New Products 7/16/2018 (Saratoga)
I admit it. I’m a produce dork. Nothing gets me more excited than fresh, local produce arriving at the store. All those colors! Smells! Antioxidants! Well, as you can imagine, I’m dorking out big time right now because we have SO MUCH good stuff in-stock and ready to munch. And that’s just the start. We also have new, yummy snacks and beverages that are so fun and healthy we might forgo dinner and just snack all day. (Don’t judge.) Here’s what’s new.
We have over 100 local products in produce right now, and I bet we’ll be up to 120 by the end of next week!
Hand Melon Farm Local Fresh Corn –
The wait is over! Fresh and delicious local NY sweet corn hit the shelves this week, which means we’re officially at local produce peak season. And, after being in business for 100 years, Hand Melon Farm in Greenwich, NY, has fine-tuned the art of producing outstanding flavors, so get your sweet corn now and taste for yourself.
Fresh Green Pluots –
Pluots are so fun because you never know if they’re going to taste more like an apricot, a plum, or something completely new. They are juicy, plum sized, and always sweet.
Chayote Squash – Mild flavored and firm, you can treat chayote squash much like you would summer squash (like zucchini). Simply sautéed with spices, this squash makes an excellent accompaniment to almost any meat dish. It’s a traditional ingredient across the globe, and it’s especially prized in Mexican and Creole cooking.
Hand Melons – Hopefully arriving in the next two weeks, Hand Melons are a world-famous type of cantaloupe that are super sweet. Bred by John Hand, at Hand Melon Farm, we get them directly from his farm, for maximum freshness.
Local Organic Fresh Green Garlic – This is immature garlic that is not meant to be stored, and it has a sweet juiciness that is totally different from garlic that has been stored for a few months. Should be available within 2-3 weeks.
Local Organic Cipollini Onions – I love cipollini onions because they are sweet and tender, and great for
roasting whole because they are usually small. They come in red and yellow or white varieties. Available
in both stores.
Oatly Oat Milk – We've had A LOT of guests from both stores requesting this product. It’s finally arrived. No dairy, no nuts, no added sugar, no gluten, 100% vegan. Wherever and whenever you find yourself drinking cow’s milk, or pouring it in coffee, or using it in a recipe, you can use oat milk. It’s a one for one swap. We have Original and Chocolate flavors available now.
Kite Hill Artisan Almond Milk Yogurt Tubes – These dairy-free tubes start with almond milk, traditionally cultured into creamy goodness. Then fruit and live active cultures are added to create a handful of pure deliciousness kids are sure to love. No artificial colors or preservatives. Dairy, soy and gluten free. 6 grams of sugar per tube. Flavors Available: Strawberry Banana and Wild Berry.
Woodstock Organic Pomegranate Kernels – By guest request. Great for smoothies.
Healthade Jalapeno-Kiwi-Cucumber Kombucha – Cool and sweet with a touch of spice, this organic and cold-pressed beverage is refreshing on these nice days we’ve been having.
Aqua Vitea Watermelon Habanero Kombucha – Refreshing and delicious, with a subtle heat, this one might be your new favorite. Think “cool breeze on a warm summer day.” Don’t let the Habanero frighten you, it’s just a tickle. Bring on the sweet heat!
