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.
