Yes, Virginia, there ARE
Tasty Winter Tomatoes
(Bagels & Granola, too!)

Copywriter Chris Allen

Many of us at T&C are settling back into those familiar eating routines and, for me this week, it’s about simple breakfasts on the go and light green salads at night. I guess that’s why I’m so glad our markets are so well-stocked with excellent eating options during both the peak of summer abundance AND the gray winter doldrums of January. …

Lighter, Leaner and Looking for New Foods

Copywriter Chris Allen

Yep. I know it’s cliché, but I’m definitely trying to make my footfalls a little lighter this New Year. Maybe it’s the fact that I’m a new parent and I spent all my time trying to keep the food off the floor and into my little monster’s mouth that got me a little lazy about healthy eating in late 2018. But that’s all gonna change in 2019…right? Dragon Fruit Totally Slays in your Smoothies …

Treasure Trove of Gifts
on the Grocery Shelves

Copywriter Chris Allen

Turns out, the best gift I ever gave my parents was a last-minute, last-ditch effort – pulling a wooden box filled with tasty smoked salmon from a grocery shelf in 2014. Seriously, they still talk about it. I felt bad at the time because I hadn’t given it a little more thought, but in retrospect, I’m glad because that gift has eased the pressure every year. The reality is that there’s a treasure trove of unique, interesting gifts waiting to be discovered in our markets. Let us help you find your next last-second gem.

Put our Delis to Work
for Thanksgiving Dinner

Copywriter Chris Allen

Thanksgiving is only two weeks away and I’m starting to get excited! I always get “big feelings” when I think about my favorite holiday. There’s so much wrapped up in the tradition this time of year that it’s hard to process it all. The back and forth with family about who’s going to host or where grandma and grandpa are going to stay when they visit. The aunts and uncles we don’t see as much as we should and all the kids running around (what’s that kid’s name again?). The brief, bittersweet moments when we notice the spot at the table where a loved one used to …
