Artichokes Return and a New Arrival to Our Seafood Markets

Author

Copywriter Chris Allen

Last week it was threatening snow. Suddenly I’m rummaging through my bathroom drawers for the sunscreen. It’s weather whiplash! Luckily our trusty Big Board is full of deliciousness no matter the temperature and our Produce markets are ready for the seasonal transition. And we’ve got a new arrival in our Seafood Market that I’m excited to share. Seasonal Spring Veggies are Back in Town …

‘Laughter is Brightest
Where Food is Best’
_ An Irish Proverb

Author

Copywriter Chris Allen

“Bless us with good food,the gift of gab and hearty laughter. May the love and joy we share,be with us ever after!” – Irish Kitchen Prayer   St. Patrick may be the patron saint of Ireland, but many St. Patrick’s Day traditions were born in the United States (so writes Christopher Klein on history.com). So, you know, it’s kind of an American thing. And while you probably won’t see too many grinning …

So Much Culinary Joy:
New Chickens Arrive!
Fish Fridays Return!

I feel spoiled this week. Not only are we launching our exclusive Skagit Red chicken today but our Seafood Markets will be heralding the triumphant return of Fish Fridays! Save $4.01 lb. on our fresh, high-quality Blue North cod all day long while enjoying delicious samples. If meat and seafood aren’t your thing, we’ve also got some crunchy, fairly traded cashews from Equal Exchange that directly support farmers in India. What an embarrassment of culinary riches! If you can’t decide what to eat, you’re supposed to eat everything, right? [caption id=”attachment_32401″ …

Mardi Gras is here!

This week, I’ll be enjoying authentic, New Orleans-style treats both savory and sweet in our markets. Join me! Culinary Goes for Authentic Experience …

Their Pasta, Our Butter
and Your Inspiration

Author

Copywriter Chris Allen

I don’t watch a lot of sports but for some reason I love sports talk radio. Every year, my favorite show complains about the February “dead zone” — no football, no baseball and basketball takes a week off. Sometimes the February dinner table can feel a little sparse or “samey,” too. But I’ve got a few ideas for giving even those tried-and-true meals a jolt of inspiration on a gray winter’s day. And don’t forget Our Own Soups are officially on Big Board Buys this week! Get two 22-oz. packs for $9, a savings of nearly $6. These exclusive soups and stews are made just …

Big Snow, Our Own Soups & Halibut for V-Day

Author

Copywriter Chris Allen

Holy cow, now I haven’t seen a snow storm like that since I lived in Montana. I hope everybody is safe and warm. For those struggling without power, let’s hope the lights come back on soon. The good news is the temps are rising and hopefully the worst is over. A reporter from the Seattle Times, Mike Rosenberg, recently said that, during the run up to this storm, the biggest grocery sellers were, in order: avocados, sockeye salmon, and celery. CELERY. I love the Puget Sound. Our Own Soups Make the Perfect Meal Starters [caption id=”attachment_32239″ align=”alignright” …

Citrus, Love & Salmon
to Chase the Cold Away

Copywriter Chris Allen

As I poured another cup of piping-hot earl grey tea to finish defrosting my eyebrows Monday morning, I realized I’m somewhat relieved we live in a part of the world where February is actually the height of citrus season! It’s reminds me of warmer climates. It’s somewhere… Combat Gray with These Sunny Colors Melogold …

Time to Break Records
with Wings and Burgers

Copywriter Chris Allen

Nearly 180 million people will fire up their big screens to watch the “Big Game” (the real name is copyrighted and they don’t mess around!) this year. That’s more than half the nation! And what are we doing in between commercials, besides bathing in the glow of 4K high-definition? Eating. A lot. In fact, it is said that Americans eat more food on that special Sunday – as in this Sunday – than any other day except Thanksgiving. …

Big Board Buys is,
like Jackfruit, BIG

Author

Copywriter Chris Allen

Big Board Buys. Each week, the sign is posted on and in all our markets; an email called “All Our Best Deals” is mailed out to thousands; and a mini-version of the sign is posted to Facebook.  What’s all the fuss? It’s the most visible way we pass along the very best deals on some of the foods (and sometimes wine and flowers or plants) we love the most. It’s our weekly “Thank You” for stopping in (or our “loyalty program” that doesn’t ask you for any personal data!). It earned its name because it once was literally on a ‘big board’ outside the market …

Yes, Virginia, there ARE
Tasty Winter Tomatoes
(Bagels & Granola, too!)

Author

Copywriter Chris Allen

Many of us at T&C are settling back into those familiar eating routines and, for me this week, it’s about simple breakfasts on the go and light green salads at night. I guess that’s why I’m so glad our markets are so well-stocked with excellent eating options during both the peak of summer abundance AND the gray winter doldrums of January. …
