This product is currently sold out.
In response to the recent closures of the farmers market and many other establishments we have put together an offering of freshly harvested produce from our pal Chris at French Farms and other local farms, available to pick up anytime from an un-manned produce cooler in Biscayne Park.
Each produce box will include the following:
1/2 pound bag of salanova lettuce mix from French Farms
1/2 pound bag of arugula from French Farms
1 pound fioretto sprouting cauliflower from French Farms
1 bunch french breakfast radishes from French Farms
1 pint vine ripened cherry tomatoes from Michael Borek farm
1 small head savoy cabbage from Worden Farm
1 bunch carrots from Worden Farm
Every week the contents of the box change just a little bit, so if you've ordered before please read the list above and check out the photos for an accurate count of the exact content of this weeks box. And yes... the boxes are getting bigger! We are incorporating more products from other farms so that you can get more items for your trip to our cooler.
This weeks super special item is Fioretto, an heirloom sprouting cauliflower variety from Italy. This vegetable has quickly become a culinary star in many restaurants because its tender, beautiful, versatile, sweet and delicious. There are a million ways to let this vegetable shine in the kitchen. Steam whole stalks of it in broth then throw in some butter to finish them with a bit of fat browning, or grill them. Roasting brings out the sweetness and whatever you do make sure to use the entire thing. The stalks are part of the vegetable and they are very tender.
A note on food handling: All produce was washed in an Organic Certified sanitizing solution after harvesting, and will be packed into a box when you order it by a farmer wearing a N95 mask and gloves. Our produce cooler is parked in a driveway and not attended by a person, so you wont likely run into anyone during your pickup. Sanitation spray will be waiting for you to use on the door handle before and after pickup.
Attention service industry workers: use code SERVICE at checkout to receive a $7.00 discount on the box. We've got no easy way to ask for proof of that so... we trust you, and we hope this helps even if just a little bit!
