This week's Fresh Deals include: fresh ginger root, perfect for tea, curry, stir-fries, and fresh juice; locally-grown zucchini and creamy Hass avocados, and the current star of the produce section - local finger bananas in 2 varieties! These rare half-sized bananas are a refreshing alternative to the larger supermarket Cavendish bananas, and make for the perfect snack. They have a firm, silky interior, and their flavor is brighter and juicier than those of the Cavendish, with notes of vanilla and honey, too! Talk about a banana flavor explosion.

Selection Tip - these lil bananas have thicker skin than large bananas, so the flesh doesn't bruise very easily, even if the outside looks a bit spotty. You also want to choose bananas that are completely yellow, since any green-ness will mean astringency!


 

 

This week's Fresh Deals flyer has an enviable color palette 💜 Get in those anthocyanins with that gorgeous purpley hue on our red cabbage, blackberries, and selection of pluots! And cauliflower, while note colorful, is versatile and nutritious in its own right - add some bright spices for a vibrant meal!
