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.
