Happy Labor Day!

It is hard to believe that September is already upon us! We are grateful for the opportunity to pause and reflect on Labor Day to appreciate all of the hard work that goes into producing healthy food and making it accessible to our communities. Most of all we are grateful for Mother Earth, for our members, and for cooler temperatures! 

September brings a multitude of fresh produce, including sweet peppers, delicata, butternut, spaghetti, and acorn squashes, carrots, and tomatoes!
