Availability List For Friday June 30th

Posted 6/27/2017 12:01pm by Natalie Kujala.

What is it with this weather lately… it’s hot, then it’s cold, then it’s downpouring, then it’s hot again, and then the nights are in the low 50’s… we’re seeing produce availability change very quickly around here, so forgive us if we come up short on something. The growers can’t make accurate predictions when the weather is so funky.     We are starting to hear rumors about the elusive early July tomatoes starting to come in soon so stay tuned…in the meantime, please enjoy a kale lunch and a zucchini dinner every day because that’s what we’ve got available this week! We snagged this pic from our friends at Oak Nut Farm! That is one relaxed bean!

HIGHLIGHTS & LOWLIGHTS:

BASIL: Prices have hit a new low on this delicious herb. May I suggest zucchini, sautéed with some scapes and scallions, and then finished with some torn basil? This may also be the week to make pesto.

New! NEW WHITE POTATOES: I love a new potato, so flavorful and tender, and goes so well with summer herbs. We have white potatoes available now from Greenbriar farm in several size options.

BEANS: We’ve bean waiting all season for beans and now we’ve got green beans available! They are mostly coming from renowned bean grower New Morning Farm and they are tasty!

ZUCCHINI: You didn’t think I wouldn’t list zucchini, right? We’re being offered like 2000 lbs worth of zucchini this week. It always happens this time of year, the zucchini just goes nuts with the long days and nights. So let’s get some zucchini moving this week!

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.
