Whenever I think of peach season, I reminisce about a farm we used to visit up in Acton to pick fresh, sweet peaches. Naturally, we would go home with our peaches and have a pie baking celebration. I just love making peach pies this time of year. If you've ever made a pie, you know that having the right tools can mean great success or saddened failure for your pie. Luckily, for my fellow peach pie-loving customers, I brought in a whole slew of fantastic pie-making tools from Harold Imports to make pie baking a breeze! These gadgets make the entire process of prepping, baking, serving, and maintaining freshness so much easier and more efficient. Here are a few of our best-loved products for the craft that is pie-making:
Pastry Blender - Mrs. Anderson's Bakery Pastry Blenders are made of stainless steel, are strong and durable for even heavy dough, and can quickly and easily incorporate butter into your dry ingredients. It's the right tool to begin your pie-making process.

Oh, Dad. He's a funny one. Often submerged in a project in the garage or getting his zen on over the grill or sometimes, over the lawn mower - he does a lot to keep things running smoothly around the house. He's also always there when you need him for advice on your car troubles, your BBQ questions, and of course, your all-things wisdom related.
He deserves it all this Father's Day. So treat him well. Treat him with extra love...and with some gifts he will actually use. Because most dads appreciate practicality. And if he's a dad that also appreciates beer, whisky, and/or grilling, then he's going to love our top picks for Father's Day gifts...

Holiday stress is a very real thing. Never mind wrapping presents right now - many of us are wrapping up all the loose ends at work and are making sure the kids have things to do on break so we can find the time to go on the many errands that Christmas demands. From multiple grocery trips to ensure everything has been bought for the party and/or Christmas brunch or dinner to more mall trips than we'd like to admit, the hustle and bustle is being felt by all.
And every year, without fail, there's always at least 1-2 people we need to find a last-minute gift for. Not to worry; we have something for everyone at our stores between our quite extensive housewares department and of course, our lovely wine and spirits section too. Here's your guide to last-minute gift shopping at Bristol Farms.

There’s a good chance you’ve seen a shiny and colorful candy “shop” in at least one of our stores. If you’re familiar with Sugarfina, then you mostly likely stopped short and took a few minutes to peruse the beautiful boutique candy selection.
Sugarfina has become somewhat of a household name these days to candy lovers in Southern California. But aside from the dozen Sugarfina stores, we are one of the very few vendors of the gorgeous gummies and chocolates, which are often filled or infused with champagne, tequila, rum, or dessert liqueurs.
Sugarfina began in 2012 as an online store for high-end adult candy. Then, in 2013, they opened their very first retail store in Beverly Hills, and have since grown to a dozen locations, six of which are in California. The idea for the Sugarfina concept came on the founder’s third date during a screening of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. They asked. “Why should children have all the fun?” They then went on a quest to… Read More
