Hi Wheatsville friends!
The G-r-r-rill Off last weekend was a big success! Vegetarians really
loved the Boca and Tofurky brats a lot.
Applegate Farms Organic Chicken and Turkey Spinach Feta sausage links
were the big favorite on the meat side!
Bike to work day was great! We had the biggest turnout we've seen for
our breakfast station! Thanks for biking to work!
Memorial Day weekend is here and even though the weather may not
cooperate, we will have picnic and barbecue items available for you!
The deli will be ready to help you celebrate with pasta salads, potato
salads, coleslaws, and gazpacho! We will be putting these into 24 oz
containers for easy picnic taking ability (Even if the picnic is in
your living room!) we will also have wings and bbq chicken in our self
serve case if you can't get to grill.
Berry, Berry delicious!
Wowza! We've got a nice array of berries today! Including some LOCAL
Blackberries! Get 'em while you can!
We also have peaches from the Hill Country! Peach season never lasts
long enough, so eat peaches now!
I can also report that I have spied Organic Cherries in the produce
department today, too!
In the meat department
We have Coleman Natural NY strips on member coupon for 50 cents off.
Our meat guy, Bryan has asked me to talk up our new grass fed beef
purveyor, the Bastrop Cattle Company. We are happy to start up a
relationship with these nice folks and their high quality beef.
Here are some tidbits of information from their pamphlet:
They sell only cattle that are raised locally. That way they know
exactly where every single one of their calves come from and you do,
too! They are raised on the ranches where they are born and they are
free ranging their entire life.
Right out of the gate we'll have ground chuck and round steak cutlets,
but with demand and supply, we may add additional cuts in the future!
GIve it a try and let us know what you think!
It took us some work to hook up with these folks, but we continue to
strive to find the best local products we can for our member-owners!
CO-op Advantage Coupons and May specials!
This is the last weekend for May Co-op Advantage specials, so you
should stick up if there are favorites on sale! (Don't worry, we'll
have more items on sale in June!) Also, our Co-op Advantage Coupon

the next week!

Wheatsville was mentioned (sort of!) in an article in the New Yorker
http://tinyurl.com/28fteu In an essay called One Minus One by Colm
Toibin. (Thanks to sharp-eyed member-owner Joe Liro for seeing this and
letting us know!
Here is an excerpt:
"I am walking. No one else is walking. It is hard to cross Guadalupe;
the cars come fast. In the Community Whole Food Store, where all are
welcome, the girl at the checkout asks me if I would like to join the
store’s club. If I pay seventy dollars, my membership, she says, will
never expire, and I will get a seven-per-cent discount on all purchases.
Six years. Six hours. Seventy dollars. Seven per cent. I tell her I am
here for a few months only, and she smiles and says that I am welcome.
I smile back. I can still smile. If I called you now, it would be half
two in the morning; you could easily be awake."
I hope that you have a great weekend and week!
