Let the Grilling Begin:
Tools and Salmon Time!

Author

Copywriter Chris Allen

Instead of spending your Memorial Day cooped up in a hot car, crawling along I-90, or fighting your way through security at SeaTac Airport like The Seattle Times says a whole lot of us will be doing this weekend, I hope you find time to gather around a grill with your loved ones and feast on some delicious early summer foods! Before we get to the food, though, you better get your grill game up to speed. From spatulas to scrapers, our Housewares folks have brought in all the tools a …

Ideas Great and Small
for Mother’s Day

Author

Copywriter Chris Allen

This Mother’s Day weekend, millions of us will be crafting a tasty and thoughtful meal for the special moms in our lives. Nobody smooths out my rough edges and inspires me to be a better man than my partner and the mother of my child. The least I can do is make her something delicious for lunch and dinner (which, of course, I will also eat and enjoy)! Besides, it’s another way to get inspired in the kitchen with fresh, delicious ingredients from our markets. If you’ve got the gumption for a little more than some scrambled eggs and a flower served on a tray for breakfast …

Easter Springs Forward
with Kurobuta & Brunch

Author

Copywriter Chris Allen

Bright, colorful Easter egg hunts and a couple slices of smoked ham – that’s what Easter meant to me as a child. I’m positive my grandma would have been tickled pink to serve a lightly smoked Kurobuta ham from Porter & York if she had had the opportunity. This delicious bone-in half ham is on our Big Board this week for just $4.48 lb. and will not disappoint. Pleasant, rich in color and filled with beautiful marbling, this ham is exceptionally sweet, juicy and tender. Our markets are one of the only …

Spring in Full Bloom
with Rosé and Seafood

Author

Copywriter Chris Allen

There are two surefire ways to tell that spring is in full effect. First is the explosion of tree pollen inflicting varying levels of allergy symptoms upon everyone you know, some of whom actually consider a trip to urgent care for an injection. As a lifelong allergy sufferer, one of my only sources of solace is the second sign of spring — French Rosé! We’re super excited to offer the Domaine des Bellugues Rosé for the third …

Spring Eating Begins
with Alaskan Halibut
and Kingston Nuts

Author

Copywriter Chris Allen

Whenever halibut season rolls around, I immediately think of my grandpa. He often made the trek north to Alaska with a few buddies and brought back lots of fresh crab and halibut for us to enjoy throughout the year. Halibut is just so pleasant. Light, flaky, mild and versatile, too. You can prep this white fish almost any way you please. Whether you’re simply adding a few fresh herbs and oil for pan-searing or getting a little crazy and deep-frying big chunks to a golden brown with some salt — that’s how grandpa like it — halibut can handle all comers.
