Fall is an incredible time of year. The leaves change color, the air is crisp, and we get to pull out our favorite sweaters from the back of the closet. Also, we get to enjoy the produce that helps keep us warm as it cools down. Check out our fall produce guide to learn a bit more about what's to come from Boston Organics this season.
We know, we know - it's not quite the end of summer yet. But with Labor Day just around the corner, we know many Boston Organics customers are starting to prepare for the impending school year and we are here to make sure everyone is ready to rise and shine for back-to-school! Your produce boxes will be full of fruits and veggies to form the base for healthy meals, and our wide selection of add-ons will help make sure you have everything you need without the hassle of the grocery store.
Last week we shared a bit about what a local and sustainable food system means to us and farmers and farm workers are the bedrock of that supply chain. We want to take some time to celebrate and appreciate many of the growers and farm teams that allow us to do the work that we do and to enjoy some of the most delicious organic produce in the region.
The Patriots are headed to the Super Bowl (again). Borrow a page or two from the Boston Organics playbook and prepare recipes that are sure to make you MVP of the viewing party.
We're always looking for opportunities to improve, to give our users more value. Recently, we started asking if there were any changes that we could make to our weekly newsletter that would make it more valuable to our customers?
This week's box features shiitake mushrooms, which are crazy nutritious but also delicious. If you're a mushroom fan, shiitakes are likely one your list of favorites (they're so much more flavorful and complex than boring white button mushrooms!). You'll encounter shiitakes in various forms in a lot of Asian cuisine, like miso soup and many stirfries. Today we've got a recipe that calls for roasting the mushrooms and we think you're going to love it.

We may be moving into fall but that doesn’t mean that we are no longer getting new items from all of our wonderful farm partners.
