Each year, when August rolls around, the first figs arrive. We exclaim, “Figs!” As if this August were the first. It’s always like the first time, with a delicate fig. We’re not going to tell you how to eat a fig. Just that – these are so moist and delightfully sweet.

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.

Find these favas by our eggplant and artichoke. Mmm!
Strawberries rock. Strawberry pie is the best. Second 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.
We’re the first to admit that we’ll hit the road without packing drinks and food. We do that.
But it’s silly, because we’ll inevitably need a bite to eat or drink somewhere far away from our city of veritable food & libation.
Our 40 oz Klean Kanteens and – shall we say –
sexy To-Go Ware will take care of that this summer. Cheers!
We’ve been waiting for the arrival of asparagus, heralding longer daylight hours, our inevitable march towards the vernal equinox.
This is what we’ll make! What will you do with your asparagus?
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…
