NE Box Newsletter for August 30, 2019 Pickup

 Hello all!  

And here we have it, another round of great local food… While I can hardly believe we are already here—Labor Day is next weekend, and we’ve got plenty of deals on all the local grillable fare….We’ve got beef brats, lamb brats, bison burgers, and ground pork. We’ve got a wide variety of veg (and fruit) that does supremely well on the grill—eggplant, zucchini, red onions, potatoes, corn, bell peppers, red cabbage, melons…I could go on and on! New this week, we have the Grill Master’s Variety Pack of buns from Le Q and I’m super excited about these! There’s a bun for everyone…the six-pack bag will contain two of each bun— Onion, Sesame Seed, and Jalapeno Cheddar.  See the default box contents below, and be sure to log on and customize by 11:59pm Monday if you want to make changes. 

You can continue to pop onto Vacation Mode when you’re out of town, reschedule future payments as needed, AND we just added a “one off” weekly box option for folks out there who aren’t ready to commit to a subscription.  We’re still getting it situated on our website, so for now please share these direct links with anyone who may be interested:  Weekly Supreme Box  and Weekly Veggie Box.  Have them put your name in the order comments for a $10 kick back to your funds.  As subscribers, you’ll want to be sure and log in and stick with your usual Supreme and Veggie for the best value; the Weekly options are $5 more. 

 Check out the boxes we have planned for you — change them up, as you see fit!
