Much of the nation may be saying goodbye to their growing season as we get closer to November, and ultimately winter. Lucky for us New Orleanians, farmers throughout Louisiana and southern Mississippi are getting ready for a very productive growing season.

This week your box will contain many fall favorites, including perfectly ripe citrus (satsumas and navel oranges) from Lester L’Hoste. Be on the lookout for beautiful Creole eggplants and fresh black-eyed peas in your box, as well.

We’ve decided to focus on saving more paper and will be posting the weekly recipes only on this site. If you’d like a paper copy, please request one from As always, please email your favorite recipes to us! Maps will continue to appear in your weekly boxes, however.
