Produce List for Friday November 10th

Posted 11/7/2017 12:17pm by Natalie Kujala.

Well, it’s officially cold, though I’m not exactly the best judge of temperature as I consider anything below 60-degrees sweater, hat, and glove weather. That being said, I’m writing this as the thermostat is barely inching past 40, and the weatherman is telling me that Friday night will show numbers in the 20s! I think there might be a good bit of agreement that 20-degree weather is cold! Think warm thoughts for all of the farmers who brave the weather no matter what it bears, to bring food to your table, grocery stores, and favorite restaurants.  

NOTE: Several of you have been asking if we are hosting our customer farm tour this year. Unfortunately, due to several factors, we won’t be able to. BUT, if anyone is interested in touring one or two of our farms, please let us know as we will be happy to show you around!  

HIGHLIGHTS:  

BABY GREENS: Missing the freshness of those summer veggies? Don’t fret! We have freshly harvested baby greens coming in several days a week! As a reminder, many of our baby greens (arugula, sweet & spicy, ruby streaks mustard, pea shoots) can packed in 5lb, 8lb, or 10lb cases. Please let us know by WEDNESDAY if you are interested in a pack that is not on our list! Bulk cases mean growers use less materials for packing. What that means for you? More savings!  

LARATTE FINGERLINGS: These nutty and buttery fingerlings are literally the queen of the fingerlings. In the US, some sell these under the name “La Reine” (meaning the queen). Who needs to buy chestnuts, hazelnuts, or almonds, when you could have a whole case of LaRattes?    

HEAD LETTUCE: Landisdale Farm and Chicano Sol have fields flush with lettuce, which has enabled us to keep our lettuces prices low. We have especially high volumes of small and full-sized heads of green romaine, but we also have red leaf and green leaf to spare. Looking for a volume (10+ cases)? Ask Natalie or Emily about pricing!  

COMING SOON: CITRUS! This year we are excited to be bringing in citrus from South Tex Organics in Mission, TX. By next Tuesday, we should have grapefruits, oranges, and lemons!  

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.
