The holiday season is upon us! That means there is LOTS going on everywhere, but especially in Downtown Fredericksburg and at Kickshaws!
First and foremost, we wanted to thank everyone that came out and supported us and all our awesome fellow businesses this past weekend for Small Business Saturday. I don’t think any of us can quite fully express exactly how much our community support means to us and the future of our businesses and families. From startups to businesses who have been here for generations, we all thank you so much for your support and encouragement. As always, I remind folks that shopping small isn’t a one day event, continue to support your local businesses and help our community grow and thrive together.
This weekend is First Friday AND the Fredericksburg Christmas Parade! This weekend we are going to be mixing it up a bit and doing a First Friday Breakfast for Dinner! Instead of the Gluten-free Pancake Breakfast happening on Saturday morning, we are going to do gluten-free pancakes and French toast on Friday night. So if you have wanted to get to the pancake breakfast but Saturday mornings are a little challenging, come by for First Friday.
Saturday we will be offering drink specials on coffee, eggnog and mulled cider by the cup as well as warm cookies and muffins (all gluten-free and vegan) to help you get prepped for the parade. If you’re not feeling chilly, we will have a fresh keg of kombucha tapped and ready for your tummy health. Of course if you are feeling the nip of the chill and need some warm gear for the parade, hit up our friends at River Rock Outfitter for coats, hats, gloves and those amazing handwarmer thingies.
We are always trying to get the best new items in for you and are continuing to expand our stock. Most recent additions include:
Cultures for Health: kefir grains, yogurt starters and sour dough starters
Kiddos: Vegan and gluten-free noodles, locally owned and operated
Well Bee: Super fine ground almond flour (in my opinion as a baker, THE best almond flour for baking grain-free)
Montana Gold Bread Co.: Weekly deliveries on Thursdays each week of fresh local bread, free of all the junk. Montana Gold is a Richmond based bread company.
Traditional Medicinals Teas: Wonderful healing and soothing teas.
SimpleHerbals: Medicinal herbs created by Sharon from Terembry Farm.
Vital Proteins: We are now resellers for Vital Proteins and currently have Collagen Peptides in stock.
The Primal Kitchen: While we patiently wait for Chosen Foods to release their avocado oil mayo, we are starting to get The Primal Kitchen’s awesome mayo, also made with avocado oil.
There will be more and more new items hitting the shelves, so stop by soon!
Fresh Produce Club
The Fresh Produce Club has been humming along and while we are still working out some small hiccups (thanks SO much for all the patience from the current members!) things are going well. We are excited to be able to continue to offer some of the best fall and winter local produce as well as certified organic produce at a great price.
We are now taking new Fresh Produce Club members again starting in December for January start. If you interested in our Fresh Produce Club please shoot us a message at [email protected].
