Availability List For Tuesday August 1st

Posted 7/28/2017 12:57pm by Natalie Kujala.

Can you believe it’s almost August?! I certainly can’t. I feel like I was just a walking ball of yarn in bulky sweaters, scarves, and wool-lined boots, and somehow I’ve found myself in dresses and skirts. I guess that’s what happens when things are busy- time flies! Time indeed has flown, but I just love this time of year. Warm days, long nights, and an incredible variety of delicous, fresh, local produce. Unbeatable.  

LOWLIGHT:  

SUMMER SQUASH: It sounds like all summer squash varieties are in an unfortunate lull this week. Hopefully we will be back on track next week. BUT, fear not! I hear Sungolds are an excellent subsitute for zucchini...

HIGHLIGHTS:  

PEACHES: Our peach offers are still going strong, so I’m leaving them at the top of the highlight list. Peachey’s Fruit Farm is now supplying us with just one variety of yellow peaches that are sweeter than the earlier peach varieties. As Shelly, our production coordinator so eloquently described, these peaches have the full flavor of summer!  

SUNGOLDS: Holy smokes have Sungolds taken off! We have discounted these little gems yet again to move as many flats as possible. Cherry tomatoes are quite labor intensive, but our growers love them so much that they are willing to go through the effort and time to bring you these summer treats. The offer still stands to drop the price even further for 10+ case orders.  

CABBAGE: Another one of my personal favorites- green cabbage! My old roommate from New Morning Farm found it so odd that after coming in from a long day of work, all I’d want was a big bowl of chopped up raw cabbage. Is it just me? I found it refreshing and filling! Maybe you have more “typical” ways of enjoying cabbage- we’d love to hear about it!

BABY FENNEL: Love fennel? Check! Love adorable baby crops? Check! Love an interesting veggie that can be creatively prepped and eaten raw or cooked? Check! Well, well, lucky for you we’ve got just what you’re looking for- baby fennel!  

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.
