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

Since it's inception, Chili has evolved into many different recipes, and every passionate chili-lover on the planet can make an argument about the best chili recipe. We've seen everything from chili con carne (chili with meat), to a meatless version, a beanless version, and even pure vegetable chili. Whatever the concoction may be, all chilis can be described as a spicy hearty stew and is one of America's best-loved comfort foods for winter.
Bristol Farms is home to a variety of delicious, fresh, hand-cooked chilis. Just like our soups, we cook off small batches of chili daily. You can find our fresh chili in the refrigerated soup section of our Deli department in 15 oz. and 30 oz. containers, as well as one variety of chili served hot from our soup bar. Each month our soup menu changes to reflect seasonal offerings, and you can find the following varieties for the month of January: Snake Bite Chili and Route 66 Chili.
We also have a great offer for a FREE 30 oz. container of chili… Read More

Nothing symbolizes the winter holidays quite like gingerbread. With a rich history dating back to the 15th century, this traditional European bread was originally made in a cake form cut into shapes. Ginger was found to be a natural preservative when baked and was made in part for its digestive properties.
Gingerbread has come to be associated with winter holidays, but it was originally used for other holidays and festivals. In the spring, Easter was celebrated with gingerbread cut into buttons and flowers, and in autumn it was cut into leaves and trees. One source says that in Germany unmarried women were to eat the gingerbread men in hopes of finding a husband! At one point gingerbread-making was recognized as a profession with the bakers having exclusive right to make it, except at Christmas.
When the Grimm brothers collected their tales and found Hansel and Gretel, gingerbread was modernized and romanticized forever. The lovely little decorated cookies and elaborate houses… Read More
Buche De Noel, also known as a Yule Log, is the French version of this traditional dessert served at Christmastime. History tells us that a Yule Log was burned on Christmas Eve as a way of warding off evil and preparing for the next season. While we can appreciate history and traditions, we are especially delighted when they evolve to include eating as part of the celebration.
This year we are proud to offer the most delicious Buche De Noel that you have ever tasted! Our Buche De Noel is made with dark chocolate sponge cake, dark chocolate mousse, crème brulee, and a crunchy hazelnut fuelletine insert, then covered in dark chocolate glaze. This traditional dessert tastes amazing and will look great in your holiday spread! You will be completely smitten with our new twist on this classic dessert, just as we are.
Bristol Farms is now taking pre-orders for the Buche De Noel, which will be available starting December 10th. Our all natural Buche De Noel is 9 ¼” long and will serve… Read More
Our Bakery is changing for the better. We are dedicated to bringing you the best tasting, and freshest products that we can. You may have noticed our new Artisan Bread line, if you haven’t tried it yet you have to stop by the Bakery and grab a loaf. We wanted to offer a bread line made with natural ingredients in a smaller size with a value price, and we have delivered on this.
What is natural? We believe natural means no artificial flavors, preservatives, or colors. Our breads are made from the simplest ingredients around: flour, water, and salt with some honey or flax seed thrown in for flavor. Nine of the twelve new breads contain spelt flour, and two contain Khorasan flour.
Our breads are full of flavor and aroma and are also gentler to our bodies because they are easier to digest.
Smaller Sizes and Value Pricing
Fresh bread is always better than day old bread. Our breads are 6-14 oz. which means you can eat it all before it gets stale and buy another loaf… Read More
