(Posted Dec. 14, 2012) Well, Christmas is just about upon us! Everyone is ready right? We’re well stocked with the usual suspects – and their distant cousins – to meet your holiday needs.
We have an excellent selection of seedless satsumas from Rising C Ranch of California’s Central Valley. You’ll notice these satsumas have the steam and leaves still attached – so you can know it was just recently picked and be sure it’s the freshest and best tasting fruit available.
The entire citrus fruit category finally tastes the way it really should. The grapefruit from Florida and Texas are simply awesome. The Cara Cara oranges are arriving as we speak with the heirloom navel oranges set to arrive next week (perfect for the toe of that stocking, Santa!). And you’ll be glad to know that as far as citrus is concerned, the best is yet to come. I am looking forward to an outstanding season as we move into the New Year.
But I’m getting ahead of myself. First we do have to make it through the holidays. Check out our new fresh-made party trays in the Produce Markets. The Veggie Tray is made with the freshest vegetables available and is complete with our own special Ranch Dressing for dipping.
The Fruit tray comes with a fabulous lemon yogurt dip that really tastes great and the Black Bean Nacho Tray is made with “Better Beans” brand black beans and our own Pico de Gallo. It has just the right amount of kick to give it character. All these trays – made for us to our standards and delivered fresh and frequently – are on special Dec. 19-Jan. 1. That should ease the load a bit!
I’m keeping this short because I know everyone is busy getting ready – and that includes shopping lists, shopping and preparing food. I will have another update just after the Christmas holiday!
Merry Christmas to each and every one of you … and thank you very much! Joe
