If you thought you had to get up early to go to the farmer’s market to get fresh, local produce, think again. At McGonigle’s, we have local farmers deliver their goods to us. Now you can just head over to McGonigle’s Market all day long for farm fresh tomatoes, corn, peaches and more! We pride ourselves on providing the Kansas City community with delicious, local and affordable food and beverage options. We also love that this allows us to support local growers. This is one of the best times of the year to take advantage of local and seasonal produce and foods. There is so much variety, and the options available are bursting with color and flavor. We are currently the only buyer and distributor of a great local farm, Cobinsteinz Farm. Here’s what you can expect to see from them in our store when you come in this time of the summer season.
If you are a pickle person, run, do not walk, to McGonigle’s while you still have time. We have some of the best locally made pickles in stock. Cobinsteinz Farm out of Bucyrus, Kansas just dropped off their first batch of homemade pickles. We have two flavors: Dill and not-Dill. At $4.99 a pint, they’re a great deal! You can find them in the Deli and the Produce sections of McGonigle’s Market. Hurry! We only have a limited supply before we get another batch.
Ripe Tomatoes, Ready for the Pickin’!
Tomato season has officially kicked off, and boy is the harvest a good one. Lots of rain in the Midwest this season has delayed the tomato and heirloom season a bit, but it’s made the resulting harvest full of juicy ‘maters! you can eat these any which way, and you’re sure to enjoy them. Simply slice them up, sprinkle a little salt and pepper on them, and enjoy! Use them in caprese or other salads. Use them as condiments for your burgers. Eat them like an apple. You really can’t go wrong, no matter how you choose to enjoy them.
