No-Can Cranberries,
our Favorite Turkey,
plus Gravy and Sides

Author

Copywriter Chris Allen

It’s back! Our absolute favorite turkey – Diestel – at the rock-bottom price of $3.99 lb. We believe in offering high-quality meal choices whenever possible, and if you want a great-tasting, juicy, organic turkey for your family and friends, this is the one. Not only is it delicious, but we’re huge fans of the Diestel family’s “value over volume” philosophy. For 70 years, Diestel has been slow-growing their birds on their family farms with a 100% vegetarian diet. …

Classic Turkey Dinner:
Let Our Kitchens
Keep You Out of Yours

Author

Copywriter Chris Allen

Thanksgiving is only a few weeks away and I’m starting to get excited! I always get “big feelings” when I think about my favorite holiday. As my son gets older and other members of my extended family start having kids, the chaos of my favorite holiday only grows — I love it!  But the fantasy of cooking an entire holiday meal for the family sometimes loses its luster when you actually think about all the turkey prep, messy pots and last-minute desserts that are involved in pulling it off. If that sounds like you, then we’ve got a shortcut that doesn’t skimp on …

Homemade Pizza
& Plastic-Free Storage
Make Us Very Happy!

Author

Copywriter Chris Allen

Halloween’s food du jour is mostly cheap chocolates, sweet caramel and something called nougat. But if I’m thinking about food people love, the first thing that comes to my mind is homemade pizza, the delicious treat that’s been bringing kids and adults together at the same table since the dawn of dinner time. So it’s no accident that we  have several pizza options in our markets this week — plus a killer calzone recipe —  to help you put together a little spooky fun for the little ghouls and ghosts in your life. Show Me the Dough! Pizza Dough on …

Palm Tree Pasta,
Bruce Gore Salmon
and Pumpkin Cookies!

Author

Copywriter Chris Allen

With autumn weather now firmly in place in Puget Sound, I’m feeling the urge to reach for warm comfort foods. Around my house, that usually means a giant bowl of penne or linguine pasta, a few dashes of nutty lentils, all covered in a light sprinkling (aka a heavy downpour) of Parmesan cheese. A glass of Shiraz doesn’t hurt, either. Unfortunately, what I’m usually NOT reaching for are my running shoes. A giant pile of pasta is good for the soul, but not so great for the waistline. …

Seattle Granola
and Dungeness Crab
Steal the Spotlight

Author

Copywriter Chris Allen

We had a rare opportunity last year to get a great deal on fresh Dungeness crab and it looks like the sea gods have favored us once again! Sweet, tender crab freshly caught from the Straits of Juan de Fuca is only $11.98 lb. this week through Oct. 22. That’s a savings of more than $4 a lb. They’re wild and pre-cooked for your convenience, too, which means steaming a 2-lb. crab only takes about 3-5 minutes before it’s ready for dinner. Don’t hesitate to ask our fishmongers for preparation …

The Pumpkins are Big,
the Spices on Sale
and the Lamb Flavorful

Author

Copywriter Chris Allen

After a mildly disappointing, smaller-sized 2018 crop, this year’s supply of carving pumpkins is huge! At just $4.98 each, you can gather enough gargantuan pumpkins to carve an entire spooky army of Jack-O-Lanterns and deploy them on your porch to ward off would-be tricksters. Our Produce guru Joe Pulicicchio says an unusually dry and hot summer kept pumpkins modest last year, but the milder temperatures and rains this year really injected some life into the pumpkin crop. …

Obviously, the Seattle area is known for great coffee. And one of our favorites is on our Big Board Buys this week – Tony’s Fair-Trade Coffee. Not only is it just $7.98 lb. through Oct. 8 — a savings of more than $3 lb. — but they have a great Northwest success story, too. “They’re so customer-centered and passionate about their local communities that they really stand out as one of my favorites,” said Nita Wills, our …

So Long Sweet Summer
but Hello Oktoberfest!

Author

Copywriter Chris Allen

If Monday’s autumn equinox, with its equal hours of light and dark, didn’t officially usher in the fall season for you, maybe some rain and bluster will. It definitely feels like summer is over, which isn’t all bad because that also means autumn eating experiences! Autumn eating includes Oktoberfest, officially celebrated Sept. 21-Oct. 6. Many of you may already have noticed a few extra German-style treats in our markets. Whether it’s German-style meats, cheeses or beer, we have what you need to get an authentic taste of what it’s like to eat like an old-school Bavarian for …
