Availability List For Friday June 23rd

Posted 6/20/2017 11:55am by Natalie Kujala.

Yesterday evening, after cooking up some summer squash for dinner and getting the baby to bed, I realized it was nearly 9 pm and still light outside. I thought to myself, well, it is mid-June. Only a couple more days til the nights start getting longer again. And with this change in season comes the busiest time, when we are picking up hundreds of cases from the Valley growers, with another couple hundred being delivered, and then sent right back down the road to you. The clock is ticking until we start seeing the tomatoes rolling on in!

HIGHLIGHTS:

New! GREEN BEANS! They’re back, from New Morning Farm. NMF is known for their green beans, which they plant for weekly harvests. The beans are picked and packed mostly by three workers from Jamaica, who are here on the H2-A visa program. They’ve been coming to NMF for several years now and are an integral part of the NMF team, especially when it comes to bean picking!

New! BROCCOLI: After a few false starts, we are finally seeing some amazing spring broccoli this week. The grower is Titus Martin of Martin’s Homestead. He grew a lot of fall broccoli for us last fall and we were very impressed with his reliability and high quality. Spring broccoli is never quite as beautiful as the fall crop, but Titus is a great grower and his broccoli crowns look quite good!

New! BABY CARROTS with TOPS: Now available in Rainbow and Orange bunches. We made it almost the whole entire year with carrots on our list. I sure missed them when they were away. Spring carrots are quite tasty and the tops are good too. Plus, they look so cute on the plate with the little stemmy tops.

BASIL: Seeing lots of basil coming in this week and we’ve lowered prices accordingly. We’re also offering this fragrant herb in a 5 lb case for those of you who just need more of it!

BABY GREENS: Still going strong on SWEET & SPICY and BABY ARUGULA in the 5 lb cases. The Arugula is CUT TO ORDER in the 5 lb, so please order your 5 lb arugula ASAP. Thanks!

GARLIC SCAPES: Low prices are STILL in effect!

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.
