Certified Organic produce from The Farm at Sunnyside, which is just 75 miles from Washington DC. The small veggie bag for Tuesday 4/28 delivery will delight you with
1 bunch radishes (french or red) : while these are great eaten raw on their own, you can also cook radishes. Have you ever tried a radish risotto? finish that risotto with a drizzle of pesto utilizing the radish greens :)
1 bunch garlic chives : a great addition to a stir-fry or salad dressing
1 bunch Asian salad turnips : we love to eat these sweet treats raw but you can also roast or saute them
1/2 lb salad mix (lettuce, arugula, baby kale) : Farmer Stacey says "this is our favorite time of year for salads." We agree, Stacey, we agree :)
1/3 lb pea shoots : the sweet taste of spring. These are a great addition to salads or tasty quick stir-fry.
The Farm at Sunnyside is managed by Stacey and Casey. We first met them at the Arlington Farmers Market in 2013. 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. You may have eaten their vegetables at the Dupont Circle Farmers Market, Falls Church Farmers Market, The Dabney or A Rake's Progress :)
The farm 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 managing 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 or honor specific vegetable requests right now.
