Like it or not, back-to-school season is hurtling toward us at breakneck speed. And though the summer sun continues to warm our face and take the edge off the swimming pool’s icy waters, it’s time to start thinking brown bag lunches and grab-on-your-way-out-the-door breakfasts. The easiest way to stave off the September Scaries is to […]
Name That Grape
When it comes to Pretty Lady grapes, there’s much more to it than the simple question of “red” or “green.” Our grapes are multifaceted, nuanced, subtle, and surprising—in both appearance and flavor. Since grape season is just about in full swing, you’ll be getting more and more questions about your selection: flavor profile, availability, maybe […]
Get Ready for Grapes
It’s time to get ready for grape season. Bountiful fruit salad (red and green and black/mixed varieties, please and thank you), frozen grape “cubes,” and refreshing smoothies await. Can’t you just taste them? It’s what summer is all about. And, of course, Pretty Lady grapes are delicious all on their own—crisp and cool and fresh […]

Ho, boy! It’s Hobgoblin time!
Our Hobgoblin-branded merchandise boxes and cartons are natural superstars (or, for this time of year, “supernatural stars”) of the Halloween aisle, but a little birdie (in a bat costume) told us that these autumnal displays add a distinct fall flair to produce sections all season long. Healthy Halloween options that are actually fun and actually […]

Un-boring Your Brown Bag!
It may not feel like fall, but fall is, I assure you, bearing down on us like a pumpkin-spice-latte-bedecked freight train. Visions of PB&Js and baby carrots are dancing through our heads as we try to unlock the secret formula that will keep our crafty kiddos from dropping a half-eaten lunch into the wastebasket. Fruit […]
I wish they all could be California…
graaaaaappeeesss! With apologies to The Beach Boys, we think this sentiment couldn’t be more true. California is technically a newb when it comes to grape cultivation, because the Golden State has been in the biz for “only” 200 years (a mere fraction of the 8,000 years the human race has been growing grapes). So how […]
Get ready, get set…
Grape! I mean, almost. We’re not quite there yet, but we only have mere metaphorical minutes before grape season is upon us; so it’s time to dust off the ol’ green (or red, or black) textbook and prep the produce section for summer’s most poppable treat. You’re a busy grocer, and we’re busy grape-ists, so […]
The grapes are coming! The grapes are coming!
Okay, so maybe there won’t be a Paul Revere-esque horseman riding through the streets heralding the coming of Pretty Lady grape season, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be prepared. Start thinking bountiful fruit salad, frozen “grape-sicles,” and refreshing smoothies now so you’ll be all set to purchase and pop ’em in your mouth when […]
