Celebrate the Season All Summer Long!

Conner Smith can be found at the Fox & Wolf Stand #39 at Market. He fills his stand to the brim each week with USDA-certified organic produce, eggs, and farm flowers from a generational farm in Pine Grove started by his great-grandparents in 1900.

Our Mystery Market Chef created a summer salad inspired by two Fox & Wolf farm offerings. The dish combines incredible flavor, lovely textures, and delightful eye appeal. It is also super simple to make for a summer salad that will enhance any meal. Enjoy the full recipe for Pea Shoot Salad with Asian Dressing
