For Tuesday Dec 13th

Posted 12/9/2016 10:55am by Emily Best.

Emily is making the rounds in the DC/Maryland/Northern Virginia area today. I heard rumors that she may be enjoying some kombucha on tap (not that I’m jealous or anything...). While I’m not sure what the weather is like out her way today, it certainly is a cold, windy day here at the cooperative. I keep thinking about our growers and how tough they are, working hard to harvest and pack the produce we sell and deliver to our wonderful customers! Check out our list today, as there are some surprises on there! 

Reminder: We will be CLOSED for the Christmas holiday Dec 26th and 27th (meaning NO DELIVERIES on Tuesday the 27th). We will be open as normal all other days, included January 2nd and 3rd – we will deliver as usual on Tuesday the 3rd.    

 

HIGHLIGHTS  

SMALL HEAD BROCCOLI: We still have a lot of these adorable little nuggets on our list. Not only are they cute, they are healthy, delicious, and easy to prepare (less chopping!).  

GARLIC: We still have a strong supply of red and purple striped garlic. The other night I made a delicious batch of garlic hummus using some of our red garlic. Yum yum!    

GREENS: Tis the season for baby greens! We have lots of arugula, wildfire, mesclun, sweet and spicy, and my personal favorite of the moment- purple mizuna (which I’ve been putting on pretty much everything!). Salad anyone?? We also have more bunched kales and collards from Eastern Carolina Organics in North Carolina. What a treat!  

INTERESTING PRODUCE: For Christmas, my family is exchanging “unusual/rare food items” instead of conventional presents. This is great for me, since I just might know some people who grow produce such as salsify, scorzonera, purple kohlrabi, celeriac, yacon, claytonia, and burdock root.  

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.
