Dairy Items

On Sale! $9 for Lille Coulommiers Cheese

From the northern reaches of France comes the origin of our Coulommiers-style cheese and thicker ancestor to Brie, and the name itself, Lillé. Handmade in small batches, each wheel is a slightly different weight. Aged in its own special room, and lovingly turned regularly, the delicate rind develops evenly with a white downy bloom.

Vermont Farmstead Cheese Company gently cares for their land (in South Woodstock VT) and the lives of their animals to make fresh, quality, and artisan cheese available to all.

1-Year Aged Cheddar Cheese

Aged for one year to achieve the classic New England cheddar profile: comforting, lightly tangy, and rich. Try it paired with fresh grapes or sliced fresh apples for a juicy counterpoint to its rich and buttery flavors. 1 Year Cheddar is also perfect for melting. Grafton Village Cheese has been making award-winning local cheese in Grafton VT since the 180os.


Protein Items

Restock! Red’s Best Haddock

Red’s Best, out of Boston, brings 100% traceable, Atlantic caught seafood to New England. Red’s Best supports a network of local fishermen through processing, transportation, and distribution. Their traceability technology tracks your seafood from the ocean to dinner plate. This week’s supply of Haddock was caught by Hamilton Fisheries near Chatham MA. Haddock is in 1 lb packages, $15/lb, and arrives frozen.

Top with buttery breadcrumbs and bake at 400° until fish is opaque and breadcrumbs are browned. For more inspiration, try Haddock Piccata or Mustard Roasted Fish.

Robie Farm's Thighs & Drums

All-natural, 100% pasture free-ranging, growth hormone/antibiotic-free, and local chicken from Robie Farm.

Robie Farm is a small family farm owned and operated on the banks of the Connecticut River in Piermont, NH. All of their chickens are humanely raised right on their farm in movable pens on pastures (as opposed to indoor confinement).
