Enjoy Grilling Season with Love Bags in Tow

posted on May 23rd, 2016 by Kim Kaczor-Wardlow

Grilling season has officially kicked off! Glorious weather, delicious grill-ready entrees in our ad, and the upcoming Memorial Holiday are just a few reasons why you should jump on the grilling bandwagon, if you haven't already. Optimal BBQ weather means there's many occasions for gathering with friends and family, whether it's a backyard cookout, a beach bonfire, or a picnic in the park. Traveling with your goodies in tow doesn't have to be such a pain, especially with the grillin' themed reusable bags from LOVE Reusable Bags. Love Reusable bags are one of my favorite lines. I have many different styles, shapes, and sizes and love that they are 100% washable. I use my reusable bag every time I go shopping, I take my bags to the Hollywood Bowl and the farmers market, and now that the grillin' line is available in stores, I'll be sure to have these in tow during my next grilling adventure. The new patterns for summer are really exciting!! They are fun and bright in patterns evoking… Read More

Feliz Cinco de Mayo!

posted on May 4th, 2016 by Lauren Pepin

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

They asked. “Why should children have all the fun?” They then went on a quest to find the ultimate candy for grownups! Sugarfina's premium candies are made with only the finest ingredients sourced… Read More

Celebrating Mom!

posted on May 3rd, 2016 by Nicole Vuletich

Mother's Day is a holiday honoring motherhood and is celebrated throughout the world in many different fashions. The observance of this holiday can be traced all the way back to ancient Greeks and Romans who celebrated the mother goddesses, Rhea and Cybele. Mother's Day wasn't introduced to America until 1908 when it was created by Anna Jarvis, a social activist and unifying force within her community during the American Civil War. It wasn't until 1914 that Mother's Day become an official national holiday. With it's quick adoption and associated commercialism, Anna spent the latter part of her life trying to remove Mother's Day from the calendar. Today, in its popularity, many share this same sentiment and argue that Moms should be celebrated every day. While we agree, we also appreciate the yearly reminder to do something extra special for our amazing Moms out there. Mother's Day is commonly celebrated by presenting gifts of flowers, greeting cards, or candy. While these are… Read More

Break Bread for Earth Day

posted on April 20th, 2016 by Lauren Pepin

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.
