Now that Thanksgiving is over and we’ve all eaten more than our fair share of turkey sandwiches, we’re excited to get back to Buyers’ Club. Many of you have told us that you are looking forward to having a box of fruits & veggies after a week of snacking on butter-laden baked good. We’ve prepared a great box for you this weekend full of great late fall & winter harvests like Tuscan kale straight from Macon Fry’s Telemachus street micro-farm, delicious organic strawberries from Morrow farm in Ponchatoula, and incredibly flavorful green onions from the Indian Springs Farmer Cooperative.

Ashley, our Farmer Coordinator, has shared another of her great recipes this week. Her mushroom soup will really make the most of the baby portabella mushrooms from Red Hill Farm in your box this week, and it will keep you warm!

Look for next week’s Buyers’ Club Monday newsletter to be included in a new newsletter that will include farmer profiles, food system articles, store site progress news, and much more.

Below are this week’s map and recipe, enjoy!
