of the Week

Pasta e fagioli, sometimes shortened to pasta fagioli, is a classic Italian soup. Its name literally translates to “pasta and beans,” and it consists of tiny pasta, creamy beans, and tender vegetables in a fragrant tomato broth. This recipe is great because the ingredients are largely pantry staples. AND the combination of pasta, beans, and veggies makes it a satisfying standalone meal. Find the recipe from Love & Lemons here. Perfect for using the greens, carrots, and onions from your Share!


Pantry Items

Preview of Items on Sale!

Here’s a preview of some of the pantry items that will be on sale this week!

  • Brewer’s Pita Chips- Brewer’s uses up-cycled grains from the beer brewing process to create their wonderfully crunchy and delicious pita chips! This is minimizing food waste at it’s best! Try both the rosemary and sea salt flavors. 
  • Sweet Potato Pierogis from Jaju- A Jaju original!  Slow roasted sweet potatoes tossed with caramelized onions and spices. Wrapped in dough, it creates a simple but delicious balance of sweet and savory.
  • Maple Brittle from Sweet on Vermont Chocolates- Think English toffee with crushed almonds made with pure Vermont maple syrup and creamy Vermont butter. Snapping-crisp, buttery and not overly sweet, this all-natural confection is handmade in small batches, and dipped in dark chocolate for that extra level of indulgence!
  • Blueberry Pancake Mix from Ben’s Sugar Shack- Made with real buttermilk and blueberries, this is perfect to whip up a quick, delicious Sunday breakfast or brunch!

Dairy Items

Smoked Chili Cheddar Cheese from Grafton Village

Grafton’s Smoked Chili Cheddar is a rich cheese with no shortage of flavor. This cheddar is infused with habañero, jalapeño and pasilla peppers for the right balance of chili flavor and spice. The cheese is then cold-smoked over maple and hardwood chips, adding a woodsy depth to balance its bright spicy flavors. The dominating aromas of smoke and chili are grounded by a creamy texture and buttery flavors in this cheese, balancing yin with yang. Smoked Chili Cheddar is very meltable; use it to add smoky spice to burgers, poutine or grilled cheese sandwiches.


Protein Items

Sirloin Steak from Robie Farm

Looking to make a scrumptious steak dinner? Look no further! We stock Robie Farm’s Sirloin Steaks which are great for grilling or pan-searing. These steaks are richly marbled, juicy, tender, and loaded with flavor! Not to mention humanely raised, growth hormone-free, and all natural. 

Thank you & we'll see you soon!
