And the Good Food Award Winners Are…on the Shelf

We’ve been a member of the Good Food Foundation for years. The organization helps bring growers and makers together with independent retailers around the country. Ultimately, this is a big win for food lovers everywhere who gain access to tasty, unique, and responsibly sourced foods.

A few words from Amelia, who heads up our grocery department: “I love being a member of the Good Food Foundation’s Merchants Alliance. As one of about 20 independent food retailers around the country, we are dedicated to the discovery and promotion of incredible small businesses who share our passion for fantastic, authentic foods!”

Every year the Good Food Foundation receives over 2,000 product entries from all 50 states. There are 17 different categories, from coffee and beer to charcuterie and snacks.  Each product completes a blind tasting, followed by a rigorous vetting process to ensure they meet environmental and social responsibility standards.

This year’s awards ceremony was held virtually. But that doesn’t mean tastings weren’t involved! Amelia had the opportunity to taste many of the award winners, and she brought in some of her favorites to share with you. Look for the Good Food Awards display at the end of the cheese case in our Woodstock store.
