Availability List for Tuesday July 18th

Posted 7/14/2017 12:54pm by Natalie Kujala.

Today’s weather isn’t looking particularly promising, with 100% chance of heavy rain, and in my zip code severe thunderstorms, large hail and damaging winds. That’s not quite the evening hiking weather I was looking for, but I’m optimistic that the weather man is wrong. Word is that’s happened once or twice before. I hope the weather out your way is a bit less daunting. Stay dry and safe, and let’s hope our farmers get their field work done before the storms today.

HIGHLIGHTS:  

CELERY: An exciting new addition to our list- celery! New Morning Farm (right up the lane from our warehouse) has long ago cracked the code to organically raising this tricky crop. Their supply is limited, so if you’re hoping for a taste of these crunchy stalks, order for Tuesday delivery, and order early.  

FENNEL: Pair this licorice-flavored bulb with red beets (also on our list!) to make one of my favorite side dishes: roasted beet and fennel salad. I prefer this dish prepared minimally and simply, but I’ve heard the addition of feta cheese and pistachios can make it quite nice.  

ZUCCHINI: Summer is here, and green and raven zucchinis are here in force. Last night I brought home a pile of raven zucchini as I’m planning to make a heart-healthy “spaghetti” with it. For the sauce I’ll toss in some of our fresh basil - yum!  

KALE: Our farmers’ fields are bursting with kales of all kinds. We have green, redbor and lacinato kales to offer at volume pricing, especially if you’re buying in bulk. If you’d prefer bulk cases over bunched, even if just a case or 2, please let us know early so we can order some in for you.

SWEET & SPICY: We will be a bit limited on this favorite salad mix for Tuesday, but we should be up and running again by Friday.

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.
