Budget Bundles

Grafton Cheddar Cheese is an excellent kitchen staple. This mild cheddar cheese is versatile and can be added to tacos, grilled cheese, quiche, on top of a bowl of chili; paired with fresh apple slices and crackers; or cheese and bean enchiladas made with corn or flour tortillas, spinach, in a simple tomato sauce. Serve with a dollop of sheep milk skyr or yogurt and freshly chopped cilantro.

Have you tried… 

Smoked salmon from Starbird Fish has a delightful balance of applewood smoke, VT maple syrup and salt, and a medium dry and tender texture. This is a 'hot smoked' salmon, meaning it is cooked during the smoking process and the flavor is mild and lightly sweet, not spicy, as the name implies. Enjoy on its own; with cream cheese and a slice of tomato on toast or a bagel; or make a quick dinner of caramelized onions, cream and smoked salmon served over fresh pasta.

New & Noteworthy

Bakery & Prepared: 

  • Patchwork Bakery breads, bagels and matzoh crackers are back this week! Charlie’s sourdough breads and bagels make some of the best toast for breakfast or to serve with soup. Read all about his unique matzoh in this article. 
  • Bean Chowder is an unusual (but delicious!) combination of yellow eye beans, tomatoes and cream. Savory yet slightly sweet, serve with a fresh green salad and your favorite fresh bread

Dairy: 

  • Fresh 1%, 2%, whole and creamline milk from Strafford Organic Creamery is no longer limited! These items will now stay in your weekly order, unless you remove it. Thanks for your patience during that unexpected dry spell.
