What’s in Season?


Spring has officially begun, which means many items are transitioning back to California harvest areas! One such item is organic asparagus from Durst Farms in Esparto, California. We are currently stocking both California organic and conventional available in a large size. Standard and jumbo sizes are available upon request! Another spring specialty item being harvested now are the earthy fava beans. English peas will be next, suppliers are advising these sweet, delicious local peas are due to be available the first part of April! Local artichokes from the Castroville area are beginning to flow in as well. Also noteworthy, we read news that California strawberries are coming on early this season- so look forward to seeing a quality California product hitting the market sooner than usual!

Green garlic has been outstanding the past few weeks, and continues to arrive to us looking stunning- the lovely purple hues of this product sure do get our attention. Beautifully bright rainbow chard is still going strong, as well as specialty citrus such as Meyer lemons.  Bagged loose beets as well as baby bunched beets are also great options at this point of the season, packed with flavor.
