Reviews for: Bloomfield-Montclair CSA
By: Stephanie (Apr 22, 2009)
We're looking forward to beginning our third season with this CSA. It's a great group of people, very well run. It's been fun learning creative ways to cook new vegetables (kohlrabi slaw? turnip-greens curry?) that we probably wouldn't otherwise have tasted. We found out we liked beets. We mashed purple potatoes and sauteed rainbow chard.
The only drawback is as a working family of two, we felt guilty wasting the overabundance of produce we received. (It wouldn't have been bad if we were better about storing things properly - we'll do better this year, promise).
Every time I see a sad, pink wedge of winter tomato in my salad, I find myself dreaming of those heirloom beauties we'll be enjoying come summertime - and supporting a local, sustainable farm with every tasty bite.

My husband and I were looking for creative ways to support holistic living and we discovered the Bloomfield-Montclair CSA. We have never eaten better and the other day I said, "the thought of buying produce at the grocery store is a little depressing." We have been spoiled in the best of ways!!
We've learned about new foods, cooked more and better than ever and gotten very creative with greens and squash b/c we had a ton of these! And things keep b/c they are from the ground to your home. A head of lettuce wrapped in a damp towel kept in the crisper for 3 weeks. We have potatoes, onions, squash, cabbage, turnips, parsnips, radishes and celeriac abounding from our last pick up a month ago. It continues to be the best food we've ever tasted.
One of the best decisions we've ever made, one wiff of that tub of herbs and you'll surely agree!
