Here’s what you’ll find in your box this week:
Black Futsu & Delicata Squash
Squash season has arrived! This week, enjoy gorgeous Delicata as well as Black Futsu, a rare Japanese specialty squash with a unique warty black skin and a nutty, buttery flavor that is enhanced when roasted.
Freshly Sliced Wholegrain Bread
Made in downtown Snohomish by our favorite local bakery, this round loaf is made with locally-milled Shepherd’s Grain flour and 7 different whole grains.
Two Birds One Stone 2019 Rouge Carignan
The juicy black-fruit tones of this French wine carry to the palate and turn to tart black plum on the finish, while an earthy oak accent and a dusting of tannins frame it all.
Farm Fresh Eggs
Our small flock of heritage breed laying hens gives us fresh eggs in beautiful shades of brown and green. With the shorter days of fall, the girls are up with the sun to roam the outdoors where they still enjoy the warm afternoons. Bedtime is coming much earlier now, as we see them heading into their house to roost as the sun is going down.
Bert’s Bites Chunky Almond Snacks
Crafted with whole almonds, dried cranberries, whole grain oats, cinnamon, and organic maple syrup, this addictive mix is baked in small batches—eat it by the handful, or add it to a salad!
Fragrant D’Anjou pears.
Fresh Organic Greens
Rosalba radicchio, escarole, Lacinato kale, rainbow Swiss chard, pea shoots, and cantaloupe shoots.
Seasonal Organic Vegetables
This week’s produce selection also includes Chioggia beets, Jimmy Nardello frying peppers, and a trio of Italian heirloom onions—Tropea, and red and yellow Cipollini onions.
Fresh Garden Herbs
Garlic, thyme and rosemary from the walled garden and greenhouse at Bella Luna Farms.
