We're practically giving beer away!

When warehouses need to be cleared we reap the benefits. Weyerbacher Slam Dunkel (22 oz.) was $3.93 and is now $1.71 and Anderson Valley Winter Ale (12 oz.) is regularly $2.06 and is now $0.50! Both beers are considered seasonal but they make for fine drinking on a cool spring night. You could also cellar them and drink them it the fall at these prices. Whilst supplies last.

cheers, Anngel

Fine Dining in the Summertime

Just in time for the Memorial Day summer kickoff, we have Fox Hill Farm's 100% grass-fed all beef frankfurters!

Way up the Hudson River Valley in the foothills of the Berkshire mountains, Larry and Erna Lampman of Ancramdale raise Heritage cattle breeds -- Red Devon, British White, Murray Grey -- on land that's been in the family for generations. They've long been preparing custom cuts of beef to consumer specifications. And now they're making delicious, nitrate-free hot dogs with a natural casing, which provides that good old-fashioned snap when you bite into 'em.

Brooklyn has always been the Hot Dog Capital of the USA, and the Fox Hill Farm frank is a worthy new addition to our historic sausage culture. A wiener every time.

A Sad Day in Yogurt Land

Yogurt Pioneer Daniel Carasso died yesterday at the ripe old age of 103. You may know him by his nickname "Danny" or, in Catalon "Danon." Yes, he is the Danon behind the international conglomerate the Danone Group - known in America as Dannon. You might find some of his products in our very own yogurt case.

We sell one flavor of Dannon yogurt (Coffee) but we also sell Dannon-owned Stonyfield Farms. It's hard to imagine Yogurt Land without Dannon. Local favorites Evans, Butterworks, Seven Stars, Siggi's and Liberte might get lonely on those shelves...

Cardoons and Rhuuuuubarb!

Okay you Batali fans . . . hold onto your orange clogs, the elusive "cardi" – cardoons to the rest of us – are making a cameo appearance at the Coop.

No need to sub artichokes for this very, very Italian vegetable for a wee while.

Located next to another seasonal gem, organic rhubarb.

Holy cow,
