From the first turning leaves to the produce in the garden, this week is all about color—and what a wealth of vibrant options, from purple Italian eggplant and sweet red peppers to cranberry shelling beans and rainbow Swiss chard. Thus, this box embraces the crisp, soulful flavors of early fall as they converge with late summer favorites like heirloom tomatoes, prune plums and fragrant melon. Also on board to help you craft a satisfying supper: Our signature crème fraîche and Pomodoro bread, plus a ruby-spiced apple shrub to craft a well-deserved cocktail. Enjoy!
