We're proud to be offering locally grown Lamb Hass Avocados and Fuerte Avocados for $3.99/lb, while these precious supplies last.
Produce Manager George has put together a fine list of delicious specials to get you through this holiday weekend with an eye for all things BBQ, picnic, and long summer days and nights! Thanks George! And thank you farmers!
** you might be wondering about the shortage of locally grown tomatoes in the Co-op this summer.... remember that late rain in May, and those gray gray days..? Well sadly many of our farmers have experienced the dreaded tomato blight, a disease that happens when it's just toooooo wet and gray for too long... finger's crossed that with this sunshine we'll get some mid-season gems at the Co-op! For now we're grateful for Beefsteak Tomatoes from Padua Farm in Venture, $1.69/lb and the only local tomatoes we've seen yet...**
