There are lots of reasons to anxiously await the coming of spring. For us there’s no better reason than the bounty of gorgeous fruits and veggies Mother Nature bestows on us at this time of year. Delicate ramps, tender and vibrant asparagus, seemingly impenetrable (but then magically melt-in-your-mouth!) artichokes…peas, beets, strawberries…they’re all colorful reminders that the Earth is in renewal mode. Add some of these beautiful specimens to your routine in the next month for the full spring experience.
Note: Be sure to check the weekly flyer for produce specials when you come in to shop…you might be in for a great deal on your favorite springtime produce.
