Carrots & Herbs

 Crunchy Colorful Carrots
This week we'll have our final crop of carrots from Judy & Roland Cutlip at Windy Acre Farm. Haven't they been delicious! We've all heard that carrots are high in beta carotene, but did you know that they increase saliva and supply essential minerals, vitamins and enzymes that aid in digestion? Eating carrots regularly may help prevent gastric ulcers and other digestive disorders. Among the many beneficial phytochemicals that carrots contain is a phytonutrient called falcarinol, which may reduce the risk of colon cancer and help promote overall colon health.
What else can you expect in this week's share?
Likely the Last of the Cherry & Pear Tomatoes!
Plus: Cucumbers, Greens, Onions, Peppers, Potatoes...
What's in the Fridge at 503 Third Avenue?
This week, we'll have just about everything a veggie-lover could want: basil, beans, beets, boxed lettuce, cabbage, swiss chard, collards, fresh herbs, garlic, kale, red & yellow onions, sweet & hot peppers, Red Pontiac & Kennebec potatoes, shallots, tomatoes, and tromboncino squash.
Come see us 12-5pm Thursday!
