What’s in Season?


You may be surprised to hear that fresh black mission figs are making a comeback this time of year- but only for a short period of time! Our suppliers are estimating these figs will only be around until mid March, so don’t hesitate! Also noteworthy, asparagus is beginning to be harvested from fields back in California. The California asparagus crops were planted before this cold and wet snap, delaying the harvest a bit. The crops should be rolling in within the next few weeks. Lastly, we will be sourcing a fantastic rhubarb– field grown from Washington. You typically might find rhubarb grown from a hot house, but this product is picked straight from the crisp Washington area fields and is as fresh as it gets.

Citrus is still something to talk about this time of year- Meyer lemons of course a highlight of the season as well as oranges (navel, blood, and Cara Cara all fantastically juicy!), and lovely ruby red grapefruits. Also remaining strong are root vegetables. Beets, turnips, parsnips, sun chokes and carrots of all types love this cold weather! We also have a great organic chicory blend in house from Coke Farms, perfect to use by itself either sautéed or lightly grilled, or added to salads for extra texture and zing!

Processed Fruits and Vegetables
