Spring is a busy season for New England farmers and it takes planning and persistence to keep up with the demands of outdoor growing. They’ve certainly been successful because we’re able to find more crop diversity! Next week we'll see new produce in deliveries like eggplant, red bell peppers, black radishes, oyster mushrooms, and sunchokes!
This week’s featured add-ons are local greens, organic overnight oat packets, and eco-friendly detergent strips. The Boston Organics Community uses organic produce delivery as the most convenient way to sustainably source their food and other grocery items.
Leafy greens are coming into peak season! These greens are delicious on their own but for folks looking for an extra dash of excitement we’ve got a perfect recipe formula for you.
Ramadan is a Muslim holiday where people do not eat from sunrise to sun down. It’s a time for self-reflection, and giving back to less fortunate. Meals are served before sunrise, called suhoor, and after sunset, called iftar, and eaten with family or with the local community.
Welcome to the Purchaser’s Corner! Here you’ll find periodic updates from our Purchasing Team on what’s new and exciting from our farm partners, as well insight into the world of our farmers.
Passover is a Jewish holiday that spans over 7 days, and the first night starts this week! On the first night of Passover, families gather for Seder; a meal that includes special symbolic dishes and rituals.

The simplest dashi is vegan and is essentially just boiling kombu (seaweed) in hot water. Dashi is delicious soup base for your next homemade ramen, miso soup, cooking liquid for sauces, or a protein marinade!
Seaweed! Ok maybe it's not so secret. The vast ocean is full of sea creatures and vegetation, and seaweed is one you've got to stock in your pantry. Snack on seaweed chips, add it as the main component to your salad or simmer and make the best vegan broth!
Spring has officially sprung! The growing season is getting a full head of steam again and the excitement is palatable as we look forward to more local greens, herbs, sunchokes, and garlic scapes!
