Certified Farmers Market Fresh Pick of the week: Cucumbers
All kinds of fresh Cucumbers are this week’s Fresh Pick of the Week from the Certified Farmers’ Markets. Choose from English (burpless) cucumbers, pickling cucumbers, even Persian cucumbers! They’re all fresh, locally-grown and delicious, whether you want to eat them fresh, or use them to make pickles.
Did you know: Cucumbers belong to the same family as watermelon, zucchini, pumpkin, and squash. Although we generally think of them as vegetables, Cucumbers are actually classified as fruits.
Price: $ 2.00 per pound.
