So Excited to See the Sun!

We are so excited to see some warmer weather. Broccoli is usually a staple during the winter season but this year we haven’t seen much of it. Both cabbage and broccoli have been sitting tight in the fields waiting for some sunshine. Over the last couple of weeks broccoli has sprouted up and out and farmers have been able to harvest. Enjoy the sweet tender veggie steamed sauteed, or in casseroles, quiches, and soups!

Happy Cooking!

We are Stocking Up on Pantry Staples!

Did you know that Florida grows brown rice? We didn’t either until just recently. Organic sugar cane farms in South Florida use brown rice as a cover crop to help build the nutrients in the soil during their off season. So we decided to include it to our online store, under Pantry Staples. This got us thinking! We can help you stock up on few pantry staples from local, US, and global suppliers such as onions, bananas and more. Don’t worry, we will be sure to label each item with the product origins when they are outside of our area! Be sure to check out our online store for more veggies, fruit, and staples!

OUR VEGGIE BINS – please note that items may change due to weather or supply issues.

Local Bin (Mini): (Broccoli, Potatoes, Brussels, Green Onions, Strawberries), Mustard Greens, Tomato, Salad Mix

Organic Bin (Mini): (Broccoli, Potatoes, Napa Cabbage, Yellow Onions, Strawberries),  Artichokes, Bananas, Salad mix

Making Substitutions

Have no fear! If you do not like on our our selected items in your regular sized organic or local bin, you have the choice to remove it and double another item that’s already in the bin or make a substitution. And if you have too many veggies, the great news is that you can always select French Pantry Baguettes as one of your substitutions! Find step by step instructions in our blog post.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!

Returning your bin clean and undamaged means that we can use it again and again. This keeps costs down, minimizes landfill waste and keeps your carbon footprint smaller. Bins that aren’t returned will incur a replacement fee, so be sure to put it out for pickup!
