The extreme cold we are enduring since the weekend and the forecast for Monday-Tuesday-Wednesday of this week, led me to a decision of not placing the regular weekly order this week. Our truck leaves the warehouse in the early hours of Tuesday morning and is on the truck overnight until it arrives Wednesday morning. My past experience with this extreme cold is that most of the produce is frozen and even some of the grocery items frozen and broken. With this in mind I did not make the order but will have a truck as usual for next week. It will still be cold next week but not the extreme below zero temps as we have this week.
We have a good stock of most of the staple organic produce like celery, spinach, mixed greens, kale and romaine but we will not have bananas and tomatoes. We have a few bunches of bananas left as of this morning. Slippery Hills Farm will be delivering their hydroponic lettuces on Wednesday as usual. A new batch of microgreens were delivered Monday.
I am sorry for any inconveniences but if the produce arrived frozen and is not saleable, we still would not have it for sale. Hopefully this is our last severe cold spell for this winter.
We have not yet started the interviews for the part-time positions so if you are interested in joining the staff, please pick up an application at the co-op or on our website.
