Holiday Menu & Treats
2020 Holiday Menu and Order Form
If you’re opening this newsletter on the day we’re sending it, Happy Halloween! And that means Thanksgiving will be here before you know it. Our Holiday Menu is up with everything you need for a delicious dinner. Please be sure to read the instructions at the top of the menu—ordering needs to adhere to specific Covid guidelines this year. You’ll find details in the notice at the top of the order form; meanwhile, here are some of the most important things to note:
- All orders, including curbside produce pickup, MUST be placed by 3 p.m. on November 22. This is a strict deadline.
- Curbside orders must be prepaid with no changes or additions.
- Gluten-free pies (apple, pumpkin, pecan) must be ordered by November 18.
We’ll be open regular hours (9 a.m. – 5 p.m.) for in-store shopping through Wednesday, November 25 (the day before Thanksgiving); on Thanksgiving Day, we’ll be open from 9 a.m. – 11 a.m. for in-store shopping. Our produce cases will be fully stocked and we’ll have plenty of pies available.
Ed and I have been overwhelmed by (in a good way!) and so grateful for the outpouring of support and love regarding our retirement. We’ll keep you updated on any new developments, but meanwhile, please be assured that we’ll continue doing business as usual and serving our community right through December 24, as always.
New Cold Weather Entrance
When the weather outside is frightful—or just too cold—we’ll be keeping our front door closed and opening the covered side door (where garden pots are located in spring and summer) to use as an entrance. On nice days our front entry door will be open as usual. We’ll still have separate entrance and exit doors in either case, just use the side door as an entrance if the front door is closed.
Pumpkins, Pumpkins Everywhere…
…And especially in our seasonal treats! Our homemade pumpkin bread and cranberry bars are still available and we’ll continue making them through the end of the year. We also anticipate continuing to make our apple cider donuts through Thanksgiving. To top it all off, we have Arctic pumpkin ice cream in stock as well as pumpkin pies.
Original Artwork by Greg Pontier
Our multi-talented baker, Greg, whose artwork has enriched our walls, has decided to make his original comic book art available for sale! These pieces would make a lively, colorful addition to homes and offices, and they’re also great as holiday gifts. Buy whichever one(s) you want and you can take it home the same day.
Sweets and Treats
Did you see Michelle’s homemade sugar cookies in Halloween shapes? They’re delicious, fun and fanciful, and she’ll be making more cutout sugar cookies right through the holidays. They’re perfect as a cheerful weekday/weekend treat or for your holiday table!
We now have Le Bus Bakery iced lemon pound cake in our market, a popular crowd pleaser. And we still have a full range of other Le Bus breads and scones available too!
