As you may have noticed, certain out-of-region items have gone up significantly in price over the past few weeks. We proudly source our broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus, broccoli rabe and plenty of fruits from the central valley in California, which has experienced a serious freeze, significantly affecting crop production. What this means for us here at the Greene Grape is lower availability and higher prices. A reminder of how we fit into the natural world and are subject to mother nature’s whims, perhaps; to avoid these frustrations, we recommend shifting your dinner menu to include items that are grown locally this time of year. New York state is still supplying fabulous cabbages, potatoes, mushrooms, onions, winter squash, and much more! If you haven’t tried our local aquaponic salad greens and hydroponic tomatoes, we do solemnly swear you’ll be impressed!
