In keeping with the warm, soulful flavors of classic Oktoberfest, this week’s lineup takes a trip to Bavaria with such favorites as smoky bratwurst links, fresh pumpernickel bread and tangy sauerkraut. Complemented by an array of fall all-stars like Autumn Frost winter squash, red carrots and cabbage, Spitzenberg apples and baby potatoes to incorporate into comforting side dishes, this box also includes farm-fresh eggs, kiwi berries and a bevy of salad greens, plus Sauk Farm apple cider and and a vibrant, crimson-red Cabernet Sauvignon—prost!
