We are so excited to see you this week and get you your fresh vegetables and other great local food items!
This time of year we know you understand variety is at it’s lowest. BUT we have a great quantity of these selected items, so you can really order away and stock up on so much green goodness!
Our vegetables are picked to order and super fresh, so of course they last a long while in the fridge. You should find you can order enough to get you almost through the two weeks until the next pick up.
There is a great selection of meats avaialable from Bear Creek and Wedge Oak Farm, as well as eggs and our favorite cheese source, The Bloomy Rind. Dozen Bakery bread freezes quite well if you want an extra loaf.
Our next delivery date after this Wednesday will be Wednesday, February 21st
We are really excited for the year ahead, and hope to continue to serve you in the best way possible! We are always open to feedback and questions. It helps us to be better at what we do, so we appreciate you letting us know what you love or what some concerns may be!
Thanks for all your support – we look forward to seeing you on Wednesday!
