What’s your favorite summer memory? One of mine is sitting around munching on summer fruit at the beach or by the pool. I love cold fruit on a hot day. Summertime brings about some of the best fruit of the year; cherries, berries, mango, grapes, kiwi, and peaches. Of all the fruits available this season, peaches have to be one of the sweetest treats. The range of flavor from tart to sweet with the varying colors never ceases to amaze me. Is there a more perfect fruit to represent summer?
We have 4” and 8” seasonal fruit tarts available all year long, but this summer we are stoked to bring you our 8” Fresh Peach Tart that’s made with the sweetness of both yellow and white peaches layered in a beautiful design you will be proud to serve.
We take a vanilla cream filled buttery tart shell and top it with alternating super sweet white and yellow peach slices. We then use a light glaze to help keep the peaches from turning. The tart is gorgeous and will decorate any table… Read More
Living in Southern California, it would almost be sacrilegious to not love Mexican food, and nearly impossible to avoid Cinco de Mayo celebrations all around. So we invite you to celebrate with Bristol Farms and pick up all the necessary (and delicious) items to make your Cinco de Mayo meal complete from scratch.
The first stop should be to our Meat Department to grab something for your grill - my favorite is our Carne Asada. Tender, full of flavor, and on sale for $8.99 lb (save $4.00) thru May 5! Then onto our Deli for freshly made guacamole, salsa, and Chili Con Queso. Next you’re onto produce for avocados, limes, tomatoes, and lettuce. Stop by the inner aisles for chips, hot sauce, and soda. Don’t forget the cheese to make quesadillas for the little ones, and sour cream too for dipping!
What celebration is complete without the booze? We have a full line-up of Mexican beer and tequila - there's even a great deal on Sauza Silver or Gold Tequila for the holiday, and you can… Read More

Earth Day 1970 was originally focused on environmental concerns, and while it still focuses on concerns it has also become a day to recognize all the efforts that have been made to protect our environment. It has become a celebration of our Earth. This is a time to celebrate a simpler lifestyle which reduces the foot print we will leave for future generations. When there is a celebration, there should be food. Earth Day is a reason to break bread.
In honor of Earth Day, we'd like to call your attention to our delicious line of artisan breads. From Sourdough to Kalamata Green Olive, we have the best breads for sandwiches, dipping, toast, and appetizers.
Visit your Bakery at Bristol Farms this week and grab a few loaves of bread to celebrate Earth Day Read More

Cake pops started out as a way to use up the leftovers from making a cake. Taking crumbs or pieces of cake they are combined with buttercream and formed into a ball. Next they are put on a stick and dipped into a coating. Cake pop decorating ranges from simple with just a drizzle of color, to fancier shapes and figures that are very appealing for holidays and parties.
Cake Pops are popular amongst kids because they are cute and taste great. Since they are small bites they are great treats for the little ones. Adults are gravitating more and more toward cake pops for the variety of flavors and the beautiful presentation. Cake pops are a fantastic way to dress up a dessert table for parties. Their size helps adults feel less guilty for indulging in sweets without taking in all the calories.
At Bristol Farms, we make our cake pops from the traditional method of cake and buttercream. We have Classic Cake Pops which are simply drizzled with chocolate and we make Custom Cake Pops that are… Read More
Serve up a slice of the Emerald Isle this St. Patrick’s Day with Bristol's Own Irish Soda Bread! Irish Soda Bread was a traditional staple in Irish households, or farms to be correct. Since these homes were isolated and spread out, they had their own hearths for baking, and being a poor country, they ate bread with every meal. The hearth method of baking created a tender and dense bread with a hard crust and a slight twang in flavor.
The Irish Soda Bread of today has been enhanced to have a slightly sweet flavor and it has raisins in it. Warm it up, slap some traditional Irish Kerrygold butter on it and you have a meal!
At Bristol Farms we believe Irish Soda Bread to be an everyday item and you can find it in most of our locations. If you are like me though, sometimes if you see it every day you may not realize just how special it is. I can remember the first time I tried our Irish soda bread - I was a cashier at our Newport Beach store for a few years, but didn’t think this… Read More
The Croissant (Kraw-san), is the most beloved breakfast item we have received from the French. They are flaky on the outside and doughy on the inside with a buttery deliciousness that is hard to top. Croissants are made by layering dough and butter together, which is called laminating. This is what contributes to the unique texture that makes it utterly delicious. If you've never tried a croissant, trust us - it's tough to resist a buttery, flaky, flavorful croissant.
Our Bakery offers products made with only the best ingredients available, which also holds true for our croissants. We can't wait for you to try these perfect breakfast pastries - we promise that you will be just as excited as us.
We offer both large and mini croissants and (lucky for you) our multipack mini croissants are on sale through March 1, 2016. So if you’ve been tempted, but didn’t want to face the guilt, you can grab a multipack of mini croissants and find out what we are talking about!
Croissants make… Read More

Where’s the Big Game party this weekend? I’ll be bringing sliced baguettes and sourdough boules, which are both made in the Bakery at Bristol Farms. Also in hand will be our famous signature dips from our Deli. Which do you prefer - our Chili Con Queso or Spinach Dip? I absolutely love the Chili Con Queso. The dips pair perfectly with our sliced baguettes and sourdough boules. Grab and go and you've got the perfect pair for the crowd to munch on while watching the game.
I may even grab some Alpine Valley Hawaiian 12 pack rolls. I recently saw this super cool recipe on Pinterest for making sandwiches where you slice the whole 12-pack in half and smother the whole thing with cheese and ham then you bake it to melt! It looked so delish.
For dessert, I was thinking of grabbing some of our 6 pack Chocolate Chunk Cookies - they are everybody’s favorite. There are also those beautiful decorated cakes, and they usually have some cool themes going on. Bristol Farms seriously knows how… Read More
