Habanada Peppers, Winter Squash & Pears

Autumn Market Update

Iacopi Dried Beans from Half Moon Bay, CA: if you’re in the know, then you know- these beans are in a class of their own: creamy, no split skins, incredible depth of flavor, don’t really need soaking.  Cranberry, Borlotti (yes there’s a difference), Gigante and Butter Beans are now in.

Market updates: winter squash has begun, including delicata, red kuri, winter luxury pumpkin, and honeynut.  It’s also a great time for fruit: late stone fruit season is not to be missed: honeypunch pluots, emerald beaut plums and Somerset peachesConcord grapes are going strong.  We have a few native-style fall berries from Canada including raspberry and strawberry, though both will wind down soon.  Native cape gooseberries are excellent, as are black mission figs. Cranberries just started, but seriously, you should wait a few weeks until we get into peak season ones- if you can.

Pears are starting to come in: comice and Bartlett are in stock.  Expected Friday: seckel, forelle, and native Asian pears from Lookout Farm.  Expected Monday 9/23: first of the season French butter pears.  This weekend: Warren pears from Frog Hollow.

Apples: Scott Farm heirloom apples from Vermont are expected around the end of next week, 9/26-ish.  Currently, we have Macintosh and Honeycrisp.
