THE FARM AT SUNNYSIDE FOR THURSDAY AUGUST 6TH

Field Update: We have ORGANIC heirloom tomatoes! The season for these gems are short so make sure you get a taste of 'em! 

Certified organic produce from The Farm at Sunnyside, which is just 75 miles from Washington DC. The large veggie bag is great for the person who eats most veggie-filled meals at home or the couple who cooks some meals at home.

The veggie bags for Thursday 8/6 will delight you with summer's abundance! 

8/6 SMALL VEGGIE BAG 

Farmer Stacey says "Cold rice salads are an easy, tasty way to incorporate a whole mix of veggies into your meal. Cook your favorite kind of rice and then put in the fridge to chill. Stir-fry or grill the beans or shishitos until they are browned and soft. Chop the cucumber and tomatoes into medium-sized chunks. Either cook the peppers with the beans or shishitos or leave them raw - your choice! Whisk up a zesty dressing of soy sauce, lime juice, minced garlic, chives, and sesame oil. Toss it all together and top with toasted sesame seeds or peanuts! " Pair with Sons Kimchi for an added umami bomb!

  • 1 bunch chives - Onion-y and mild, this herb is a classic on top of an omelet or whisked into a salad dressing.
  • 1 bag beans or 1 box shishitos - These flat Romano beans are crunchy and delicious raw, grilled, steamed, or braised. The shishitos fry up quickly in hot oil with some GARLIC.
  • 1 head garlic - It's fresh and mild, garlic goes with everything!
  • 1 lb cucumbers - Perfect for a cool and refreshing snack or mix with the TOMATOES and PEPPERS for a chunky chopped salad.
  • 2 lb tomatoes - Slice 'em up and layer with mozzarella for a caprese or layer on toast with mayo for a classic summer sandwich.
  • 4 peppers (sweet and hot mix) - Purple, green, or red, these early peppers are sweet and vegetal. A jalapeno or fresno can add some heat to your meal.
8/6 LARGE VEGGIE BAG 

Farmer Stacey says "Fried eggplant is one of life's joys, in my opinion! Eggplant parmesan is a fantastic way to showcase this delicious vegetable. Make a breading station with flour, egg, and panko breadcrumbs. Dredge eggplant slices in the flour and then dip in the beaten egg. Finally coat with the breadcrumbs and fry or bake until brown and crispy. In a baking dish, layer the fried eggplant slices with tomato slices, basil, and cheese. Bake until warmed through and the cheese is bubbly!"

  • 1 bunch basil - A summer flavor that plays well with pasta and pizza, TOMATOES and SQUASH.
  • 2 eggplant - Grill in slices or bread them and fry for the eggplant parm dish described above by farmer Stacy :)
  • 1 box cherry tomatoes - Red, yellow, purple, or pink, these little tomatoes are like drops of sunshine! Eat 'em all fresh or make veggie kebabs with SQUASH and ONIONS on skewers.
  • 2 onions - These fresh spring onions are super sweet and are delicious raw and cooked!
  • 1 lb squash or cucumbers - Squash is the true jack-of-all-trades, put it in pasta sauce, on the grill, shaved thinly raw on a salad, the list goes on. The cucumbers are a refreshing snack.
  • 1 fennel - Aromatic and sweet, fennel pairs well with ONIONS for a flavorful base to a pot of beans.
  • 2 lb tomatoes - Slice 'em up and layer with mozzarella for a caprese or layer on toast with mayo for a classic summer sandwich.
  • 4-5 peppers (sweet and hot mix) - Purple, green, or red, these early peppers are sweet and vegetal. A jalapeno or fresno can add some heat to a salsa with TOMATOES and ONIONS.
  • 4-5 apples - These Pristine apples are our earliest variety and have a tart-sweet flavor and super crisp texture
The Farm at Sunnyside is managed by Stacey and Casey. We first met them at the Arlington Farmers Market in 2013 when starting Number 1 Sons. Stacey and Casey are phenomenal farmers and managers tending to the health of their land, soil, staff and our community with their nutritious + delicious vegetables.

The Farm at Sunnyside borders the Shenandoah National Park - read more about their conservation efforts on their website. We love visiting Sunnyside and learning about cover crops, compost, field rotation, food safety processes, and working with a seasonal farm staff - Stacey and Casey excel at all these things!

The farm may substitute veggies if they run out. This happens rarely, but does happen from time time. Produce is measured by weight, so quantity may vary slightly from pictures. Sorry, we can't offer substitutions right now. Sunny Side
