All Wellness and Good
Want to get a jump on 2019? Order your Quo Vadis planners and supplies now.
Hey there, organized types, and those who’d like to be: Across the Way Manager Lisa Whitlock asks that you order your Quo Vadis 2019 planners and refills by July 15. She may only be placing one order this year and can’t possibly order all the versions with all their refills for store stock. In your preorder, please include which style, size and color you want, as well as how many you’d like. And don’t forget your name, member number and a phone number so she or someone on the ATW staff can reach you if need be.
Bulk & Beyond
Try the dried whole bananas. And get pumped for brown rice syrup in Mt. Airy.
Ambler Bulk Manager Sierra Dunn hopes shoppers will take a chance on the organic whole bananas she’s added. Fair warning: They look like something that got left in a corner of the kitchen too long. But they’re chewy and the right amount of sweet, and a small bag with three-plus is under $2.
Shifting from natural sweets to sweeteners, and from Ambler to Mt. Airy, Lundberg organic brown rice syrup ($3.75/lb.) is now available at The Incredible Bulk. Lundberg, of Richvale, CA, has been producing rice and rice products since 1937 and sponsored one of our $4 Friday Dinners in Ambler last month.
Going On in Grocery
Righteous chews from Uganda. And some new frozen meat choices from Applegate.
Ever on the lookout for healthy snacks, Ambler Grocery Manager Nancy Melley has brought in Amaziorganic dried plantain chips, papaya strips and jackfruit chews. They’re a D.C.-based, women-owned company that partners with growers in Uganda. (Chestnut Hill carries the plantain chips.)
Applegate has been a leader in processing natural, humanely raised meat for 30 years, and now the Hill has more of their offerings in its freezer section. Look for two types of chicken breakfast-sausage patties, as well as turkey burgers and the one-pound package of chicken nuggets. And don’t forget the uncured beef corn dogs and organic chicken maple sausage!
Cropping up at the Farm Market
Shosho’s Kitchen granolas are local and au naturale.
Anyone who frequents our Henry Got Crops Farm Market at the farm at Saul High School in Roxborough knows there are plenty of great local products for sale along with our hyper-local (read: GROWN RIGHT THERE) produce. Recently, Farm Market Manager Lauren Todd added Shosho’s Kitchen granolas ($7.50/bag) from West Philly. They’re made by Mary Wylesol, who developed them to provide a healthy, preservative-free snack for her own kids, and come in three flavors — banana walnut, pecan cherry and almond cranberry. Want to try before you buy? Mary will be at the market to demo them on Tuesday, July 24, from 3 to 6 p.m.
