fullsizeoutput_4ce8.jpeg

Thanks to those of you who emailed to tell us you enjoyed our first weekly preview! We love being able to share what we're getting ahead of time, to whet your appetite. And, we know that on occasion, due mostly to the weather, we will still have an item or two that's up in the air on Friday, so the emails may sometimes contain a TBD. 

Have you noticed that we've started adding a bit more info to our recipes? Now you can easily see if a recipe is vegan (V), vegetarian (veg), gluten-free (GF), or dairy-free (DF). We'll make sure that each week, we provide at least one recipe in each of those categories.

As we dive into the summer season, we're experimenting with something new! From now on, on Fridays, we're going to send you the list of items you'll be receiving the following week. Why? So that you have more time to plan and shop over the weekend!

Below that list, you'll find a list of dishes that our cooking team is planning to make with our basket, on Monday. Why do we cook on Monday? Because that way, we get to use the same fresh and delicious items that you'll be receiving, from the same farms!

We'll post photos to Instagram so you can follow along while we're cooking, and on Monday afternoon or early evening, we'll send out the detailed recipes, and a shopping list.
