Friday Flash Sale
Local Organic Strawberries! 2 for $5 (1 lb. each) 
Something Good/ Givens (Goleta, CA); Valid Friday 4/26 – Sunday 4/28 

We’re now a few weeks into spring, and it shows! Crops of spring vegetables and berries are emerging after a rainy and chilly winter, and local growers are expecting major activity in the coming weeks.

Carpinteria’s Frecker Farms’ strawberries just arrived and we couldn’t be happier. This top notch, local organic farm run by Alex Frecker grows a ton of organics, but is best known for their sweet berries. Awesome on their own, or pair with mascarpone for a special treat. 

Local blueberries are peaking with this week's supply coming to us from California’s Central Coast region.

Despite the colder weather this past winter, the stone fruit season is looking strong and growers are expecting a great season on most items. Check out what we already have in. 

Treat yourself to the most gorgeous organic purple carrots you’ve ever seen. Fresh from the fields of Capay Valley’s Full Belly Farm, these are a delicious variety called Nantes, grown in fields with loose, sandy soil. Carrots are an exceptional source of carotenes and vitamin A, as well as a great source for beta carotene, an important antioxidant that helps to protect the liver. Carrots can be stored in the refrigerator for 1- 2 weeks  (remove the greens first), though they are most nutritious when eaten right away or juiced.

Gorgeous bunches of organic herbs from Kenter Canyon caught our eye. Oh the possiblities.

Avocado supply is still volatile. We keep mentioning the wet winter, but part of the issue in this season’s California avocado crop has to do with extensive damage resulting from last summer’s heat wave, especially in Ventura County and other parts of the state that grow a lot of avocados. Not only did the heat damage the fruit that was on the tree at the time, but it affected the fruit that was forming and would be picked now. FYI - California avocados are only available now through late summer, but we're on it and will keep you updated.

We've scored organic yellow corn and no doubt summer garden parties and barbecues are on our mind. But first, Cinco de Mayo.

Produce Notes: April 17, 2019

Spruce up your spring, and your holiday tables with selections from this week’s Fresh Deals.


Fuji apples are this week’s Super Fresh Deal. Always a favorite, Fujis offer the color, juice and firmness of a Red Delicious and the heirloom flavor of a Ralls Janet. Excellent for eating, but also perfect for a farm to table Charoset for your Passover seder plate.


Madera, California’s Road 20 Organic Farm brought us gorgeous red spring onions. These long-stem onions are harvested before they reach maturity and resemble scallions but have small onion bulbs at the base. Sweeter and mellower than regular onions, they’re great when eaten raw in a salad or grilled on top of a burger!


Nothing pops more on a plate than purple asparagus. But get it while you can. We’re hearing it’s a short season this year - and purple is the “it” color. For all you purple artichoke lovers, we’re working on it and hoping to have it in by the weekend.


Rhubarb on our minds, and available now. Rhubarb is often considered the darling of the spring season. While it’s technically a vegetable, it’s often prepared as a fruit in culinary practices. Cheers to your rhubarb tart that’s sure to be the stunner of your Easter table!


Over the next couple of weeks to a month, local spring/summer produce should be close to it’s peak. We’re seeing organic watermelon and peaches from Mexico, which tells us California’s bounty is still about 2-3 weeks away.

Produce Notes: April 10, 2019

The transition from winter to summer crops is one of the most difficult times to be sourcing produce, even in California. And this year has proved to be even more challenging with a wetter than usual winter. Weather combined with increased consumer demand has driven up prices and lowered supply - what we’re still seeing with celery. Mexico produce is generally strong and our go-to during these seasonal gaps, but border closures have complicated things even further.

Rest assured, we’re moving to the bright side and not only will you start to see more summer veggies and fruits, you’ll notice that we’re getting back to the majority of it being local!


California blueberries are here and looking gorgeous. Though blackberries are gapping due to lower production yields, we were able to scoop up some gorgeous ones and add them to our Fresh Deals again this week.

 

Though off to a slow start, sugar snap peas are in steady supply. Sugar snap peas are a group of edible podded peas that were developed by breeding a Chinese snow pea with a mutant pea plant. The end result is a snappy sweet pea with thicker walls and plump pods. English peas are in tight supply due to decreased production and sharp increase in demand, but we hope to have them later this week.


Organic yellow corn from Mexico has arrived - a good sign that California crops are not far behind. Pear supplies are steady from Washington and Oregon, with D’Anjou glowing and worthy of a spotlight on this week’s Fresh Deals. D’Anjous are perfect for snacking, baking or adding into salads.


