Availability for Tuesday June 20th

Posted 6/16/2017 12:12pm by Natalie Kujala.

Wow. As soon as I got into work today, the news broke about Amazon buying Whole Foods… such huge news that will have ripple effects throughout the local foods marketplace. I honestly can’t even imagine how this might change the scene (and I partially don’t want to imagine, because usually when there’s consolidation in the supply chain, farmers are forced to accept lower prices than they would like). How will this affect your business? What do you think about the news?

HIGHLIGHTS and LOWLIGHTS:

SWEET & SPICY: As you might have seen on our Instagram this week, the baby greens are growing like crazy and one grower in particular is drowning in a sea of them. Would you like to try sweet & spicy in 5 oz clamshells for your retail or CSA? Please let us know! Otherwise we will have great deals on 5 lb cases.

GARLIC SCAPES: Every year around this time we start trying to move these in volume! Low prices are in effect now.

MULBERRIES: Solomon Beiler of Limestone Acres is having a huge mulberry year! We’ve never had this many available in years past. Time to make your mulberry syrup to enjoy all summer long.

CUCUMBERS:  Still going strong on hothouse cucumbers, with diva, corinto, and Katrina varieties in high supply. Look for lower prices this week!

LETTUCE: What better to go with cucumbers than fresh, crispy lettuce? Or if you’re not into salads, try grilled romaine!

New! KOHLRABI: Tony Ricci at Green Heron Farm is growing beautiful spring kohlrabi and we’ve got purple and green in 10 lb cases. I love kohlrabi this time of year as a crudité alongside cucumbers. Great flavor and crunch.

ASPARAGUS UPDATE: Say goodbye to our stalky friend until next spring. We might have a few available for Tuesday so if you want it, please order ASAP.

NON-ORGANIC, ALL NATURAL LOCAL CHICKEN EGGS: AVAILABLE IN MEDIUM, LARGE AND EXTRA-LARGE, 15 DOZEN BULK. PLEASE CALL TIM DERSTINE AT HARES VALLEY GROWERS AT 814 448 2784 FOR GREAT EGG PRICES.
