What's In Season - Weekly Newsletter #6



July 17th, 2021


We are so excited to announce that we'll have fresh Michigan Peaches and some of our young, small-kerneled Bi-Color Sweet Corn this week!


Besides our delicious young Sweet Corn and Fred & Linda's fantastically sweet, juicy, and flavorful Peaches, new this week is Hot Banana Peppers, Sweet Cipollini Onions, Broccoli & Broccolini, and a new patch of our true spinach. However, not only do we have our sweet, fresh-salad worthy Curly Bloomsdale Spinach, but we also have a gorgeous new red-stemmed variety called Red Tabby. It is so sweet, it's hard to believe it was grown in July!


Also, do not pass up our Sugar Snap Peas this week. Our final patch of the season just filled out, and their the sweetest of the year!


We also have some exciting new additions to our program to announce! I've just finished up adding our new Centgraf Farms Community Page and Members Area. So many of you have been texting, emailing, and instagramming me your beautiful photos of the wonderful things you've been making with our veggies that I've been trying to figure out how to share them with others. I think I've found the solution!


Our new Centgraf Farms Community Page is an open forum where you can share your photos, recipe ideas, and thoughts on our produce with other like-minded members of our farm community. Also, it opens up our new "What's In Season" Blog to comments by the community. Now, when you have a tip or improvement on a recipe in our weekly newsletter, you can easily post it for all of us to try!


Most importantly for me, the community page will open up and speed up communication between all of us. Once you join, you can opt in to getting instant notifications on community page activity. This way, I can readily let you know when changes occur on our site, when new veggies & fruits are ready, when The Market is restocked and ready for orders, and when updates on estimated delivery & pickup times occur. No more having to log in to the site to figure out when your veggies are coming or if I've restocked yet! ;)


Joining the community is super easy. It's basically set up like a group page on facebook. Simply click "Join" on the Centgraf Farms Community Page and you'll get instant email updates whenever I post an update. However, I also encourage you to download the "Wix Spaces" app so you can get instant notifications on your phone.


To get the group rolling, we're offering a $3 Market Coupon to everyone who joins!


Thanks so much for supporting us,


The Centgraf's

Easy "Homemade" Ramen Bowls


We had such a nice response to our Stir Fry/Ramen Bundle last week, that we decided to offer it this week as well!


Around here, when I'm in a real rush for dinner, I totally cheat and create a full meal based off of packaged ramen (tossing the flavor packets, of course). Lots of onions, almost any leafy green, carrots and peas go in the pot. Throw in a protein, and you're good to go! Last week, we even had a customer try sliced Kohlrabi in it--best idea ever!!


Grab a Stir Fry/Ramen Bundle this week or use up some of your veggies in your Farmer Know's Best Box.



 

Remember, Weekly Order Cut-Off Time is 11:59pm on Sunday.

Most deliveries & pickups are on Tuesday evening. Pickup at West Allis Farmers' Market is Tuesday during market hours.