Looking forward, we see sweet red seedless grapes, apricots and cherry season on the horizon. Word is rhubarb is coming later in the season this year, but we’ll be the first to bring it in - only when ready.

Produce Notes: April 3, 2019

Organic asparagus is here, gorgeous, and the co-op’s Super Fresh Deal of the week at $2.99! Add to your favorite spring vegetable risotto dish, or simply coat in olive oil, sprinkle with salt, and roast in a 400°F oven for 8-10 minutes. It’s what we’ll be eating all week and into the weekend.!

 

It’s peak blackberry season in Mexico and we’re loving the organic blackberries that just came in! At $2.99 per pack we likely have the best (always organic!) deal in town.

 

There is nothing better than biting into a raw, ripe tomato and Hans Wilgenburg’s organic tomatoes won’t disappoint. Tomatoes that taste like tomatoes! Be sure to read our feature story.

 

We have a couple of mango varieties featured on this week’s Fresh Deals. Check out the small, kidney-shaped Ataúlfo mangos and let a member of the Produce team know if you’d like to try one in-store! Ataúlfos have a vibrant yellow golden color, delicious flavor, and no stringy fibers in their rich flesh. Like all mangos, Ataúlfos should be left at room temperature until they are ready to eat.  


Looking ahead, we’re excited to be going into the season where the majority of items are California grown. Our local farmers are recovering from low yields due to the recent rains and cold temperatures. Green kale, black kale, and celery, while available at the co-op, are noticeably not as abundant. We’ll keep you posted.

Produce Notes: March 27, 2019


A voluntary recall was announced by Escondido-based Henry Avocados due to a positive test for Listeria monocytogenes. Avocados affected by this recall were packed at this company’s California packing house only. The organic avocados available at the co-op are not affected and are safe for human consumption.


With all the recent rain, wild mushrooms are thriving and we have a wide variety of fresh organic mushrooms and mushroom supplements on our shelves! Mushrooms, like many fresh items, are best used within a couple of days. To maximize shelf life, store them in a paper bag in a refrigerated area to allow them to breathe.  


We’re transitioning into tomato season! Look for the first local tomatoes of the season coming in from Wilgenburg Greenhouses in next week’s Fresh Deals (starting April 3rd).


Spring has sprung and supply of California-grown asparagus is steady! We also welcomed the first grapes of the season this week. Grape availability will be picking up as more growers come on in the next few weeks.

 

Avocado Recall Update

A voluntary recall was announced by Escondido-based Henry Avocados due to a positive test for Listeria monocytogenes. Avocados affected by this recall are both conventional and organic packed at this company’s CA packing house only.

 

Organic avocados at the co-op are not affected by this recall and are safe for human consumption.

 

We will keep you updated as information is released by the FDA.

Food Packaging Update

An article published this week by Bloomberg Press, titled “Whole Foods Ranked Worst on Cancer-Linked Package Chemicals” highlights per- or poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), a class of industrial chemicals used to repel grease, water and stains in consumer products. According to the EPA, PFAS have been linked to cancer, can harm the immune system, and can accumulate in humans and the environment.

The co-op is aware of the issue and working to get more information. We have already determined that the majority of co-op packaging is not impacted, and have contacted manufacturers of the potentially-affected items. Our goals are to identify which, if any, packaging products may be impacted, and to identify alternatives. 

We will post an update with additional information as soon as possible.
The co-op welcomes your feedback.

KPFK’s Uncle Ruthie Performing at the Co-op

KPFK’s Uncle Ruthie, host of Halfway Down the Stairs, will be performing holiday music on her 120 year old pump organ at both co-op locations. Her collection of musical instruments will be in tow so that her audience can join in the playing fun.

Ruthie “Uncle Ruthie” Buell is a poet, a songwriter, a music teacher and has been a radio broadcaster on KPFK 90.7 FM for over 50 years. She’s the host of the children’s show “Halfway Down the Stairs” on KPFK. From both Chicago and a farm in Wisconsin, Ruthie has been the creator of art and song and artistic experiences for as long as anyone has known her. She often performs at Beyond Baroque and the Workman’s Circle in the Pico-Robertson neighborhood, makes delicious meals for friends and neighbors with lots of butter and cream, and can play every instrument hanging on a wall or placed on a tabletop of her home. Her most recent inspired projects have been a book of poems and the creation of The Poet Tree, her front yard Chinese Elm that invites passersby to sit under its shade, write a verse and pin it to the tree.
