Just in time for Valentine's Day – a stunning selection of fresh cut flowers from our most trusted floral partners. In every vibrant color, these flowers are incredibly fresh and were harvested merely days before arriving in our store.
Many of us take pride in knowing the origins of our produce, the names of our ranchers, and the history of the food on our plate. Why should our flowers by any different? With the on-going revelations of the factory flower industry, its treatment of its workers and the chemicals used in production, it is comforting to know there is an alternative. Our flowers are all California grown, with respect for the environment and the workers who bring these beautiful blooms to our homes.
Our stunning heritage roses come from Eufloria, a seven generation family-run company specializing in unique rose varietals raised in a responsible and sustainable manner. Consistently awarded and recognized as some of the most beautiful roses throughout the industry, the company was established in 1984 by Andy Koch and yields roses of rare quality and performance!
Koch's methods have set the standard for the industry. With an innovative, technologically advanced system, growers monitor such things as water schemes, nutrient dosage, CO2 levels, and greenhouse climate. These roses are grown hydroponically in specially treated coconut fiber, a natural byproduct of coconut production, treated with Integrated Pest Management (IPM, a practice where predator insects are released to control pests and reduce the use of harsh chemicals,) and given extraordinary care from before they're planted all the way to your hands. Their production techniques are honed after years of observation, practice, and tailoring their style to each specific varietal, in a specially designed low-energy facility.
Eufloria's connection to its workers also fosters a strong partnership that results in stunning flowers. Each employee is selected a specific rose breed to care for and "make it their own." This pride of ownership has translated to an average seven year tenure for employees, with some working there as long as twenty years.
Bright green, crunchy and appealing, Castelvetranos olives are rare in the US. With a meaty texture and nice buttery and briny flavor, the olives have not a hint of bitterness. This flavor is the result of a brine soak, rather than a cure in vinegar. Sometimes known as the "rich man's black olive," Castelvetranos are grown exclusively in western Sicily among the Belice River Valley, near the town of Castelvetrano. Enjoy on their own or paired with white wine and Marcona almonds.
Traditional English cheeses are the ideal pair for cold evenings, rich charcuterie, crusty bread and glass of port. At Liberty Heights Fresh we offer a bounty of cheeses to please even the most discriminating English cheese aficionado or the cheese novice.
Stilton is the quintessential English cheese. It is the only British cheese to have a Certification Trade Mark and an EU Protected Name, and can only be produced in the three counties of Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire. With deep blue veins and a crumbly, creamy texture, enjoy this cheese with nuts, crispy bread and a glass of sherry.
Stichelton revived the tradition of raw milk Stilton. According to regulations enacted in 1989, traditional Stilton must be made with pasteurized cow's milk. The cheesemakers, loving the rich flavors created by using raw milk instead, decided to craft their bleu following a century's long tradition and therefore named their cheese for the town where Stilton was first made. Aged for 4 – 6 months, Stichelton is a lush and lingering, complex bleu with notes of spice and toasted walnuts.
Cornish Yarg is a traditional English artisan cow's milk cheese with a creamy and crumbly texture and a delicate mushroomy flavor. The cheese is made by hand and wrapped in stinging nettle leaf. Enjoy with a glass of Cabernet or other bold red wine.

One of the greatest pleasures of the world, Beluga caviar, is also traditionally one of the most environmentally irresponsible to harvest. Now from Spain, a small group of visionary caviar experts have offered comparable quality caviar from sustainably grown sturgeon.
Decades ago the makers of Almas Ara caviar reintroduced the sturgeon to the cool, clean waters of Granada. Sustainably and organically raised, the caviar is not harvested until these great fish are 18 to 20 years old, and preserved in the Iranian tradition. The resulting caviar is the finest quality you will find outside of Iran.
The caviar offers a delicate texture in your mouth with very long flavors of walnut and cream. It is matured in tins for between 3 and 6 months. It is low in salt, consisting of smooth, whole, un-crushed eggs with a crisp bite. They have a silky texture without being oily. The interior is liquid and sweet, with no pasty or oily accents. And the sweetness has a long persistence, a sign of highest quality.
The incredible part of this caviar story is that the production of this caviar caused the reintroduction of the sturgeon to Granada. Over twenty years ago the owners of Almas Ara brought sturgeon from the river Po in Italy to repopulate the clean rivers of Granada. This Adriatic sturgeon, or 'Acipenser Naccarii' is the only indigenous Mediterranean sturgeon. And of the 28 or so species of sturgeon, it is one of the largest and slowest to mature.
These fish are allowed to live a normal pristine life in the crystal spring waters in the mountains of Granada. Unlike many wild sturgeon, which must fight pollution and overfishing, these fish live in high quality environments, where they enjoy healthy high protein organic diets and normal activity.
After 18 to 20 years these fish are finally ready to produce the prized eggs that will become world-class caviar. These are harvested and immediately salted. Only the top quality caviar is labeled under the Almas Ara brand - any low quality eggs are removed and sold elsewhere.
