Happy June! We have several new items to highlight:
Masters Hand Barbecue Sauces and flavored Cashews: “Looking for a sauce that stands out from the rest? A BBQ for those who have a finer taste in mind? Cut the wild west shenanigans and hillbilly hype and enjoy your food with a
delectable, rich, food sauce that is not like any other BBQ you have ever tried! It will have you on cloud nine!”
Local Folks Foods: Garden Fresh Mild Salsa (joining the rest of the family – Hot & Medium!) and Enchilada Sauce
“The LocalFolks Foods line originated with products made for local farmers’ markets from ingredients grown on Steve and Anita Spencer’s seventh-generation family farm in Sheridan, Indiana. We are now realizing our dream of producing the largest selection of products showcasing the flavors of the Midwest year-round. By partnering with family farms, farm cooperatives, and processors throughout the region, we help recreate and strengthen Midwest food networks and provide new opportunities for family farms as we continue to add to our line of natural and wholesome products.”
Field Roast: Refrigerated Vegetarian Frankfurters and Deli Slices, brought to you by customer request! Try them and let me know what you think.
Bakery on Main: True Bar again, brought to you by customer request!
Lovestreet Living Foods: Raw and organic Superfudge Bar, Coconut Crystal Chocolate Bar, Chocolate Spread, Coconut Chocolate Spread, and Chocolate Syrup! Another customer request fulfilled!
So Delicious: 6 oz. greek yogurts (Blueberry and Strawberry)
And, in our bulk department:
Forbidden Black Rice: The Emperor says, “Hands off the black rice! It’s mine.”
“Black Rice is also known as “forbidden rice”, and as the name might imply, consuming it without approval from the proper authorities can have life threatening consequences for those involved. Luckily, we no longer live in times of Black Rice prohibition.” Black rice is rich in antioxidants, iron and fiber and may well be the next Superfood! Check out blackrice.com for more info!
No Salt Pistachios: I don’t know….I just don’t get this one, but several customers have asked, so now they’re here!!
Wine & Beer: Thanks to all who attended the Wine Tasting on the Patio during the Truckload Sale last month! It was a resounding success! We gave ALMOST $600 to the Boys and Girls Club from the $5 entry fee! And, although the sun was in rare May form that day, we all had a great time! My personal favorite wine was 3 Brooms, a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc that tastes just like your grandmother’s vegetable garden in the middle of summer with notes of tomato plants, dill and cucumber. Really!!
As a final note I’d like to share with you the recall of Crown Prince Oysters. The FDA states that canned, fresh and frozen shellfish from South Korea are considered adulterated. All wholesale shipments and retail sales have ceased until further notice. This recall affects oysters from South Korea, only and no other Crown Prince products are affected by it. The FDA also states that no illnesses from the consumption of Korean shellfish have been reported.
Bloomingfoods is now the proud owner of a beautifully restored 1947 Co-op Model E-3 tractor. Manufactured by Cockshutt Farm Equipment, Ltd. in Branford, Ontario, this model was sold throughout the U.S. in the 1940s and 1950s to local farmer-owned cooperatives.
We are proud to own and use this beautifully restored tractor, reminding us as it does of the small family farms we care about and the cooperative business model we practice. We intend to use the E-3 for a variety of chores and events around our facilities and the town. For now, you can introduce yourself to the Co-op tractor over at the East store, near the Garden Center!
The East store patio is getting walls and a roof! We are building a four seasons room with skylights, windows that open, and space for events and seating. Our goal is to create a pleasant space that is an integral part of the East store, enhancing your experience there, and providing more space for lingering over a sandwich or cup of coffee. We'll keep loading photos as the project unfolds.
