If you’re a big fan of mushrooms, you need to visit the new Patchwork Gardens booth at the Bainbridge Farmers Market.  Listen here to learn more about Russell Lawson and the many varieties of mushroom he sells at the market.

Whether you’re in the mood for a giant oyster, king or shaggy mane mushroom, the Bainbridge Farmers Market is the place to be on Saturdays from 9 am – 1.  Listen here as Russell Lawson, proprietor of Patchwork Gardens, tells us what it takes to bring these and other fresh delights to the Market each weekend.

A new vendor at the Market, Russell discusses his move into growing mushrooms, what motivated this change in farming for him, and how science and technology have played key roles in his success.
