Meet this week's vegetables

  • Torpedo onions — Prized in Mediterranean cuisine, these fine-grained onions have a great texture and flavour.
  • Thibodeau du Comté Beauce Bean — Originally from Comté de Beauce in Quebec, with a unique coloring.
  • 1 pint mixed new potatoes — German butterballs, French fingerlings and Russian blues
  • 1 pint mixed cherry tomatoes
  • 2 heads of garlic
  • Mixed heirloom tomatoes
  • Red Malabar Spinach — Another summer spinach with a vine growing habit. An heirloom variety from India, Red Malabar makes a great addition to stir-frys, lasagna, or just on it's own. You can eat it raw, but we prefer it cooked, and you can use the whole plant, including the stem.
  • Minnesota midget melon
