We are in full-on fall at the Farmstand these days! Plenty of WINTER SQUASH have arrived the last couple of weeks: we got a fresh shipment of DELICATA, BABY BLUE HUBBARD, and SPAGHETTI SQUASH from Lancaster Farm Fresh. We have some ACORN SQUASH and loads of POTATOES from Brooke-Lee Farm. The ‘Stand will be full of SWEET POTATOES of just about every kind—small ones, big ones, even fingerlings—if there is a sweet potato out there we probably have it! Some other special treats this week include gorgeous HAWAIIAN GINGER (one of our staff favorites!) from Blue Moon Acres as well as BROCCOLI from Oak Grove Farm and CELERY ROOT from Blooming Glen. Oh, and we have lots of PAW PAW’s coming in from our foraging expert, the one and only David Siller. Just yesterday, we received a delivery from Tap Root Farm. I was so impressed with how beautiful everything was that I felt it important to make a special note. Take a look through our product list but some noteworthy items are the gorgeous bunches of CARROTS and BEETS, as well as picture perfect bulbs of PURPLE SOFTNECK and GERMAN HARDNECK GARLIC. We also got lots of other goodies so be on the lookout!
If you’re still hanging on to that summer feeling, be sure to come and grab your last-of-the-season peaches, tomatoes and watermelons (it’s getting really close) and start easing into fall with some Subarashi Kudamono ASIAN PEAR CIDER and all the goods you could need for warm (local) apple pie!
