We were really looking forward to August this year because typically that's when the greatest variety of local fruits & veggies are available. This August certainly didn't disappoint! We have been able to enjoy a variety of local fruit/veg, like perfectly ripe tomatoes from North Valley Organics (this week Freshie's of New Mexico) for the entire month and it's not over yet! Not to mention the juicy peaches from Rancho de Santa Fe and Freshies. This week we have more local variety filling out our Shares: eggplant, sweet peppers, basil, and pears! Although August is (quickly) coming to a close, we still have months of abundance ahead of us as we look toward the flavors of the fall harvest season. It's time to get excited about our local green chile, crisp apples and hearty winter squashes. We feel lucky to be connected with farmers that work hard year round so that we can truly enjoy the flavors of each season.
