ITEMS TO WATCH
Berries have really been a struggle the last few weeks. Farms are reporting labor shortages for fruit pickers, which is limiting supply. But, of course, demand is higher than usual for this time of year. However, we do have a great deal on blueberries! Avocado market is desperately awaiting relief from Mexico, but after more tropical storms raging in the area, that relief is seemingly further and further away. Current supply has been a mix of fruit from both California and Mexico growing areas, with a high price tag.
We are offering saucing tomatoes at $2.25 per pound. This will be a mixed variety of overripe, organically grown heirloom tomatoes. There have been A LOT of heirloom tomatoes coming in after last week’s heat. Help us turn these great ripe tomatoes into something delicious!
ARTISANAL CHEESE NOTES
Fresh Jersey Cow Mozzarella is a must try this time of year. Pairing perfectly with our tomato options in any capacity, this locally sourced product comes from our favorite Double 8 Dairy in Petaluma. Made fresh to order, Andrew and his team have put a lot of love and care into the dairy and it really shows in his offerings. Please pre order this item or better yet let’s set up a standing order!
