March News

Who’s ready for longer days?! March feels infused with fresh energy, the sun rising earlier and new produce sprouting at the markets. Speaking of which, we are busy prepping for a menu change later this month, along with some other updates (stay tuned!). In the meantime, join us for a flick at the SLO International Film Festival, drop by for sunny afternoon glass of chardonnay on our patio, and   take time to stroll through your local farmers’ market (what’s in season below)…


Edible SLO’s Spring issue is hot off the press, and they celebrated with the release party on our patio last Wednesday. It was such a treat to hob nob with the writers and subjects of their Service Issue, celebrating the people and establishments that make our industry tick. Make sure to pick up a copy of this issue at one of these locations throughout the county.


We caught up with our Produce Purveyor, Noah Nute, to find out what’s in season this month at our local Farmers’ Market…

snap peas- first developed in 1952, it’s a crossbreed of snow peas with a mutant shell pea plant in order to get that round pod; great in a fry, sauteed with ginger and garlic, or just as a snack by itself.
cauliflower- kills cancer cells, boosts brain health, works as an anti-inflammatory, too! Can be cut to imitate rice, cooked and pureed, or even used for “mashed potatoes” to trick your picky eaters at home.
citrus- with cold/flu season upon us, all citrus is high in Vitamin C, a natural antioxidant for your body; try incorporating orange zest into your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe, the flavor profile is delicious!
broccoli- soups, salads, pizza, dips––the uses for this wonderful (yet smelly) vegetable are endless!
Cal Poly flowers- fresh picked from the horticulture department, our hard-working Poly students provide beautiful flowers at farmers’ markets
asparagus- whether wrapped in bacon, oven roasted with olive oil and lemon, or steamed, asparagus is full of essential nutrients, fiber and cancer fighting benefits.
celery root, variety of radishes, english peas
winter variety strawberries
