For Tuesday August 15th

Posted 8/11/2017 1:31pm by Natalie Kujala.

I’m a pretty happy camper right now. My fridge is jam-packed with all the goodness of summer, and I’ve been happily enjoying tomatoes and fresh basil, cucumbers with brie, and corn that’s so good it can be eaten raw, right off the cob. I must say, it’s good to know so many farmers.

HIGHLIGHTS:  

WILD CHANTERELLES: Don Lake of Lakewood Farms will have some wild chanterelles for us again next week. They are foraged from his wooded property, so these wild treats are organic!  

BELL PEPPERS: We are seeing hundreds of pounds of bell peppers offered for next week. Our growers have particularly high volumes of greens, purples, and mixed bells in their fields. We would love to see our growers’ hard work pay off by selling as many cases as we can, so these are priced to move!  

GREEN BEANS:  We’ve just heard from one of our main green bean growers that the next few plantings are looking GREAT, and they expect to have beans for the masses over the next few weeks. We have again lowered the price on these, as we would hate to see this labor-intensive crop remain unharvested.  

MELONS: Melons, melons, melons! Boy do I love melons! Even with these unpredictable low temperatures and heavy rains, our melons are still coming out on top! The price has been further reduced on the 3-4ct red seedless melons as we have a bit of a glut. I personally like the 3-4ct red seedless- less cutting and no seeds, just the good stuff!  

CORN: Oh my gracious, we finally have some corn! I know everyone has been waiting, and waiting, and WAITING for our corn this year, and it is finally here! This wild and crazy summer weather has immensely delayed this summer treat, and we really don’t know how long we will have it. My suggestion- stock up now!  

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.
