Spotlight On Coastal Cuisine: Pumpkin Perfect at the Veggie Wagon

By / Spotlight On Business / Wednesday, 05 October 2016 04:00

It's finally Fall, and The Veggie Wagon has just what you need to start feeling festive! We've just gotten in the season's first batch of pumpkins from our favorite local patch. Big, small, tall & fat, to carve or to crave, we have the pumpkin for you! We have all sorts of sizes and types of pumpkins. There are little baby pumpkins and monstrous extra-large pumpkins. We even have heirloom pumpkins in all kinds of fun colors! The problem with options, though, is how do you choose?
Here are some tips on picking out the perfect pumpkin! 1. Look out for mush! A pumpkin should be completely firm. Any soft spots are signs of decay inside the pumpkin. You can't have your pumpkin expiring before Halloween! 2. Pick the right shape! If you plan on carving your pumpkin, a round or oval pumpkin is best. That way, you have more room to carve and you'll get more yummy pumpkin seeds. A misshapen pumpkin won't have as much space filled with seeds. 3. Find one with character! A perfectly round and smooth pumpkin is nice, but little lumps and bumps add personality to your pumpkin. 4. If you're looking to carve your pumpkin, thump it to see if it sounds hollow. The hollow sound indicates that it has thinner walls, and will be easier to cut! Thicker walls are harder to work with. 5. Love your pumpkin! All of the tips & tricks in the world don't matter if you aren't in love. Follow your heart to the perfect pumpkin! Come by The Veggie Wagon today, and find a pumpkin that is perfect for you!
“Whether it's the first thing in the morning or the middle of the afternoon, we all need a little pick-me-up, sometimes. The Veggie Wagon is here for you, ready to put the pep back in your step with our Organic Coffee & Iced Tea bars!
Our Coffee Bar features organic lattes, Americanos, pour-over coffees, cold brew coffee and more. Bulletproof coffee is even on the menu! We use only organic, local espresso beans, organic syrups and organic milk. Everything is organic, so you can feel extra good about how you're getting your fix! Looking for something a little less intense? Our Iced Tea bar features three premium quality teas. Our Zen tea is a blend of green tea with lemongrass and spearmint. It's sure to refresh you while putting you at ease.  Tropical iced tea is a green tea blend with notes of tropical fruit. This tea is so good, it doesn't beg to be sweetened!  A classic Black tea accompanies the two green tea blends. This old favorite will give you the kick you need while easing the heat of the day.  Need something a little sweet in your iced tea? Our Iced Tea bar features local honey simple syrup, as well as simple syrups of agave and sugar in the raw. We even have spices and raw sugar. There's a little something for everyone!
