Marada’s Dispatches: Balsamic Strawberry Gelato, Grey Pearmain apples, frozen raspberries …

This week we bring you an expanded list of long-awaited items…organic rolled oats from Aurora Mills.   Heirloom apples from The Apple Farm, not to mention their delicious organic cider.  We have head lettuce and garlic scape puree (frozen).  Maine grown frozen raspberries are on the list in 1# bags.  We will continue to offer cranberries through Christmas.  Two squashes are on sale.  We are going to rotate the sale through each type of squash week by week, so buy when it is offered.  This week’s sale squash are organic butternut and Maine grown red kuri.

Maple’s gelato has Rum Raisin back on deck, not to mention a new flavor:  Balsamic Strawberry. The COMOC crew is anxious to try this ourselves, it has been described as, “A creamsicle for adults.”  Mmmm.

Finally, too, our favorite Chantenay carrots are harvested and packed.  This year we have a special treat of baby Chantenay’s as well.  These finger (or smaller) size carrots are the true baby carrots with the right sweet flavor and smooth texture.  The on-farm grading criteria?  If the carrot doesn’t warrant an adoring ‘Aaaawwww..’ it doesn’t go in the baby bag.  You won’t be disappointed.

Some standards have returned to the list: organic delicata and organic carnival squash.  Organic spartan apples.  Organic red potatoes in 12X3# bags.

It’s a good week to read the list thoroughly.

Talk to you Thursday.
