Waterloo Pick Up - Friday, August 8th  
Items in your shopping cart will be ordered on your behalf Tuesday August 5th at 8pm

I've been distracted with a bathroom renovation so despite the delay you can now order fruit and veggies for Tuesday!! I'm looking forward to a quiet weekend eating delicious fruit and ordering what I want for Tuesday and Friday. 
Due to the cooler weather we still have Harrow Diamond Peaches for Tuesday. The Harrow Diamond is a smaller peach that comes away from the stone quite easily (although it is not classified as a free stone). They are delicious! Garnet Beauty Peaches will be next!
One of the things you'll notice about Tree Run Peaches is that they are not all ripe when you get them. Eat the ripe ones right away (yum!) and for the rest, spread them out on newspaper on their side or bottom (not stem down) and not touching each other and they'll ripen over the next few days. Peaches and apricots should stay out of the fridge until ripe (they can get a mealy texture when chilled). When my table is covered in fruit I keep a fan blowing over them to discourage fruit flies from landing. 

Garden Party Organic Grab Bags are now available Tuesdays at Entertaining Elements!!! 

There are three options for you to choose:
  • Juicer Mix - a mix of juicing veg such as: kales, beets, carrots, mints and parsley
    from Garden Party (organic)
  • Mixed Vegetables - a surprise mix of 7-9 fresh organic vegetables equivalent to a half CSA share of Garden Party's Produce.
  • Vegetable Stock Kit - makes 3-4 litres of stock - instructions included (bag) 
Order until Monday at 4pm and stop by for fresh produce at Entertaining Elements in downtown Kitchener from noon to 6pm. You can stop a car momentarily in from of the store as it is a loading zone.
Enjoy all this amazing fruit!

We'll have:

Friday's Pickup

Well, I don't know about you, but my fridge is starting to look a little empty! I need to order some staples! What's on your list?
  • Herbs from The Working Centre have been added! Look for Rosemary, Winter Savory, Leaf Fennel, Dill, Parsley, Basil, Sage, Thyme, Mint, Marjoram and Oregano. Don't forget their delicious pea shoots and microgreens!
  • Dandelion Ice Cream and Raspberry Ice Cream from Mapleton's Dairy. Order yours to be sure to get a pint (or two). Don't forget the other flavours too!
  • Sam Bowman (Bowman's Organic Produce) will be harvesting his entire broccoli crop! Get some to eat and lots  to freeze for winter soups!
  • Caramels from Hugo and Nate are back! They were recently featured in Chatelaine Magazine!
  • Stock up on Tortilla  Chips, Tacos, Tostadas and Corn Tortillas from McKechnie as well as Stone Ground and Mexican Wheat wraps as well as Noodles and Pasta from J&D Peters! We haven't had the full selection in a while, so get what you need this week!
  • Salsa from Barrie's Asparagus to dip your chips! We have mild, medium as well as corn and bean salsa!

A note about our fruit from Niagara

All our Niagara fruit is Tree Run, which means that the fruit is not sent to the grading station. The fruit is picked riper (and tastier) and avoids wax coatings, fungicidal baths and defuzzing in the case of peaches. You will find smaller and larger fruit together in your box. 
Enjoy the ripest fruit first and for the rest, spread your peaches out on newspaper on their side or bottom (not stem down) and not touching each other and they'll ripen over the next few days.
Keep peaches and apricots out of the fridge until they are ripe as they can get a mealy texture when chilled.
