For the past three weeks I have been visiting our pickup sites and listening to many of you. It has been wonderful. So many fantastic ideas and inventive efforts. Thank you – you are making a difference.

Fresh from our Farmers and Producers

  • Fiddleheads– wild harvested from the Champlain Valley of Vermont- these verdant spirals taste similar to asparagus and are a true sign of spring
  • Toddler Kale– young and tender leaves from Miskell’s Premium Organics
  • Green Swiss Chard–  enjoy this leafy green lightly sauteed, added to a soup or  in a Torta with Potatoes and Feta!
  • Spring dug Parsnips– freshly pulled from the ground after a winter of cold treatment makes these extremely sweet and full of flavor.
