Fresh from the field this week we have a good supply of brightly colored bunching carrots and red and gold cherry tomatoes. Slicing and plum tomatoes are available in limited quantities. We are harvesting the last of the green and yellow snap beans until the next crop matures in September. We continue to have plenty of zucchini, summer squash, cucumbers, onions, green peppers, and cabbage. We also have Chard, leeks, red lettuce and broccoli in limited supply.
We were very excited about our new variety of Lunchbox peppers! These little peppers need no prep work for brown bag lunches- just toss them in a sturdy container and enjoy the small, sweet, snack-size peppers whole!
Summer apples and peaches are coming in from the orchard! We have a great selection of summer apples from the tart Lodi to the juicy and crisp Jersey Mac. More and more apple varieties will be on our shelves in the weeks to come! We are expecting to have a shorter peach season than usual. Please call to make sure we have peaches available if you are coming in just for their sweet goodness.
We made seven grain buns for your grilled burgers and grilled portabella mushrooms for your late summer barbecues. These chewy, seeded buns are made from organic grains, wheat, rye, corn and oats. Don't forget to grab some charred onion catchup and Ray's Mustard to compliment your grilled creations!
Zucchini is abundant this season and perfect for summer sautés, grills, and even breads or cakes. Our sweet of the week is Chocolate Zucchini Cake. This cake is so rich and moist with just a hint of zucchini. Trust us, chocolate and zucchini go very well together, stop on in and try it for yourself. You won't be disappointed.
We are now carrying a new line of tea towels, napkins, and produce bags from Madder Root. These are made of gorgeous organic linen and have original silk screen graphics printed with water based, solvent free inks. These items are individually cut, sewn, printed, and oh so special! A perfect gift for a friend- or yourself!
