Downtown Market Fresh Box – July 6

This week’s Fresh Box contained:

Basil – Nature Village Farm, Richmond

Mixed Kale Bunch – Abundant Acre Farm, Abbotsford

Mini Romaine Lettuce – One Love Farm, Lillooet

Broccolini – One Love Farm – cook like broccoli or like most greens,  sauté with garlic and olive oil

Mini Zucchini, Yellow Squash and Patty Pan Squash – Abundant Acre Farm

Cherries – Rai Farms, Osoyoos

Tomatoes – Campari, red cherry or mini Romas – Taves Family Farm, Abbotsford

Strawberry Jam – Jordan’s Jam, Burnaby

It’s too hot to cook!  Make some tomato, basil and mozzarella skewers or a fresh salad with the romaine lettuce and perhaps a strawberry vinaigrette.

Headed on a road trip around BC this summer?  We included a brochure listing farmers across the province – a great piece to keep in the glove compartment.
