The Farm at Sunnyside - Tuesday October 6th Lineup

Certified organic produce from The Farm at Sunnyside, which is just 75 miles from Washington DC. 

Trying some 'fusion' food is a fun way to mix up dinnertime, especially when it's Korean and Mexican flavors melded together! If you get cilantro, make a quick slaw with finely shredded cabbage, some thinly sliced asian pears, cilantro, ginger, and hot pepper. Roast some sweet potato cubes. Make a taco filling with your favorite meat or beans and add some garlic and gochujang for some funk and flavor. Stuff into a taco shell and top with crunchy radish or turnip!

The Large Veggie Box for Tuesday 10/6 will delight you with:

  • 1 bunch cilantro or lemongrass - cilantro goes well with Asian or Mexican inspired cooking; chop and add to stir-frys or tacos! Lemongrass adds lemony freshness to a curry or soup.
  • 1 bag spinach - Join Popeye's ranks with this dark green leafy vegetable! Eat fresh in a salad with crunchy RADISHES or TURNIPS on top or add to a soup. 
  • 1 head napa cabbage or green cabbage  
  • 1 piece ginger (2-3 inches) - Freshly dug, this is unlike the standard grocery store variety. Full of floral, acidic, and citrusy flavor, this ginger has very thin skin and is mild enough to eat raw.
  • 1 head garlic - A clove of garlic a day keeps the doctor away? In any case it's delicious and spruces up any dish!
  • 1-1.5 lbs sweet potatoes - We can't deny fall is here when sweet potatoes show up! Orange and sweet, these tubers roast up beautifully to top a salad or rice bowl. 
  • 1 bunch radishes or hakurei turnips - Radishes are back - we can hardly believe it! Crunchy and slightly peppery, toss these on top of a SPINACH salad with ASIAN PEARS. Hakurei turnips are mild and sweet and just as crunchy!
  • 3-5 hot peppers - Green or red or orange, hot peppers are a great way to add heat as well as flavor to a dish. 
  • 4-5 asian pears -  Crisp and sweet, these pears are juicy and make a delightful snack.
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.
