Availability List For Friday May 5th

Posted 5/2/2017 11:41am by Natalie Kujala.

The Kentucky Derby is upon us this week! I (Taylor) am very excited to watch this weekend’s events. Before the events start, we have some things to share with you. Our list is definitely growing as the weather inches forward through the seasons. I cannot wait to swim in Raystown Lake this year; I am daydreaming of swimming and relaxing on the banks. It definitely does not help that I can see the Aughwick Creek from my window. The creek is taunting me with its bending flow and sounds of nature. I would love to take a break to go down to swim. This will have to wait, because there are vegetables to tend to in our coolers and in our growers’ fields. We have many exciting produce options this week. Please feel free to reach out to us with any questions regarding availability now and in the coming weeks. We would really appreciate hearing from you!

HIGHLIGHTS:

MINT: The countdown to the Kentucky Derby is passing on its downhill slope. I am so excited to see the race this weekend! This means it is time for Mint Juleps. The Kentucky Derby website says that the during the weekend of the Kentucky Oaks and the Kentucky Derby,  the Churchill Downs Racetrack goes through 1000 pound of fresh mint, WOW! Please consider ordering your fresh mint from us for this wonderful drink tradition of the derby.

SPRING GARLIC: This mild, fresh tasting allium is edible from bulb to stalk. We have bulk and bunched cases available in volume. This is a wonderful addition to most dishes. Please tag us on Instagram to show us how you are using these. I could definitely use some cooking advice in the garlic department; I always end up using excessive amounts.

ASPARAGUS: This is the peak time for this wonderful spring perennial in our area. Please reach out no matter how much you are looking to purchase. We would love to share the “fruits” of our growers’ labors with you!

JUICE CARROTS: We have SEVERAL cases of juice carrots available, both orange and mixed color. We have VERY flexible pricing for 10+ cases. Please let us know if you are interested in any juice carrots, especially in volume. These beauties are calling your name with pictures of cakes, soups, and stir-fries. My mom puts carrots in her potato pancakes, which makes them all the better!
