Item Highlights

Rainbow Chard

Rainbow Swiss chard is distinguished by its bouquet of wrinkled, slightly savoyed rich green and bronze leaves and bright colored stems. The leaves grow upright and tall from a dense rosette of ribbed stems in a myriad of colors including gold, pink, orange, purple, red, and white with bright and pastel variations.


Chard is known to be a nutritional powerhouse vegetable packed with vitamins, nutrients and health benefits. Rainbow Swiss chard contains high levels of vitamins C, K, E, beta-carotene and the minerals manganese and zinc. Importantly, it also contains betalain. Betalin pigments have repeatedly been shown to support activity within the body’s detoxification process, activating and processing unwanted toxic substances.


Culinarily, rainbow chard is one of the most versatile ingredients in the kitchen. Amazing both raw and cooked, the leaves and stems provide a mild bitterness making it the perfect substitution for other greens such as kale or collards. Complimentary ingredients include citrus, garlic, peppers, & olive oil. Ideally paired with grains such as rice and barley, roasted meats, chicken, bacon, cream, cheeses such as pecorino and parmesan.

Anabasque

Landmark Creamery is run by two incredible women named Anna. Anna Landmark and Anna Thomas Bates have been curating creamy sheep milk and buttery pasture-grazed cows milk into handcrafted, beautiful, and delicious cheese out of Belleville, Wisconsin since 2013. What started as two women fighting to milk two feisty goats and a shorthorn cow has evolved into a farmside chemistry lab involving calculations and carefully balanced pH levels to create the perfect Wisconsin cheeses.

 
Anabasque is one of these perfect cheeses. Taking inspiration from the mountain cheeses in the Basque region of Spain, this cheese strikes the perfect balance between fruity and salty. A Wisconsin style homage to Ossau Iraty, expect a sweet aroma, mild salt, and hints of ewe’s milk. Perfect to pair with fresh sliced figs & Marcona almonds, both of which are available at Liberty Heights Fresh.

Sunny Ridge

Blakesville Creamery’s main goal is to humanely raise healthy goats using sustainable farming practices to produce the highest quality, handmade artisan cheeses. Blakesville started their farmstead creamery, meaning the cheeses are made on the same farm that the animals were raised, in 2020. Since then they have been constantly innovating and curating unique, delicious cheeses with the utmost care and attention on purity, quality, and flavor.

 
Sunny Ridge is styled after the French cheese St. Nectaire. The cheese is washed with Is/Was Brewing beer for the first few weeks of its life which helps break down the semi-firm paste. Perfectly clean and mild with hints of beautiful goat flavor. Sunny Ridge was recognized by the Good Food Foundation as “exceptionally delicious [and] also supports sustainability and social good.”

Sundried Tomatoes by Les Moulins Mahjoub

Les Moulins Mahjoub has been creating uncompromising, delicious foods since 1896. Their families roots originate in the town of Tebourba, Tunisia. A region that’s renowned for the quality and richness of its soil since the time of the Roman Empire. Since then, large quantities of grains, abundant olive harvests, and huge varieties of fruits and vegetables are the hallmark of the region.

Mahjoub Sundried Tomatoes are dried in the hot summer months of July and August. Four elements are involved: sun, air, salt, and the human hand. Picked when they’re bursting with flavor, the tomatoes are individually layered in glass jars and covered with extra virgin olive oil. This amazing tomato condiment can be used in marinades, dressings, or pizza/pasta sauce for complex Tunisian style flavors.

Askinosie Del Tambo, Ecuador, 70% Chocolate

The story of Askinosie started when Shawn Askinosie quit his successful law practices and suddenly fell in love with making chocolate from scratch. He dumped his entire life savings into starting a US based craft chocolate company and started traveling to remote regions of Ecuador, Tanzania, and the Amazon searching for exotic cocoa beans and small farmers to share the profits with. Fast forward to today and Askinosie Chocolate is one of the best and most widely recognized specialty chocolates in the US.

The chocolate from this particular bar is harvested and fermented by the farmer on the front of the package, Vitaliano Sarabia. His farm near San Jose Del Tambo, Ecuador produces the ethically farmed beans that Askinosie handcrafts their chocolate from. Expect notes of red fruit, bergamot orange, jasmine, & honey.
