Setting up Reminders in our System

Did you know that you can control when your delivery reminders come to your email box? You can get as little or as many as you would like. We highly recommend you set up TWO reminder! The first to be sent on Sunday/Monday. This will help remind you to customize your order before the store closes at noon! The second to be set on delivery day, as a reminder to place your cooler and your empty box outside or make any necessary arrangement to bring your fresh veggies inside!
DeliveryAlerts
To set or remove your email reminders log into your account. Select Account Options  from the menu bar (top left), and then click the Delivery Reminder Emails icon. Here you can select the day or days you’d like to receive your delivery reminders. If you are having issues receiving our emails, please check your spam folder and mark our email as “not spam”.
Happy Cooking,
Amie & the FPP Team!

Veggie Unearthed

Eggplant_FairyTale600

Your Fairytale Eggplant came to us from Brown’s Farm in Orange Heights, Florida – less than 100 miles from most of our customers’ homes.

Fairytale eggplant is my very FAVORITE eggplant — it’s a petite version of the large Italian eggplant but sweeter and creamier! And I might dare say a little firmer. Substitute this variety of eggplant in soups or sautees or take advantage of the tender skin and smaller size by grilling it whole! We generally take the sweet, creamy flavor that comes from roasting these little guys with onion, olive oil, salt and pepper.

Store in your in a bowl on the counter or an open brown bag/bowl in your fridge. Be sure that the container is open to prevent condensation build up as this will mold the skin quickly.

Fairytale eggplant is known to be high in dietary fiber, folate, potassium and Vitamin C. So eat up!
