I always get a big charge out of shopping at Specialty Produce mainly because of the top quality produce and the great customer service. I also have to admit it's a bit exciting shopping in a working warehouse and shopping alongside some of the local chefs.
I've never bought one of the Farmer's Market boxes before, but when I found out half of the ingredients in this week's box was on my list I bought one.
In the box this week is
Asparagus from Life's a Choke Farm
Dill from Be Wise Ranch
Green Leaf Lettuce Be Wise Ranch
Valencia Oranges Polito Family Farms
Amarosa Fingerling Potatoes, Weiser Family Farms
Purple Daikon Radishes Black Sheep Produce
Natural Flame Raisins Peacock Family Farms
Purple Kohlrabi Suzi's Farm
Bloomsdale Spinach Black Sheep Produce
Ruby Tango Tangerines Sun West
Along with the Farmer's Market Box, I bought.
Cabbage, I bought two huge heads so I can make sauerkraut. Carrots, Arugula,
Fingerling Mix Peewee Potatoes, Easter Egg Radish, Squash blossom, Italian Cipollini Onions
Yellow Onions, Jalapeno Peppers, Sweet Potatoes, Zucchini and Cherry Tomatoes.
Oh, and we can't forget
Quail Eggs to cook over easy to top the asparagus.
And that's that, until next time ;-)
