Summer 2017 - Week #13

Featured Producer: Captain Tony Naples of Starbird Fish

Where can you find some of the freshest, tastiest fish in Burlington? From Captain Tony Naples of Starbird fish, who spends his summers running a 58-foot commercial fishing boat in Alaska. Captain Tony sources three different varieties of salmon (king, coho, and sockeye) as well as cod, rockfish, and halibut, all sustainability caught in the seas of southeast Alaska, flash frozen, and then shipped to Burlington for customers to enjoy. You can find the captain at various Vermont farmers' markets and retailers, and we also enjoy having his fish in the baskets we send to you!

Eat This First: Chard, mesclun, and arugula. A big summery salad is never a bad idea, or try tossing chopped greens with hot pasta or rice to quickly wilt them into something delicious (like in the lemony arugula pasta recipe below)!
