For two months out of each year, The Veggie Bin goes on hiatus. For the months of August and September, our farmers don’t have enough produce to fill our bin orders. This is due to the extreme heat we’re already beginning to feel. As July goes on, produce becomes more and more difficult to find. Each week, we strive to find a variety of fruits and veggies, repeating only when necessary or when we have a seasonal favorite that is only available for a few weeks each year. (Good examples of this are our berries.)
We are making every effort to keep your bins up to our standards of variety, but we hope you’ll be patient with us if you get some of the same items in your bin these last few weeks of July. Our farmers are really sweating it out there and it’s been an especially rainy season which can ruin crops.
Be sure to mark your calendars for the end of Veggie Bin season. We’ll be reminding you often and starting you up again automatically when we come back in October. Thank you for your patience and stay cool, Veggie Binners!

Your tomatoes came to us from Hoover Farm in Live Oak, Florida – less than 95 miles from most of our customers’ homes.
Nothing calls up fond memories of summers past like a good tomato. Sliced on a sandwich, tossed in a salad or munched like an apple, the flavor of summer is defined by many as this juicy red orb. As we learn more about how our food and our health work together, the positive properties of the humble tomato have become obvious.
If you’d like a little extra instruction on how to prep tomatoes, here’s a helpful video.
