CSA Distribution Tonight!

Posted 10/6/2020 1:23pm by Rachel Nass.

Hi All,

Hope everyone is well! Our pickup location has returned to 15 East 27th Street, between 5th Ave and Madison Ave. See below for this week's produce list: 

  • Spinach Mizuna – an Asian Green that has a slight peppery flavor with a hint of spice.  It’s great in salads, stir-fry and soups.  See below for a few recipes.
  • White Onions
  • Pac Choi
  • Butternut Squash
  • Hakurei Turnips – (aka Tokyo Turnips) The wonderful white, smooth roots are actually part of the brassica family.  They have a delicious sweet flavor, and unlike other turnips do not need to be cooked.  Try them in a salad!
  • Jerusalem Artichokes (sunchokes)
  • Orange Carrots
  • Russet Potatoes
  • Broccoli
