As the weather warms, our bakers churn out a fresh variety of options to savor al fresco at your potlucks, picnics and parties.

They’re baked fresh and crafted from organic flour and sugar for pure satisfaction. You’ll also find a trio of 9-inch fresh-baked pies to try this summer: sweet and tangy Strawberry Rhubarb Pie, a light and lovely, crumb-topped Pear Cream Pie, and our classic Apple Pie, each baked with organic flour and sugar.

Local energy beverages
We’re pleased to add two new local beverages to our line-up in time for summer. Stay revved up for warm weather fun with Golazo, a Seattle-based line of non-GMO sports drinks formulated to hydrate or energize. Look for zesty flavors including Mango-Limon, Jamaica Punch and Mandarina. Eric’s Famous Energy sodas are microbrewed in Mill Creek, Wash., and available in glass bottles in four flavors: Original Cola, Root Beer, Vanilla and Goji Berry. Eric, an active father of four young boys, developed the sodas to keep his energy up without the jitters associated with many energy drinks.
