Happy New Year Produce Lovers! It’s a beautiful,cold January day and we are recovering from a busy holiday season here at the Co-op.
Brownfield Orchard is working through their fall storage crops,putting them on sale while the quality is still good. This week look for a good deal on one of our favorite apples,Organic Pink Ladies –$1.69 lb. These small,crisp,pink-blushed apples are an excellent fresh eating apple,with a juicy crunch and good sweet-tart flavor. Organic Gala Apples are also on sale –$1.49 lb. Smaller in size than many varieties,Galas are a good “lunch box”apple,crunchy and sweet.
