New local organic produce:

All lettuces (green and red romaine, green and red leaf, boston, and mixed
variety of baby lettuces)

Other vegetables-collards, green and purple kale, bok choy, Chinese cabbage,
radishes, mint, bunched or baby arugula (both limited), broccoli rabe (limited),
sugar snap peas, Japanese bunched turnips, garlic scallions, loose spinach,
and yellow zucchini are all from local farms.
Parsley, cilantro, chards, herbs, lacinato kale, and baby bok choy are
starting to arrive from the local farms, and will soon be entirely local.

Organic strawberries from our closest local farm, Hepworth Farm in New York,
have begun their brief season

Organic fruits from tropical southern Florida: Lychee nuts, and sapodillas.

Not organic and certainly not local food from around the globe: chanterelle
mushrooms from Europe, and clementines from Chile.

Organic grapes have returned. Prices are still high, but the flavor is
already there (we avoided the early sour weeks). All seedless, green and
black are in stock, and red will arrive 6/15.
