PSFC Produce Update for July 19, 2007

There are many changes on the local front:

Organic and conventional green peppers are now local

Minimally Treated fruits from Hepworth Farm:
Cherries have ended
Peaches and Methley plums are new
Apricots start 7/24

New organic local items:
Suyo, tasty jade, striped Armenian, regular, kirby and lemon cucumbers
Green and yellow beans
Nappa, green, red and savoy cabbages
Stunning (but limited) green and burgundy okra
Red and yellow spring (yeah, summer) onions
Cherry, grape, red and yellow plum, heirloom, red and yellow tomatoes
Long hot peppers
Various eggplants

Corn—All of the organic corn arriving on Friday 7/20 is locally grown, and we may be able to source all of it locally soon.

Peaches—We haven't been pleased with the quality of the conventional peaches in the last 2 weeks. We may try again soon, but in the meantime can offer an excellent Eastern peach with the minimally treated one from Hepworth Farm.

Garlic Scape supplies will end next week.

New local items coming next week:
Blueberries from Grindstone Farm (the ones that say "Grown for the Park Slope Food Coop" on the label)
