For August 5

Posted 8/2/2016 12:18pm by Emily Best.

Finally, we’ve gotten some rain around here! We’re hearing from the tomato growers that the ‘maters are ripening up very quickly now, so look to see reduced prices on mixed heirlooms, red field tomatoes, and our straight heirloom cases (Cherokees, Brandywines, and Prudens Purple).  

I’ve been eating my fair share of tomatoes: made my first batch of gazpacho and have been enjoying the classic combo of sliced tomatoes, basil, and mozzarella cheese.  

Other notes: One of our growers from northern PA reports that he could soon have WINTER squash available, can you believe that?          

HIGHLIGHTS:   BICOLOR SWEET CORN: Corn bonanza this week! A couple growers have big harvests this week, so you’ll see great pricing on the list. This corn is beautiful, juicy, and sweet. Let us know if you are interested in a large order (10+ cases).  

HEIRLOOM TOMATOES: yes, we have lots of mixed heirlooms BUT we also have a wonderful selection of straight cases – beautiful heirlooms like Cherokee Purples, Brandywines, and Prudens Purple. These tomatoes are all lovely and so flavorful, and we suspect we’ll have them around for the next few weeks as the growers are predicting a bumper crop.  

RED FIELD TOMATOES: The classic round red tomato, we’ve got these in abundance. Excellent for soup, freezing, sandwiches, etc. Talk to us about special pricing if interested in a deal.  

CHERRY TOMATOES: Lots of sungolds and mixed variety cherries available this week!
