Ripe Summer Fruit
Enjoy a trio of summer fruit this week: Incredible locally-grown melons, Interlaken grapes and Italian plums.
Bert’s Bites Chunky Almond Snacks
Crafted with whole almonds, dried cranberries, whole grain oats, cinnamon, and organic maple syrup, this addictive mix is baked in small batches—eat it by the handful, or add it to a yogurt parfait along with melon and plum slices!
Fresh Artisan Baguette
This slightly-nutty, slightly-sweet sourdough baguette epitomizes French country-style baking with a chewy crust and light, airy interior. Baked by our favorite bakery in Snohomish, this traditional Pain au Levain is crafted using the bakery’s own sourdough starter.
Ercole Piemonte Rosato 2019
This crisp and dry Rosé from Piedmont, Italy features strawberry and peach on the nose, which leads to a pleasant second phase. Dry, but slightly sweet, it also boasts a smooth finish.
Farm Fresh Eggs
Busy scratching through the straw mulch in their spacious outdoor run looking for tasty bugs and worms, our heritage breed laying hens supply us with fresh eggs in beautiful shades of brown, beige and cream.
With a firm texture and light, delicate flavor, locally foraged Chanterelle mushrooms shine in a variety of dishes, lending earthy appeal to the likes of risotto, pasta and even scrambled eggs.
