Spring is here!

Ahhhh, we are finally feeling the sun shine on our faces and on our farms. What does that mean for Veggie Bin Members? It’s a little bit awkward in the field right now, with winter items starting to diminish and spring produce still not quite ready to harvest. But the great news…We spoke with our blueberry farmers yesterday and look forward to blueberries in our bins in just 2-3 weeks. Believe it or not, because of the cold cloudy (and rainy) days we had, it looks like we will also have another round of broccoli and cauliflower about the same time!

This week we will be dining on golden beets, napa cabbage, and sweet corn, to name a few. We have included recipes that are sure to brighten any kitchen!

Love Sourdough? We got somethin’ tasty for ya!

This week we have a special treat for our customers — We’ll be adding a complimentary Community Loaves mini sourdough loaf to each and every bin!

These delicious breads are made right here in Murray Hill by two amazing ladies, Sarah and Meredith. Their baking methods create a healthier, more traditional bread that has a lower glycemic index, more available nutrients, breaks down more gluten, and pre-digests starches. Whoa — What’s all that mean? That means it’s easier on our digestive system than other breads! All their breads are made using organic ingredients and are hearth-baked.

And ohhh it’s tasty! But don’t take our word for it, you’ll be able to try yourself next week!

Happy Cooking,

Amie

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!
