Beginning their seventh season with a fresh take on gardening at their renowned Tangletown Gardens, owners Scott Endres and Dean Englemann have launched a daily Tangletown Farm Market, adding sustainably grown fresh produce to their garden center.
Now, you can expect the unexpected every day, as you choose from the season’s best vegetables and herbs for your table, along with annuals, perennials, pottery, and statuary.
Adding edible plants sustainably grown at their greenhouse facility near Plato was a logical step, according to Endres: “Dean and I have been enjoying ultrafresh, ultraflavorful seasonal produce from our own gardens for many years. Now, our guests can expand their culinary palette by experimenting with many more varieties than they might choose to grow themselves.”
The new market offers the flexibility of immediacy.
“Stop in any day of the week, and we will provide you with the fresh, tasty results of our harvest,” Englemann adds. “We are proud that our plants are grown using principles of sustainable agriculture. We’ve recently invested in low-carbon-emission, high-efficiency-biomass furnaces to heat our greenhouses, and to free our dependence on fossil fuel. In addition, we have switched most of our greenhouse fertility to seed-extract-based fertilizers, and regularly seek natural pest control options to control insect and disease challenges. Because our plants are locally grown, we support local economies, while reducing our carbon footprint—something you can be proud of, too.”
