Join us for a Summer Tasting Social this Saturday!

Kick off summer fun (and eating!) at our Summer Tasting Social this Saturday, June 23, 11am to 4pm, at our new Grand Army Plaza location. Stop by to say hello, check out our largest store in Brooklyn, enter to win a $150 gift card and discover something new by sampling some of the delicious local foods we feature in our stores.

Just look for the bright blue truck! We’re thrilled to be the very first stop when Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream’s Sweet Treats truck hits the streets of New York City for the first time in six years. Jeni’s will be scooping ice cream from the truck, parked out in front of our store and packed with signature and seasonal flavors during our Summer Tasting Social. To celebrate, Jeni’s pints will be on special for $2.00 off through July 4 in all of our store locations.


Recipe: Wilted Lettuces with Fresh Fava Beans

Fava beans are one of the great gifts of spring once warm weather arrives. These tender little beans have a nutty, fresh flavor and their lovely bright-green color is the perfect addition to any salad, pasta, or stir-fry.

In this recipe we’ve paired them with a colorful medley of lettuces which we briefly sauté in hot oil before tossing them all in a zesty, herby vinaigrette that makes a great side dish to serve alongside meat or seafood fresh from the grill.


Let the Grilling Begin!

As we gear up to celebrate the unofficial start of summer this Memorial Day weekend, one question looms large: what to throw on the grill? Not to worry, we’ve got lots of options and ideas to make your cookout complete, from meat to seafood to veggie-driven dishes.

Of course, there’s classic cookout fare, like BBQ chicken, baby back ribs, and hot dogs and burgers of all kinds. When it comes to burgers, we’re delighted to now offer ready-to-cook turkey burger patties from family-run local favorite DiPaola Turkey Farm, available Fridays through Tuesdays at all five of our store locations. These turkey burgers are unbelievably fresh and juicy—plus they’re easy to throw on the grill and they’re on special $3.00 off per pound this weekend!

Recipe: Pickled Spring Vegetables

It’s finally the time of year when beautiful multicolored radishes are popping up and things are beginning to look colorful again in the produce aisle.

This recipe for bright and delicious refrigerator pickles is the perfect way to highlight the best of the season’s produce, and our technique eliminates the need for processing the preserves without steamers, special jars, or vacuum-sealed lids.


Our Market Picks: Spring Edition

Every so often we like to give our shoppers a little peak at all the things we’re most excited about at our stores—seasonal produce, popular new products, or something different and intriguing that we think you’ll love.

In this installment of Our Market Picks we showcase lovely spring produce, from a whole rainbow assortment of radishes to fiddlehead ferns and ramps, plus we’ve put together a list of what’s delicious and new at our stores, including a spectacular American-made prosciutto, an award-winning new cheese, and unbelievably good coconut-based desserts.


Lamb Loin Chops with Shaved Brussels Sprout Salad

With the weather warming up, we’re already in the mood for summer cookouts, even if it’s still early spring. Why not get a head start with a recipe that features spring lamb and doesn’t require any grilling outdoors?

These lamb loin chops are first dusted with quatre épices (a special four-spice blend) and then pan-roasted on the stovetop. They’re earthy, full of flavor, and quick to cook, and they go beautifully with a simple salad of shaved Brussels sprouts tossed with a lively, herb-spiked dressing.
