No, the locally-grown, perfectly ripe, full-flavored tomatoes in our produce section this February are not a beneficial bi-product of global warning. They are the ingenious brainchild of Shushan Valley Hydro Farm, a husband and wife farming team that needed a solution to the meager economics of a small dairy farm. Their solution? Hydroponically-grown, pesticide-free, natural stream-fed greenhouse tomatoes, an effort we are contributing to by being the first store in NYC to feature their products.
We hope you appreciate this ethical alternative to going tomato-less or buying blander, more well-traveled varieties. $5.99/lb and we will have them in stock until summer!
