It's already Week 14 of your Summer Share!

September is almost here, and at this in-between-seasons time of year the bags are bursting with all the sweet flavors of summer (like tomatoes, corn and stone fruits) but also some early fall apples, squash and grapes. Don't forget to stock up on everything you need for cookouts for the big holiday weekend! To guarantee your order, place a Special Order for anything you've got to have on the grill on Monday. 

What's in the bag: all the bags this week have a large head of cabbage, colorful sweet peppers, corn and a bunch of fruit (watermelon, peaches and plums) as well as the summer regulars--zucchini, onions, and tomatoes. The Vegetarian and Vegan Share subscribers will have some broccoli and apples and the Omnivores will have some ground beef, perfect for making burgers this Labor Day Weekend. The Large Share subscribers will also get the first grapes of the season-- a seedless variety--for you to pop into the freezer for a quick, sweet snack, and some tomatillos (also known as "husk tomatoes"). Try them in a salsa verde or in the crockpot with some chicken breasts. 

This week's bag is big and heavy, so if you ever need help carrying out to your car just ask your greeter and they'd be happy to lend a hand!

Thanks to everyone who has already signed up for the Winter Share-- we're really excited about this coming season and it's a real help to all of our farmers during the colder months. If you haven't signed up yet, here are all the details on the program-- we'd love to have you along!

Dragon Tongue Beans are coming in your shares this week: enjoy them sliced raw in a salad or very lightly steamed.

September Payment Reminder coming up.

Rocky River's stop is moving across the street from Market.

As of two weeks ago, we moved the Rocky River Stop to be down the street from Market restaurant (our former location) on Ingersoll and Linda to accommodate the bigger truck.
