We’re proud to offer products from California companies such as Straus and Redwood Hill Farm. Check out our frozen selection of local and non-dairy ice creams, quick meals, and sustainably-grown produce.
We love Parmela Parmesan, but weren’t sure what to expect with their new line of treenut creamy cheeses & creamy pasta sauces.
Very simple ingredients (cashews, coconut oil, cultures, etc) = a simply delicious & very pleasing treat.
Our favorite creamy cheese is the Black Pepper, with its shout of peppercorn.
You can find a row of Parmela Creamery’s cheese (as well as the Parmesan) in our Chill section, across from the dried fruit.
Fallon Hills Ranch pasture-raised chicken eggs
New from Tomales Bay, Fallon Hills Ranch eggs are deeeelishyuss.
You can find these eggs with the rest of our, well, pasture-raised eggs.
(Fallon Hills Ranch is just over 310 acres of pasture for cows and sheep, with animal rotation to allow each field time between grazings to regenerate foliage – and maintain vigorous grasses and healthy animals. From time to time, Fallon Hills Ranch will offer a tour and sumptuous dinner.)
Living Apothecary kefir water and vegan almond milks
Luscious, tasty & very nourishing.
Local from Oakland!
It’s our new favorite thing.
We’re especially big fans of the almond milks, devoid of the heavy oils found in the other nut/seed milks on the market.
Find the kefir waters in our kombucha cooler, and find the vegan milks in our cooler milk section.
(Not pictured: Turmeric vegan milk.)

There is evidence of yogurt dating all the way back to 500 BCE, in the records of ancient Iran and India. Ancient India called the mixture of milk and honey “food of the gods.” Pliny the Elder wrote about nomadic tribes thickening milk “to a certain acidity.” Nomadic Turks recorded the use of yogurt in their texts.
In short, yogurt has been around.
And so now we have a couple of new containers for you! Choose from Jersey Cow milk transformed into luscious honey yogurt (St. Benoit), or organic, plain, lowfat yogurt (Clover Organic Farms) in a large tub.
