Other Avenues: Kid Friendly, Parent Approved

Jeremy : January 20, 2016 8:52 pm : Highlights


Young patrons eating Vicolo pizza at OA.

Other Avenues is a multi-generational community. Not only have parents worked at OA, but workers’ children have grown up at our collective. Shoppers have grown up at Other Avenues, and now they are raising their children with the good food we offer.

We’re just a hop, skip and a jump from Blue Boat Playground and just a few blocks away from the beach.  Come in for a healthy lunch or treat after a busy day!

Here’s the deal. These will the be fluffiest, scrumptiest pancakes you’ll ever make - and you won’t know these are gluten-free! That’s probably the best part. wholesome chow gluten free pancakes

Wholesome Chow has a damn good all-purpose mix that we like to use for pancakes. Especially on Saturday mornings. But this new Hi-Protein Pancake Mix, with organic sprouted brown rice protein along with other organic flours, is a whole other thing of fluffy heaven.

Certified organic strawberries.

Swanton Berry farms strawberries

Strawberries rock. Strawberry pie is the best. IMG_0672Second only to strawberry-rhubarb puddin’ cake.

We’re thinking of that Buddhist story about a woman who’s stuck on the side of a cliff, tiger below & tiger above.  She climbs a vine to get away from one tiger, only to find another. The woman looks at the vine that got her there, and sees two mice gnawing at the vine. Then she sees a wild strawberry growing on the vine, and eats it.

The strawberry is delicious.

AsparagusCertified organic Asparagus

We’ve been waiting for the arrival of asparagus, heralding longer daylight hours, our inevitable march towards the vernal equinox.

Anna Thomas (Love Soup) created a fresh, bright green soup with asparagus, fennel and snap peas.

This is what we’ll make! What will you do with your asparagus?

From the Island of Tangerina

Tangerines 2015Certified Organic Tangerines

These are the tangerines you’d find on the Island of Tangerina.

So orange! Sweet! Did we say round? And – orange? Yes, but we’ll say it again: Let the citrus abound, it’s so orange!

We’ve been struggling with a tangerine pie, because we keep eating the tangerines before the pie is made. There’s always lemon meringue…

Gypsy Rose Raw Milk Goat Cheese

Other Avenues is proud to offer Gypsy Cheese Company Cheeses!

The story behind the cheese is kind of a dream story: Jon & Lauren Bowne founded Gypsy Cheese Co. in 2013, after working as attorneys in SF. They dreamed big enough to quick their day jobs and pursue cheesemaking in rural Valley Ford.

The Bownes craft their cheese by hand in small batches, using the best local milk.

gypsy rose cheeseWe admit it. We’re in love with Gypsy Rose & the smaller Rosebud cheese rounds:

The rind is a delicate orange/pink hue – all from a whey-brine during the aging process. The texture of the cheese is soft & yielding.

Statement about Eden Foods

kes : July 30, 2014 4:31 am : Artisan Foods, Highlights

Dear customers,

After much consideration, Other Avenues has decided to remove all Eden Foods products from our shelves, in light of their stance against the Affordable Care Act, which requires employers of more than 50 individuals to cover “all Food and Drug Administration approved contraceptive methods, sterilization procedures, and patient education and counseling for women with reproductive capacity.”

While we appreciate Eden Foods commitment to other political causes such as the non-GMO movement, we are saddened by their decision to fight against providing basic reproductive health services to their own employees, and cannot in good conscience continue to carry their products so long as they continue to oppose this fundamental right.

Thanks, in advance, for your understanding and support of our decision. We hope the inconvenience will be far greater to Eden Foods than to you.
