Availability for Friday August 4th

Posted 8/1/2017 12:54pm by Natalie Kujala.

I’m pretty excited right now, because we are seeing more and more melons by the day. One of my favorite things about my job is working creatively with what our growers have to offer and what our customers want. This includes melon bins! In the next couple of weeks we will start to see melon quantities in the numbers high enough to accommodate bin orders. If this is something you’re interested in, let’s start talking!  

A quick note from Emily: Recently, we’ve had several instances of produce being rejected upon delivery, not due to quality, but because of over-ordering. These returned cases most often go to waste, which means the grower doesn’t get paid for their hard work. Going forward, we will be assessing a $5 fee to any returned case that does not have evident quality concerns. Please take care when ordering and thanks for your attention to this issue. 

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:

BABY LEEKS: Limestone Acres Farm has done an impressive job growing these challenging alliums. I love the mild flavor of leeks, and I appreciate the manageability of the baby crop- they fit so perfectly on my cutting board.

SUNGOLDS: Sungolds are so prolific right now that they deserve yet another shout out on the cover letter. We have discounted these little gems again today to rock bottom prices to move as many flats as possible. An old roommate of mine makes sungold tomato sauce, and let me tell you, it is DELICIOUS. If you haven’t made it or tried it, I highly recommend doing so.

GREEN CABBAGE: Our small-head green cabbage grower would really like to see more of these moving off of his farm and into your stores and restaurants. Therefore, we are dropping the price to an almost unbelievable low. I priced them, but I still did a double take! Cabbage rolls anyone??

EGGPLANT: Boy do we have a great variety of eggplants being offered this week, and we have an especially hearty supply of fairy tales and specialty mix available. Check out our Instagram page for a glimpse of what’s available!

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.
