Spring is here! Wildflowers cover the hills, and spring favorites are filling our plates. Longer afternoon sunshine with some nice weather expected this week, we are hopeful for a great week ahead! Here are some product highlights:
CALIFORNIA GROWN PRODUCTS: Asparagus, asparagus aaand asparagus. Durst Farms organically grown asparagus is in now stock and ready for every application. Tender and sweet, this product does not get any better than at this time of the year. The first harvest is typically the sweetest batch, which will certainly ring true this season with the ideal growing conditions we are currently experiencing. Artichoke supply is beginning to ramp up and supply building. Better availability on all sizes from small baby loose to larger heirloom sizes. Throw in some green garlic to your recipes, and we are full well into spring!

Perfect for pesto, added to soups or stir-fry’s, or even on top of your pizza! This spring item will add wonderful flavor and interest to your recipes.
