Vegetables

The vegetable share runs for 22 weeks, from June through November and provides enough produce to form the core of a week’s worth of meals for a typical omnivorous couple (we recommend that vegetarians and families supplement with additional vegetables). An average share consists of a couple pounds of leafy greens, a few pounds of hard veggies (like carrots, potatoes, and onions), and is often supplemented with fresh herbs and small quantities of specialty vegetables. Expect to see about six to eight different vegetable varieties each week.
