What’s Fresh- Week of March 12th, 2018

What gorgeous weather we’re having out there! It’s the perfect time to start thinking about those fresh and tender spring veggies, and we have plenty of them for you this week. From Moondance farms we have sunflower sprouts, on sale for $3.99, bags of salad greens, parsnips, and yellow and purple carrots as well.  Also we have parsley, sugar snap peas, celery, microgreens, shitake mushrooms, zucchini, tender spring Russian kale from Jonquil Farms, broccoli, green beans, and three types of cabbage: January King, Red Rock and Late Flat Dutch cabbage, asparagus, leeks, watermelon, tomatoes, bananas, d’Anjou pears, fuji apples, pink Cara Cara oranges, sweet tangelos, pomelos in two sizes: small and large, lemons and limes, Harper’s cantaloupe, and Ataulfo mangos.  Also coming in this week we have Mt Erie Gardens’ first of the season beets with tops, & Willowood watermelon radish. For more on Watermelon Radish, take a look at last week’s post in the Ingredient Insights section of our website http://www.anacortesfoodcoop.com/watermelon-radishes-beautiful-inside-and-out/
