Fresh in the Deli

Wow, it’s getting hot out there!
So come on in, cool off, and hydrate yourself with a cold Deli drink! Our Grab’n’Go Icebox in front of the Deli Counter is filled with our tasty, icy beverages for you to grab-n-gulp with no wait! You will likely find our infamously eye-opening Iced Coffee Toddy, our sweet and fruity Gingerade, our simply sweetened Agave Lemonade and our delightfully pink and refreshing Hibiscus Mint Iced Tea! Also making its seasonal return is our lean, green Cucumber Agua Fresca! The Cuke Fresca is deceptively simple – cucumber, water, fresh lime juice and organic raw agave syrup are blended together into a chilled masterpiece of thirst-quenching bliss, so c’mon in and try this delicious and good-for-you drink!

Our delicious, seasonal drinks are also available from our Deli Counter to get you in the springtime spirit! Looking for a caffeinated pick-me-up? Sidle up to our organic, fair-trade espresso bar for an Irish Cream Latte, subtly flavored with a shot of alcohol-free Irish Cream syrup and blended to perfection with your choice of milk – cow, soy, rice, coconut or almond! Or maybe you’d prefer our Honey Nut Latte! This sweet treat blends our espresso with hazelnut syrup, local Goodflow honey, cinnamon and your choice of milk to make one fantastic cuppa Joe – get it hot or iced! Our Vanilla Iced Coffee Toddy puts a spin on our cold-brewed best-seller, adding a touch of warm vanilla syrup to this caffeinated classic! Looking to lose the caffeine? Try a cup of our fantastic Hibiscus Lemonade, a pretty and delightful split of our Hibiscus Mint Tea and Agave Lemonade! Bottoms up!
Save a dollar on a Garden Bagel! Your favorite RockStar bagel is toasted, spread with cream cheese & topped with sliced cucumbers, tomatoes & red onions by our Deli staff, just $2.99, reg. $3.99! The Garden Bagel is perfect for a light but filling breakfast or lunch!

Another great sale for spring is the Deli’s very own Strawberry Peach Drinkable Yogurt, on sale for $4.99, reg $5.99. Local White Mountain non-fat plain yogurt blended with peaches and strawberries and sweetened with a touch of raw, agave nectar. This good for you drink is perfect as a meal starter or can stand alone!

Our new Fresh in the Deli recipe this month is Broccoli and Tempeh Szechwaun. Co-ops chefs from around the country share their favorite seasonal recipe with your local co-op for this regular feature. This recipe comes to us from Food Front Cooperative Grocery in Portland, Oregon. You can check their co-op here: . This dish features bite-sized chunks of local tempeh, which is marinated and roasted and combined with an assortment of fresh raw veggies.

Our new Featured Salsa, Poblano Salsa, is spicy, tangy and delicious! This is a real favorite with great flavor and is fabulous with just a bowlful of staff-favorite El Milagro corn chips for dippin’. Try some of this emerald delight on your taco or order of $1.99 Brown Rice and Black Beans today!

Also this month, our Featured Smoothie is the Shamrock Smoothie; Apples and peaches, sweetened with apple juice and then topped off with a healthy dose of fresh spinach makes this smoothie a real treat!

On sale at the Deli Counter through the end of March are tasty cold cuts, sliced to order: Boar’s Head Honey Maple Ham at $8.49/lb, reg. $8.99 and Pepperjack Cheese, $6.19/lb, reg. $7.19! C’mon in and stock up on your lunchbox staples!  These are perfectly paired as a hot Panini style sandwich – just add spinach and sautéed onions.

Our talented bakers have been baking cookies all day and delivering them fresh to our bakery case. Our Chocolate Chip and Cashew butter Cookies are so good that vegans and non-vegans alike love them. Black Forest Cookies are chewy and crispy at the same time and packed with chocolate chunks and tart dried organic cherries. They are amazing!

We are setting the shelves with warm LaBrea artisan breads ready to you to grab-n-go at 5:00pm. Swing by after work and pick up a warm loaf of bread. The Demi Sourdough Baguette is sized for sharing. Sometimes getting a whole baguette is just too much, this Demi Baguette lets you enjoy a baguette without the guilt of the leftovers going to waste.
