For those of you who made it up this weekend, we hope you enjoyed yourselves!  We would love to hear from you- your highlights and if you have any pictures you would like to share:  please send them to me, and I'll put them in next week's BEET, or feel free to post them on our Facebook page, or share on your Instagram #CLINTONHILLCSA

The sun is setting just a little bit sooner, and the night time temperature is feeling nice and cool; summer will be turning into fall soon.  For us at the CSA that means the end of tomato season, and the beginning of delicata squashes and pumpkins.  Here's a few recipes to help you enjoy the last of your summer tomatoes:

Enjoy the last of your heirloom tomatoes with this amazing salad!  Roasting half of the tomatoes gives another deep layer of flavor and texture.

Here is a recipe for a tomato & peach salad that is easy to prepare, looks fantastic on the table, and will satisfy all your different tastebuds.  

Where to get the Best Mozzarella & Burrata:  Recently I went to Lioni's in search of smoked mozzarella, as good as the kind they have at the Arthur Avenue Market, and I was not disappointed.  If you are looking for a piece of old school Italian Brooklyn, they won't disappoint.  They make incredible sandwiches in addition to making all their own mozzarella and baked goods.

Fall products are coming in at Lewis Waite Farm Collective.  If you haven't ordered from them in a while, now might be a good time to re-visit them to place your order fro next week.




Come meet other fellow Brooklyn CSA members!  Happy Hour Specials until 7pm!  1$ from all drinks purchased will goto support Just Food and the CSA movement in NYC.  Tho not required, if you know you'd like to come, please RSVP here.

Carnival / West Indian Day Parade this weekend!

Carnival is the biggest festival in South America, with Colombia and Brazil hosting the largest parades, but Brooklyn is proud to host the 3rd largest Carnival in the world!  If you are not going out of town this weekend- check it out!  It's amazing, and there will be great street eats as well!

MONDAY, September 7th.  Get info about it here!
