What’s in Season?
Melon season has officially arrived! Nothing like the cool, sweet, fresh flavor of your favorite melon. Cantaloupe and honeydew are of course excellent this time of year, but have you tried unique melon varieties such as canary, casaba crenshaw, galia, golden dew, orange flesh honeydew, or Tuscan? Now is the time of year to try them! Also, beans are now coming from local California vendors. Blue lake beans are wonderful right now as well as cranberry, fava, French, Romano, and yellow wax beans. Other local items that are available include sweet corn from Brentwood (the best!), and summer squashes. We have eight ball, costata romanesco, madga, patty pans, scallopini, sunburst, and zephyr varieties. Mixed boxes of these summer squashes are available. If you would like to order any of these specialty items, please give us a day to receive them for you.
