  • Our veggie guarantee: if you think something's not right, let customer service know!!
  • Items are subject to change depending on weather and farm availability. 
  • Tip: Any item you would cook, you can also freeze.
  • Tip 2: A dull knife conspires against you and slows you down. A sharp knife makes your food taste better (and look better, too). NY Times
  • Any green needs to be as dry as possible, wrapped in a paper towel in a plastic bag and kept in the fridge crisper.

Green Beans These cook in under 10 minutes. Add lemon, garlic and butter. Easy. Do not wash until ready to use. You can freeze
green beans—blanch for 3 minutes, plunge in cold water for
3 minutes, drain, drop in a plastic bag and in the freezer
they go.  Markristo Farm (CO) 
Storage: Up to 5 days in the crisper. 
Parmesan Crusted Green Beans 
Ingredients:1 pound thin green beans1 candy onion 
Extra-virgin olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
Directions:
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Trim off the tough end of the beans and arrange the beans and onions on a nonstick cookie sheet. Drizzle with olive oil season with salt and pepper, to taste. Sprinkle the cheese evenly over the top and bake until the cheese melts and forms a crisp shell over the beans and onions, about 10 minutes. Let sit a few minutes for the cheese to cool slightly. Lift the beans and onions out onto a platter and serve.
 
Candy Onions are sweeter, milder onions, though not quite as tooth-achey as their name implies. Top your Fourth of July burgers with 'em or eat them by themselves. Too delicious. Barber Farm (OG) 
Storage: A few weeks in the fridge. 
Swiss Chard Cooked chard is a great stand-in for spinach. The stems can be steamed or grilled like asparagus. While Swiss Chard is naturally bitter, cooking mellows the flavor. Unless the stems are tender, remove them and just prepare the leaves. You can prepare chard in a jiff by sautéing it in olive oil with some garlic—toss in some chili for a little zip. Barber Farm (OG)
Storage: Up to a week in the crisper.

Parsley  is seemingly the most popular herb to cook with (hands down in Mediterranean cuisine). It derives its name from the Greek word meaning "rock celery" because they are plant cousins (probably not an actual horticultural term). Thistledown Farm (OG)
Storage: Up to a week in the crisper. 
Sprinkle fresh chopped parsley on basically anything, especially with lemon & garlic on chicken or fish.

Yellow Peaches A summer staple we can't wait to sink our teeth into. We're super excited to have Love Apple's peaches this year after the farm suffered a tragic fire and was out commission. So happy to buy from these guys again! Love Apple Farm (IPM) or Klein Fruit Farm (FAM)
Storage: 3-5 days in the pantry.

Lettuce Put fresh salads on your table as often as you can. For a more filling and flavorful boost add roasted nuts, died cranberries, roasted sunflower seeds, shaved parmesan, or chick peas. Farm at Miller's Crossing (CO)
Storage: Up to a week in the crisper, wrap lettuce in a paper towel within the plastic bag to keep dry. 
Easy Salad Dressings (to know by heart)
Garlic Scapes are the immature flower stalks of garlic. Scapes are only available for a few weeks out of the year so we get them while we can. Use them as you would use garlic or scallions. They can be eaten cooked or raw. You can also freeze garlic scapes. Shaul Farm (FAM)
Storage: Freeze 'em!
