We have some exciting new arrivals this week!
Grains from Maine
Maine Grains is our newest partner producer. Amber and her partners are providing needed resources for many Northern Maine farmers to diversify their crop selection. Maine Grains is supporting these farmers’ conversion to organic production as well processing their grains for the growing and hungry regional market. Welcome!
Cracked Oats (like a steel cut oat)
Vegetable Abundance From the Farms
Foote Brook Farm has Boston Lettuce again and also this week Green Beans.
River Berry Farm Carrots are back!
Plenty of Cherry Tomatoes this week as well.
Nice big Radishes are coming in from Gaylord Farms.
As usual, we have a great selection of fresh herbs and edible flowers from Red Wagon Plants.
Fruit this Week
Apples are all done this week – but Blueberries from Scott Farm have arrived just in time. These are grown with great care and no spray by Zeke whom you may remember from his heirloom apples last fall.
Catch of the Week
Hake – Adventuresome Share
Yellowfin Tuna – Traditional Share – This abundant and delicious fish is available again this week. See Nel’s recipe in the Meal Basket section for a wonderful preparation – or simply grill it with a light marinade.
Pasta Selections from Valicenti Organico
Broccoli & Fontina Ravioli (Their own broccoli, fontina cheese from Lombardy, a hint of lemon and garlic — very accessible)
Moroccan Braised Carrots & Chick Peas Ravioli (Their own carrots & oven-dried tomatoes, caramelized w/onions, garlic and toasted cumin, coriander & fennel then braised for 2 1/2 hours in a tomato based vegetable stock and finished with lots of their fresh herbs — super good, one of their original flavors).
Tricolored Casarecci in the colors of the Italian flag! (Their own basil and tomatoes to color/flavor the red & green pasta along with unadulterated basic semolina for the “white” contrast to the red & green)
Spinach Fettuccine (the old standard with their own spinach to color/flavor the dough)
