An Orange Blossom and Inventory!

Hi Folks-

Summer beautiful summer! Such a mood lifter! And don’t we need one? I said to Peter the other day “Can’t it just be over?” And of course it can’t although we would all love for that to be true. So we are sanitizing like crazy, insisting on masks, minding our social distancing, washing our hands (I did notice I had gone to one round only of happy birthday, I am back to two, don’t worry) and becoming somewhat of a connoisseur of hand sanitizer. Favorites so far, Barr Hill Bears and Grove Blood Orange.

Honestly the scent of the combination reminds me of the Prohibition Era cocktail the Orange Blossom. Here’s a quick recipe for that, I think it would particularly good with Barr Hill’s smokey TomCat Gin. Shake ingredients over ice and pour into a martini glass, ah, yum!

  • 1 ounce gin

  • 1 ounce sweet vermouth

  • 1 ounce orange juice

  • Garnish: orange wedge

I am so excited that we are getting a huge inventory delivery on Wednesday! Hopefully most of the items are in stock (we never know til it gets here). We took out shelves to make room for distancing so I have been wiggling stock around like mad. It will be so nice to have all our cool curry pastes and oils, yummy crackers, sushi supplies and all the good stuff back in stock. It’s been like suddenly living without my pantry and now its getting restocked.

The food case has spaghetti and meatballs, smoked gouda dip, pesto tortellini salad and all kinds of other goodies, check it out!

Fish orders are due by noon on Thursday. Minimum 1 Pound orders. We are definitely getting the hang of this. There will be some cod and salmon available both tomorrow and Thursday. Oysters and clams are available by the 25 count, don’t forget about the 2# bags of peeled and de-veined shrimp (great thing to keep in the freezer for a quick swanky dinner or BBQ) and there is Halibut again this week. King Salmon is available but the price is upwards of $32.00 a pound and we would need to have orders for 8 or more pounds before buying. We have 8 SOFT SHELL CRABS available, coming on Thursday, please call the market to reserve.

If you want chicken breast, chicken legs, sausage or steaks please also let us know and we will try to get that all in house as well.

Special orders are ready after 2 on Friday and any extra fish would be available in the front cooler at that point (we do not reserve this).

  • Halibut

  • Haddock

  • Icelandic Arctic Char
