Spring is here! Lots of fresh, new items are on the shelves that will satisfy your taste buds as well as your dietary needs. Quinoa flour, walnut butter, raw bulk almonds, seaweed snacks, sprouted wheat flour, Pu-erh teas, organic diced peaches and pears (lunchbox size!), and more. Keep an eye on the bulk bins too for new items to satisfy your culinary needs and budget. Grains, sweets, and flours will become more rotational/seasonal as owner requests continue to help us supply the items you need.
If you’re new to bulk shopping, feel free to ask any Co-op employee for assistance. We have three different size, resealable containers and various bags for everyday use, or feel free to bring in your own container to refill. Buy as much or as little as you need! Savings in bulk are tremendous when compared to purchasing packaged products of similar quality. Don’t pay for fancy box labels – buy in bulk and SAVE!!
As Earth Day approaches, support your eco-friendly lifestyle by shopping at Tidal Creek. With fair trade, certified organic, biodynamic and sustainable products, our selection is one of the largest and most diverse in the area. If your plans include outdoor dining, be sure to try our compostable, disposable cups, plates, forks, spoons, etc! Compostable trash bags from Bio Bags are a must-have for the earth too! The company also makes compostable pet waste bags to keep your little critters on the eco-train as well.
As outdoor temperatures rise, you can hydrate with organic, all-natural juices as well as functional waters from the Co-op. Look for upcoming sales and displays on all your favorite drinks. For even bigger savings, Owners can always special order a case or more for an extra 10% discount on top of the sale price!
Our herb department has nearly completed its transition into larger, easy-pour, glass jars. Feedback has brought back a few favorites and Brandon is always happy to hear your requests. Sprouting seeds and supplies are back too. Remember to look for edible chia seeds in the bulk bins, while sprouting chia is in the herb section!
Tidal Creek’s beer and wine department continues to bring in a rotating selection of quality, craft elixirs for all tastes and preferences. Organic, vegan (yes, vegan!), biodynamic, no sulfites added, domestic, imported, and more are just a sampling of the selection offered. If you have any questions feel free to call or ask any Co-op associate for information. Special orders are always welcome! 10% case discount applies here too!
As we continue to push forward in our 30th year of being Wilmington’s only cooperative food market, remember that we are here for you. If you have questions, special needs, dietary issues, or GMO concerns, please don’t hesitate to ask any associate for help.
Happy Spring from the Grocery Team
