Vincenzo rocking the lists

26 July, 2010: Vincenzo is our new listman. I think he’s going to write about this soon in more detail. You wouldn’t believe how different it is to operate 2 trucks vs. 1. Wouldn’t seem that different, but it is. Add to that the growth of both trucks, and we’re talking about a 4-fold increase in customers served this July… Read More

Sharan is back!

HSC returns tomorrow 8/31

First came DTX last month. It’s doing so well, thanks to your support… Read More

Round food and new apples: meet the Rosh Hashanah kit

We’ve learned that… Read More

We’ve gotten similar questions about the Brussels and JSP.  The truth is zucchini doesn’t taste as good in the winter. And brussels and sweet… Read More

We’re getting our tomatoes from Sarah and Ryan at Red… Read More

Late summer box is here!

12 August, 2021: We didn’t know if this box could happen this year. When we heard tomatoes were late due to the torrential rains earlier this summer, we were worried that we would have to skip the most popular meal box we’ve done to date: The Late Summer Box. We screamed, “Nooooooo!” Now thanks in part to this heat, heirloom tomatoes are here and… Read More
