New, Peak Season, and Last Call | November 2023

November 2023

November may not stand out  traditionally as big month for produce, however, we have some really exciting new products joining our lists this month. With Thanksgiving coming up, our focus has been sourcing fruits and veggies to fill your holiday table. Look for holiday items like brussels sprouts, green beans, pomegranate, and cranberries. Plus seasonal staples like potatoes, sweet potatoes, winter squash, lettuce, greens, and much more.

Additionally, we are excited to now carry limited quantity items from a new local producer, Getblok Farms, in Aliquippa. Husband and wife, Vinnie and Christina, own and operate this new and highly efficient indoor farm specializing in both fresh greens and herbs as well as some less traditional hydroponic crops like radishes, baby carrots, and Hakurei turnips. As they ramp up their production, we look forward to bringing you lots of their high-quality crops this winter and beyond.

As frost is now upon our Western PA fields, we will have to say goodbye to some more of our local summer crops like peppers, broccoli, cauliflower, and herbs. But we will do our best to source these beloved products from regional and national sources when our Pennsylvania supply finishes for the season–all while continuing to carry as many items as we can from our local farmers.

New, Peak Season, and Last Call | October 2023

October 2023

Ready or not, October brings the first frosts to Western Pennsylvania each year. Along with that comes one of the more dramatic shifts in produce as well. If you have not had your fill of summer fruits and veggies, do not delay. The local produce availability is about to shift seasons. But do not fear, we have a large network of local and regional farms that will keep us well supplied with an amazing assortment as the seasons change.  There are actually a lot of great items that will be new to the list this month as well.

Incoming: Some serious seasonal favorites will return this month: broccoli, cauliflower, spinach, and napa cabbage. We will also rotate in different varieties of items that we are currently carrying–Olympic Giant Asian pears, rainbow carrots, French fingerlings, Koginut and Angel Hair squash all come to mind. Other fun items like radicchio, rainbow chard, and fresh ginger will find their way to Harvie this month too. Oh, and some unsung heroes like kohlrabi and celeriac will be there for us as the weather gets colder as well. 

Outgoing: Well, I guess this will come as no surprise, but our long run of fresh berries is about to end. Be sure to check out our sustainably grown frozen berries from Stahlbush Island Farms as a great alternative. Most of the sensitive summer vegetables–eggplant, zucchini, sweet corn, green beans–are on their way out soon. Herbs like basil and parsley may also depart (although we are working to source some locally grown indoor herbs soon–stay tuned!). Notice, however, that I did not throw tomatoes on this outgoing list just yet. Thanks to indoor production, we should be able to keep some local tomatoes around until the end of the year or so.
