The FoodHub Fresh Sheet is a rundown of what’s popping in the community this week.

This week focuses on strawberries, beets and fennel (oh my!) and  getting your products to market.

How-To FoodHub: Ear to acre or head to herd – you can now specify your production capacity in your FoodHub profile! Click to edit the About Us section and answer the question that fits you best: acres in production, number of head or pounds of fish/seafood harvested per year.
