VEGETABLES AND FLOWERS FROM CNL GARDENS


Chue Kai Chasengnou started Cha New Life Garden in September 2005 when he moved from Sacramento, California to Duvall with his wife Jue and two daughters, Sunshine and Suzie.  Chue left his life as an auto mechanic because he wanted to pursue a farming business. In his native land Laos, farming was what he did as a child.
Farming is Chue’s passion and he enjoys providing fresh local vegetables to his customers. He grows his crops naturally, using organic farming practices and without any fertilizer other than compost and chicken manure on his crops.  Of Chue's twenty five acres, about three acres are dedicated to growing flowers, with the remainder used for growing vegetables and fresh berries, including strawberries and raspberries. Cha New Life Garden is located by the Snoqualmie River just north of Duvall.
Cha New Life grows many varieties of vegetables for local farmers markets that aren’t always available at grocery stores. They are best known for their large variety and size of their lettuces heads.  All of the vegetables, fruits and flowers are freshly picked late at night or early in the morning, depending on the market day.  Everything that comes to the Farmers Market is guaranteed as fresh as possible.
The farm business began selling produce at only a couple of farmers markets, but over the years they have grown to have a presence at a number of markets throughout the area.  In addition to the Duvall Farmers Market every Thursday, Cha New Life Garden is at the Crossroad, Renton, Kirkland, and Lake Sammamish Farmers Markets during the week and the Redmond, Issaquah, Des Moines, and Lake Forest Park markets on the weekend.
In the last few years, Chue has been apprenticing his son, Jon in hopes to pass on his knowledge and the family business. Chue’s goal is to keep his “dream” of providing wonderful produce alive through his son and on to his grandsons.  
None of this would be possible without the help of Chue’s wonderful wife Jue, son Jon and daughters Sunshine, Suzie, and May.

Cedar Ridge Winery closes


The three year run of Cedar Ridge Winery at the Duvall Farmer’s Market has come to an end – last Thursday  was my last day here.  The winery will be sold out of inventory by the end of this week and will be shutting down commercial operations. 

When the Snohomish market made the political decision to be ‘family friendly’ (whatever that means) and exclude wine from the market after 6 years, I went in search of another market at which to distribute my wine.  Duvall was open to the idea and sought the required approvals from both the state and the city.  It has been my privileged to share a booth with Piccola winery for these past three years, and your support as customers has made it all worthwhile. 

I am grateful to the market staff for making it all happen and working to accommodate individual schedules.  I also want to thank all of the market patrons and my customers for the great support during my tenure.  While I will miss the markets and the fellowship with vendors and customers alike, it is time for me to get back to more domestic activities.  So again, thank you to all.
