Goodbye, Summer; Hello, You!

How now, brown cow?
Summer’s heat is holding steady, and we’re holding steady, too.  If you haven’t been in lately, you’ll find Green Onion the most family-friendly grocer in town, with many all-natural, hormone-free deli meats for your kids’ school lunches, Pequea Valley’s fantastic whole milk yogurt, and Hamilton Bakery’s sliced loaf bread, which we think is the best thing since, well, sliced bread.

And if you want to throw something uber-delicious into their lunches and yours, try the delicious Kinderhook Snacks—a hit at both the Lauraville Market on Tuesdays and the Green Onion every day.

As usual, our Kilby and Prigel milks are flying off the shelves, as are the two kinds of chocolate milk—made exclusively from local brown cows.  The rest of the cows are making plenty of our gourmet cheeses, and our own Winston Blick is whipping up a special pimento cheese.  You’ll love our patés, charcuteries, and three kinds of Zeke’s coffee, too.

When the weather cools, we’ll start serving up the chili, soups, and stocks, which you can eat here or take home.

As the summer of 2012 takes its usual sweet time saying goodbye to Baltimore, we look forward to saying hello to you.

Please note our new hours:
Tuesday—Thursday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Friday—Saturday, 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Sunday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Monday, CLOSED

good food is just a few tweaks away

If you’ve been holding your breath waiting for the opening of Green Onion, you’re about to catch that breath of fresh air—and fresh cheese, meat, produce, sauces, and more. In about three weeks—by the end of April—you’ll be standing in line waiting to catch the glint of Killer’s knife as he skillfully excises chicken and pig parts, wrapping them in paper for you to take home for dinner.

Walk by Green Onion, and peer in the windows. The paper’s down, the shelves are up, the cheese orders are in, and now the word is out.

· Meats by Genuine Food Co., Wagon Wheel Ranch, and other fine farms: beef,
chicken, pork, rabbit, and duck—local and less local, high quality, and hormone
free—and Clementine’s sausages
· Clementine specialties—stocks, broths, pickles, sauces, dressings, and more
· Cheeses—25 different kinds, all natural, hormone free
· Bread made exclusively for us by Hamilton Bakery
· Baked goods—mini versions of Clementine’s desserts by Peep
· Deli sandwiches
· Pastas by Field Day, rice, gluten-free goods
· Ice cream, milk, chocolate milk, and more from Prigel Family Creamery

· Eggs from Andy’s Eggs and Mingodale Farm

You can also pick up your CSAs here, whether it’s The Zahradka Farm CSA or our own Genuine Meat CSA. (Please check back for more details soon.)

Before we open, we’ll be patching the floor and walls, tweaking our equipment, and adding finishing touches here and there, like café tables in the front of the store. Before you know it, the bowling alley floors that serve as our countertops will be holding market bags brimming with the best food you can find.

We’re lookin’ good, and before spring is over, you’ll be cookin’ good.
