Why You Should Add Fresh Produce to Your Thanksgiving Day Meal

The holiday season is here, and boy are we excited! While this holiday season may not look the same, there are still many reasons to celebrate. Now more than ever, many of us are clinging to quality time spent with close friends and family. The days of huge family gatherings and “Friendsgivings” may be at a halt for now, but you can still enjoy this Thanksgiving with close loved ones. Here, Maryland-based grocery delivery company Ever Fresh discusses delicious ways you can include produce from your weekly Ever Fresh box into your Thanksgiving meal this year! 

Warm Up With Some Hearty Vegetables

When it comes to Thanksgiving meals, every family is different. Some families savor ooey-gooey, marshmallow filled sweet potatoes, while others opt for buttery and delectable golden mashed potatoes. Some make creamy green bean casserole, while others opt for steamed vegetables like carrots or asparagus. Whatever your family traditions are, Ever Fresh has a box catered perfectly to you. Our traditional Veggie Box is filled with everything you need to make your favorite fall soups, salads and sides. If you have a specific recipe in mind, you can build a custom box delivered right to your door! From potatoes, to squash, carrots, celery and more, Ever Fresh has your veggie fix! With seasonality in mind, we make it a priority to get local and non-local produce that is always fresh. 

Decorate With Fun Fall-Themed Decor

Just because you aren’t hosting a large dinner, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t decorate! Did you know that Ever Fresh has fall and Thanksgiving-themed decorations in our add ons? Mini white and orange pumpkins can cover your living room, kitchen or entryway for a festive feel. We know that times are tough right now, and sometimes, even the smallest things can make the biggest difference. Adding those small touches will surely help your family get into the holiday spirit. Who doesn’t love some fall decor? If you have an indoor-outdoor space planned for your Thanksgiving dinner, take it to the next level with one of our giant pumpkins or straw bales! We’re sure your neighbors will be envious. 

Craft Delectable Desserts With Our Fruit Box & Add Ons

Now, if you’re like us, your favorite part about Thanksgiving has to be dessert. Who doesn’t love a warm apple pie on a chilly fall evening? That’s why we make sure to have a ton of seasonal additions to help you make those delectable family recipes. From juicy peaches and pears, to fresh strawberries, your Ever Fresh box is filled to the brim with the best produce Maryland has to offer. Even better, we’re offering local apple butter, pumpkin butter and honey as add-ons! One thing we are thankful for is the rich history and landscape that Maryland has. With hundreds of small businesses across the state, we make it our mission to support our community, incorporating local produce wherever possible.

Celebrate This Thanksgiving With Ever Fresh

Ever Fresh began serving those in need across the state. Partnering with Baltimore County Together, Ever Fresh provided produce for those in need throughout Baltimore County at the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic. As we have expanded to now serve Anne Arundel and Howard County, our mission still remains the same, to bring great produce to families who need it at an affordable price, without sacrificing quality. This year has been a whirlwind for many, and at Ever Fresh, we do the best we can to help make daily life easier, such as offering weekly delivery right to your door! We are beyond thankful for the wonderful community we have across central Maryland, and look forward to seeing how you are spending your Thanksgiving with Ever Fresh!
