before May 6th!

It's springtime, and we're bouncin' like bunnies for these seasonal wonders! 

  • RAMP IT UP!
    Local ramps are now IN HOUSE FOR A LIMITED TIME ONLY (ahh, such is the elusive wildcrafting window of these glorious plants- for the season is oh-so-short)...
    Ramps can be a scallion/green onion replacer. Some use just the greens and down the neck, other Allium-Lovers utilize each bit of it, right down just before the roots! JOIN US MONDAY 5/2, 3-6PM: Deli Dept.'s got the right idea and is sampling Ramp-Pesto-Pasta (which is just as fun to say as it is to eat)!
      

  • PEDDLE TO THE NETTLES!
    As fresh as a newborn lamb, these nettles are WILD & FRESH & OH-SO-LOCAL! Do wear gloves before altering these (i.e. blending, chopping, sauteeing, etc.) otherwise you'll get stung by these stinger dingers. Never tried 'em? Now's the time to grab a bunch of ramps, a bag of nettles, then treat yo'self to some gourmet pesto by adding a parmesan cheese, and maybe some walnuts and blending together with some olive oil (or any oil of choice). With pestos, the springtime-sky is the limit! 

  • URBAN MOONSHINE PLANT DIVERSITY KIT RAFFLE TIME!
    If you are in the store anytime now through next Thursday, be sure to sign up to win this oh-so-seasonally appropriate basket that contains such lovely treats as a plantable bee bomb, citrus digestive bitters, a bottle of the terrific Aller-Blast fit for any allergy-prone King or Queen, along with some other treats (which you'll just have to sneak a peak of by coming in and signing up to win)!
