Yukina Savoy: Don’t shy away from the Superstar of a winter green! Though the stalks look a little like celery, the flavor is much nicer. Rinse and tear into smaller pieces before throwing into your favorite sauté, spinach dip, stuffed chicken breasts, etc. You can’t really go wrong.
Rainbow Carrots: Think of a recipe that calls for baby carrots or traditional chopped carrots and sub them for rainbow carrots. You’ll liven up the color of the dish as well as the flavor. Try using rainbow carrots in minced in mirepoix, shredded in coleslaw, or sliced in Vietnamese pho.
Texas Limes: You’re getting a whole pound of local limes in your box this week, and you have to promise right now that you’ll make a limeade! Check our Pinterest page for fantastic spiced limeade recipes.
Green Radishes: Sometimes called Japanese or Chinese green radishes, you’ll be blown away when you cut open into this rare variety and see its beautiful interior. Its flavor is common to more common radishes, though.
The Local Box is the only basket you can't customize - it's a selection of super fresh, all local and sustainably grown produce straight from local farms. Contents rotate weekly and sometimes even daily! We'll send a list of items in the box and where they came from. The Local Box contents are announced every Friday on our website and Saturday morning in our newsletter. A picture will be posted every Friday that may contain some or all of the following week's local items.
Ordering is Easy
Don't be intimidated! Everyone can enjoy a different box each week of fresh, in-season fruits and veggies. Here's an easy way to tackle it:
