Good news for those who would like to enjoy produce from local farmers without making a weekly commitment to join a local CSA (Community Supported Agriculture.) Meritage Restaurant in the Colonial Village Shopping Center on Weaver Street in Scarsdale will now offer freshly grown produce from several of their suppliers. Vegetables will come from Blooming Hill Farm who grows only organic food to protect consumers from exposure to toxins and diseases. They believe that organic foods not only taste better but are safer for both human health and for the environment. Meritage will offer boxes of fresh produce from the farm for just $30 per week and deliveries can be picked up at the restaurant or at Harper’s Restaurant in Dobbs Ferry.
Produce will vary each weekly depending on what is in season. Right now, Blooming Hill is offering a wide variety of greens including lettuce, mesclun, escarole and kale. There’s broccoli, cauliflower and fennel as well as radishes, leeks, sugar snap peas and garlic. They have a wide variety of fresh herbs and fruit including raspberries, plums and peaches.

Meritage and Harper’s will also be selling milk from Battenkill Creamery and eggs from John Fazio Farms, two more special treats for Scarsdale residents.
In addition, Meritage Restaurant and Colonial Village Flowers will be setting up a small farm stand on Thursdays from 10-2 in front of Colonial Village Flowers on Weaver Street. They will be selling produce, dairy and baked goods.
