New Products 7/16/2018 (Vermont)
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!
Local Organic Sugar Snap Peas –
from Full Moon Farm
Snap peas are so delicious, you can eat them raw as a snack or sauté them in butter and sprinkle with salt for a simple and satisfying side dish.
Local Organic Chestnut and Black Poplar Mushrooms –
from 1000 Stone Farm
As our buyer says, these practically glow! Chestnut and Black Poplar (AKA Pioppino) mushrooms have a lot of flavor, go well in many dishes, and are excellent prepared on their own with little touches of seasoning.
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.
Last Resort Farm – In a week or two, look forward to local organic currants and gooseberries. Many love the fresh, unique flavors, but we only get about one or two deliveries a season, and that’s it. We usually get red, black, and white currants, and we’ll let you know when they arrive.
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.
Northern Bayou Cold Brew New Flavors – The two new flavors are Toasted Coconut and The Big Easy. Toasted coconut isn’t sweetened or flavored with a syrup, just steeped with house toasted organic coconut chips for a subtle pop of coconut. The Big Easy is a traditional New Orleans style cold brew steeped with chicory. If you haven’t had New Orleans style cold brew before, the chicory lends a spicy and woody feel to the coffee.
Essential HL Honey Sriracha Cashews and Honey Cashews – Available in bulk!
From the Ground Up Cauliflower Crackers and Pretzels – Three cracker flavors: nacho, cheddar, and sea salt. Pretzels available in sticks or twists.
Kitchen & Love – Ready to eat cauliflower meals. Three great flavors to choose from: Harissa, Curry, and Peru Vegetable.
