As July transitions into August, we have started to reach the pinnacle of summer as a bounty of crops seemingly ripen at once—sweet corn, crisp lettuce greens, summer squash (and their blossoms!) and more. Thus, this week’s box pays tribute to the summer harvest with a beautiful assortment of local produce, plus Fairhaven Mill’s organic buckwheat flour, farm-fresh eggs, fragrant herbs and a wonderful assortment of antipasti-ready provisions, from rosemary-olive oil crackers and stone-ground mustard to briny green olives and alpine-style filomena cheese. Bon appetit!
