The GOODS from Harvest Community Foods

Vancouver, BC | In celebration of spring’s long-awaited arrival, Chinatown-Strathcona’s iconic grocery and ramen bar Harvest Community Foods is unveiling a fresh crop of menu items and artisan products. Locavores can purchase Community Supported Agriculture boxes packed with freshly foraged spring ingredients; revisit the restaurant’s popular noodle bowls (starring a hearty dose of seasonal ingredients); and browse a new stock of artisan groceries.

Chefs Andrea Carlson and Gabriella Meyer are longstanding champions of Community Supported Agriculture (CSA), a hyper-local philosophy of food production and distribution. Commonly referred to as “share boxes”, each CSA package is filled with in-season fruits and vegetables sourced from Lower Mainland farms. Rest assured, you won’t be subjected to a non-stop parade of kale and cabbage: Harvest partners with a range of suppliers to ensure each delivery contains a variety of exciting ingredients. This spring, customers can expect to see fresh foraged wild garlic, miner’s lettuce, asparagus and fiddleheads, as well as a selection of organic and dried fruits.

CSA boxes can be enjoyed year-round as a single purchase, for multiple weeks or an entire season. Priced at $33 per box and portioned for two people, shares are available for purchase every two weeks to be picked up at the store. Sign up for Harvest’s newsletter to place an order and receive a sneak peek at upcoming box selections alongside custom recipes. The next round of CSA boxes will be available for pick-up on Thursday, April 27 and the deadline for orders is Tuesday, April 25.

“I’m so excited about our upcoming CSA boxes,” says Harvest Community Foods’ Chef/Partner Gabriella Meyer. “Spring offers such a range of foraging potential, and farmers and producers in the Lower Mainland have provided us with an incredible assortment of ingredients. Seasonality and quality build the foundation of Harvest’s CSA boxes and menu items, and we couldn’t achieve this without the strong relationships we have built with these wonderful local growers.”

Since opening in spring 2013, Harvest has acquired a reputation citywide as a must-visit ramen house. Visitors and residents regularly line up for the signature noodle soups, which rotate often based on seasonality and the kitchen team’s creative spark. Harvest’s menu is created by Chef Andrea Carlson, owner of sister restaurant and popular Main street eatery Burdock & Co. Gabriella Meyer oversees Harvest’s daily operations, from cooking and crafting daily specials to sourcing fresh B.C. ingredients. Working closely with regional farmers, one of her favourite parts of the job is sharing with guests the benefits of eating organic foods and supporting local farms through Harvest’s CSA program. Harvest’s spring menu is equally suited to vegans and lovers of sustainable meat; current highlights include ramen with pork shoulder, candied bacon, egg and radish; vegan udon with shiso, greens, tofu and shiitake; and vegetarian ramen with squash and miso broth, nori, scallions and sesame. New spring additions include the soba noodle salad made with tempeh, sunflower sprouts, pickled morel mushrooms and fresh greens.

Harvest has also become a go-to destination for premium sustainable groceries, all of which are sourced from regional artisans. Grocery staples include delicate chocolates, house-made yogurt and parfaits topped with seasonal fruits. This spring, customers will find several new additions on the shelves, such as Lower Mainland-produced organic grain and flour courtesy of Cedar Isle Organic Grains; and Standard’s locally brewed and bottled kombucha.

ABOUT HARVEST

Harvest Community Foods - Ramen with pork shoulder, marinated egg, radish and candied bacon

Harvest has roots firmly planted in community. The grocery and foods shop began as community project (This Space), in which a public vote determined the use of the site. Voters chose to use the space as a local foods grocery, and dubbed the shop Harvest Community Foods. Residents in the Chinatown-Strathcona neighbourhood regularly drop by for Harvest’s signature noodle soups, made with a variety of fresh veggies and meats in rich homemade broth. Harvest also offers innovative chef-crafted Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) shares of bi-weekly farm produce, available year-round as a single purchase, for multiple weeks or an entire season.

At its core, Harvest Community Foods proudly offers delicious and health-conscious fare, with an equal focus on transparency and sustainability. By carrying urban produce and small production vegan and local foods, Harvest helps Vancouverites foster a closer connection to the food they eat and community they call home.
