Burgers made easy

In the meat and seafood department

Cut down on prep time by picking up a pack of preseasoned burger patties for your next summer cookout, whether you’re grilling in your backyard, at the beach or in the park. We have grill-ready patties made from PCC Grass-fed Beef and Country Natural Beef in flavors like Salt and Pepper; Bacon Cheddar; and Garlic Herb and Blue Cheese. We also have lamb patties available in Garlic Herb, and Peri Peri (an African-inspired blend of citrus, salt, garlic and spice). Both our ground beef and lamb are ground fresh daily in each store for top flavor and quality. Prefer seafood? You’ll find preseasoned wild salmon patties in Garlic, Spinach and Feta; and Jalapeño and Cilantro. Availability varies by location.


Gear up for the school year

In the mercantile department

Get ready for back to school with Dabbawalla Bags, based in Seattle. Suited for preschool and elementary age kids, Dabbawalla’s Lunch Bags are crafted from TPE, an innovative material that is insulated, 100 percent nontoxic and biodegradable. Available in an array of whimsical designs and bold colors, the lunch bags stand upright for easy packing and they’re machine washable.

Also check out Bento-Ware from Laptop Lunches. This eco-friendly line keeps food neatly separated, eliminating the need for plastic sandwich bags. The Bento Lunch Box contains three watertight containers along with two open containers. A special dip container is perfect for condiments, and there’s even a compartment for a fork and spoon. Bento-Ware is made in the U.S.; doesn’t contain lead, BPA, phthalates or PVC; and is dishwasher and microwave safe.
