This week at Kickshaws!
We have a lot of things going on… a little overwhelming, but exciting! Today we will be welcoming our new refrigeration unit and yesterday our big freezer was hooked up! No more digging for your frozen goods! Sunday we will be closing for the day, but fear not, we will open again on Monday with a brand new look!
We are now carrying Carpe Donuts! If you don’t know Carpe Donut (and are a gluten eater) you really should. Carpe Donut is an awesome company that sources all materials locally and uses HEALTHY cooking oils! What?! A healthier donut? It couldn’t possible taste good though, right? Well… we have been sampling these donuts out and people adore them. (I can’t eat them, boo) We have customers that travel to Charlottesville JUST to get these donuts! Starting Monday we will have Carpe Donuts available for individual purchase at the counter.
Carytown Teas is one of our new vendors and they produce a beautiful line or gourmet teas. The Tummy Tonic is one of our favorites, but the others like the Madagascar Vanilla Roobios smell like heaven. The weather is getting chilly again, and these teas will help warm you up.
We just brought in No Bull Burgers and will be sampling these guys out along with our Scrumptious Pantry Heirloom Green Tomato Relish tomorrow between 12-4pm at the shop. If you aren’t sure about these burgers, come by and have a taste. We here only great things about them so far! No Bull is a veggie burger free of soy (texturized vegetable protein or TVP) GMO’s, are gluten-free and vegan!
For about four years, I have searched for a real bagel tasting bagel that I could eat sans the gluten. I have tried many bagels and have not really been all that satisfied. Sweet Note Bagels have totally hit the spot for us. They are gluten-free, vegan, and non-gmo! I was skeptical when we got them in, but one taste of the Pumpkin Spice bagel (with some Sweet Valley Cranberry Chevre!) and I was sold. We carry each flavor including Pumpkin Spice, Everything, Poppy Seed, Sesame Seed, Cinnamon Raisin and Plain.
We have our Fermentation Basics Workshop coming up this Monday (5:30 pm) at the shop. We will have Dawn Story of Farmstead Ferments (maker of the amazing fermented foods we carry) teaching about the basics on kraut making. After that we will be tackling kombucha brewing for beginners. The class fee is $25 and pre-registration is required. We still have a few spots open for the class, but it is limited. Call the shop, stop by or register using our shop link on the site.
We still have a few turkeys available for order with the Lockhart Family Farm. Quantities are limited, so if you still need your delicious, free-range, non-gmo turkey, give us a call or stop in to put down a deposit.
