Introducing Real Coco

We’re so excited to be carrying Real Coco, a product that’s 100% all-natural coconut water. Real Coco is naturally subtly sweet and deliciously refreshing. Even better, it’s a fat-free, potassium-packed health drink with 5 essential electrolytes to help you revitalize your body with natural hydration! All this with no added preservatives, Real Coco is the super drink for keeping you and your family vibrant and healthy.

Real Coco was the first product by Real Foods, a company with a mission to go back to what is REAL. They set out to find the best natural food on the planet and deliver it to you. They traveled the world, and experienced many inspiring food cultures in their search for the perfect “Real Foods” before they discovered Buco, Filipino coconut water. When they tasted this utterly delicious coconut water, they knew they finally found their first product. On a tiny island in the Philippines, Buco is grown year round and is always fresh.


Introducing belicious Whole Food Blends: At the Intersection of a Healthy, Mobile Lifestyle

Do you have a love/hate relationship with your blender?  Do you ever wish you could just grab your favorite concoction out of the fridge and take it with you, without the hassle of making it yourself?  Well, with belicious whole food blends, now you can!

Belicious founder and CEO, Heidi Huntsman, felt exactly that way.  Tired of constantly stocking fresh fruit and veggies, combined with the hassle of having to clean the blender “while it’s fresh”, she decided to do something about it!  For months she searched store shelves for a healthy, prepared, low sugar option, only to find concoctions that were full of sugar, with essentially none of the important macronutrients like protein and fiber that one gets in a home-blended smoothie.  As a stage 3-breast cancer survivor, a scientist, and a mother, she wasn’t about to let her standards for healthy food slide.  So, Heidi decided to create something that she could bring to the market to make it easy for everyone with similar healthy standards and beliefs…and thus, belicious was born!

Indulge Local: Clover Stornetta Farms


Holy Cow! 30 Years Together!

“When I was fortunate to lead a third generation at Clover, the first thing I did was assess our customers. I grew up hearing about my grandfather and father’s relationships with Mike Stone. The affection they had for each other was real. It was forged out of respect for how Mollie Stone’s flourished in the most competitive grocery environment. Breaking it down my grandfather (Clover’s founder) was plain spoken: ‘Mollie’s will always be around because they love their customers.'”
-Marcus Benedetti, Chairman/CEO Clover Stornetta Farms


Clover Stornetta Farms is a three generation, family-owned and operated dairy in northern California. They produce both organic and conventional dairy products that originate from the beautiful fields of California’s north coast. Continue reading

Local Greens, An Alternative Farm in Our Very Own Urban Backyard

Sunflower Microgreens

When you think of a farm, you probably imagine a green field that spans miles and miles somewhere along Highway I-5. Little did you know, there’s a thriving 2,000 square foot farm right in the heart of Berkeley. Last week we took a behind-the-scenes tour of Local Greens, a fully operational organic farm inside of a warehouse space. They currently produce over 2,000 pounds of microgreens each month! It’s quite impressive considering they only have 12 employees, most of them working only part-time. Founders Ron and Faye (a father-daughter team) gave us the scoop on how they make it happen:
