Summer CSA - Week 9

You say TO-MAH-TO, I say TO-MAY-TO!

In glorious sun-kissed colors, and ranging from pop-in-your-mouth marble sized goodies to slicing giants, our mixed crop of this summer favorite are making their way into the farm store and your CSA share. A special addition to your share this week, our pick-your-own cherry tomatoes are exploding with flavor!

In your Week-9 share this week...

  • Eggplant
  • Leeks
  • Small Leaf Basil- Use just as you would large leaf basil. Take off the stem and top your tomatoes with it! Or make into a pesto! 
  • Flat Beans
  • Slicing Tomatoes
  • Bell Pepper
  • PYO Cherry Tomatoes

Also in the Farm Store this week are Shitake mushrooms from our friends at local Saugatuck Farms. These are one of the most popular mushrooms worldwide so we are happy to offer them for the limited times they are available. Shitake are prized for their rich, savory taste and diverse health benefits. We just love them sautéed with our leeks as a pizza topping or pasta mix-in.

Enjoy!
