Hi Everyone,

It’s going to be our weekly update of the new items we have on the shelf. So far the items for the week are as follows,

La Marouette Pinot Noir (Organic)

Lucinda & Millie Cabernet Sauvignon (Organic)

Lucinda & Millie Chardonnay (Organic)

This brings our organic wine selection up to 30 Bottles.

Harpoon IPA (Customer Requested)

Divina Organic Kalamata Olives

So far Cold Brew Coffee has been a success even though it is a bit of work. At the request of several people we are also going to try Cold Brewed Tea and see how we do with it. So if you still want your caffeine fix but want something cold come on in!

And the Callebaut bulk chocolate is now out on the shelf for sale. After playing around with ways to sell it repack seems to be the way we are going to go. Weights will vary (typically between .5 – 1 lb packs) but if you need a larger portion please let us know and we can break it out for you.

Also in the produce department we have the first few batches of local tomatoes and we have fully stocked shelves including produce from Stubborn Ox Farm (Org, Brooks), Two Fox Farm(Org, Brooks), Earth Dharma(Organic, Jackson) and Calyx Farm Morrill (Sustainable). A couple new items also include King Trumpets from North Spore and Lemons(Org) from Crown of Maine. So come on in and check our selection out!

Holiday Updates

Hi Folks,

Sorry we haven’t posted in a while but I think we’re finally into summer which means a lot more activity. We’re just reaching out to let you know that we are planning to open doors on July 4th at 9:30am so that folks can get morning coffee or any snacks they may want to munch on for the parade. We’ll be open until at least 5:00pm that day for any last minute needs. It’s supposed to be pretty hot on the 4th so if you need to escape from the heat we’ll have the A/C’s running, waters chilled, and the water cooler ready to go. We’ve attached the poster for all the Brooks events that are happening that day so we hope you get out and enjoy and have a safe holiday. See you all then!
