Staff Picks


Meyer Brothers Old Fashioned Mix

This mix makes the absolute BEST Old Fashioneds. It is thick and only requires 1 Tbs. per cocktail. This family used to run a supper club near Sheboygan and this is the mix that their Dad used for years. Pair it with Old Sugar Distillery’s Brandy Station and bring the flavor of that great Wisconsin supper club cocktail home! Available at North and West. 


Andalou 1000 Roses® Heavenly Night Cream

I love this moisturizer for nighttime. I wake up with my skin soft and smoother than when I went to bed. Plus it smells good. It’s a bit pricey, so I usually wait to buy it on Wellness Wednesday, but it’s definitely worth it!

Alden’s Organic Salted Caramel Ice Cream

So I saw on BuzzFeed that salted caramel is apparently a “food trend” that some people are “over.” They are wrong. Salted caramel is great, and this ice cream? AMAZING. Stop reading this and buy some right now. You can thank me later. (It’s also available as ice cream bars.)


Guayaki Yerba Mate Raspberry Terere

Guayaki is one of the best companies on the natural foods market. Not only are they committed to fair labor practices, but they also make a really great tea! Their Raspberry Terere in a glass bottle has helped get me through many early mornings. I have been drinking it for years, and it has never let me down. Available at North. 



Watermelon is a refreshing treat on a hot day or a great way to get some hydration after fun outdoor activities. I still get as excited as I did when I was a kid to bite into a slice! 

Bulk Trail Mix

Trail mix of any kind is a fantastic snack that we keep around our house to take for anything from hiking to long errand days. I love that we have so many different varieties available, so I switch it up often!!


Tandoor Chef Samosas

My kid and I love these! They taste almost like the ones you’d get at an Indian restaurant. 

Angelic Bakehouse 7-Grain Flatzza®

This makes a great thin-crust pizza. Just pile on your toppings as you normally would, bake for a few minutes, and you’ve got almost-healthy pizza! 

Just Coffee Maya Super Dark

Just Coffee’s Maya Super Dark makes the best, richest, darkest, smoothest cup of coffee on the planet. I drink it every single day and it is always satisfying and perfect.


Let’s Do…Organic® Organic Heavy Coconut Cream

This is the most amazing vegan and gluten-free whipping cream! It takes some prep time, as you will need to chill it overnight; but the peaks and flavor are worth it! Try this incredible new product over spring berries today!


RP’s Pasta Sweet Potato Ravioli 

When I need to eat fast, and I want it easy, and I want it to taste good, I reach for RP’s; it is a crowd-pleaser. 


NessAlla Kombucha in bulk

This female-owned, Madison-based company is amazing. Their product is such high quality, and their flavors never let me down. I love being able to reuse my growler and fill up on a new flavor or an old favorite. The Hibiscus Ginger Cardamom is my go-to flavor, but I tried the Salted Grapefruit Mandarin on a whim one day and was not disappointed at all. 


Bariani California Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Delicious, crisp, fresh. Love that this oil comes from California. Wouldn’t use any other in my cold dishes or served with herbs/cheese/tomatoes/etc. on bread. A must when my hot dishes need to be just perfect.


Alaffia Authentic African Black Soap

I’m ashamed to say that I ran out of my usual vinegar and orange cleaning solution just as I was about to mop my floors! I know, right. Please don’t tell my Mother. Anyway...what to do? WHAT TO DO?! So, I start looking around the house for possible substitutes. Laundry soap? Nope. Dishwashing liquid...NOPE. Desperate as a lily in the desert for rain, I decide to read the label on my bottle of Alaffia Black Soap. Plain as day, the last line under “uses” reads household cleaner. I took the bet and used it on my linoleum floors!

WOW!!! The shine, the fragrance, the non-film of it all!!! I highly recommend taking your Alaffia Black Soap out of the bathroom and into wherever you need to tidy up a bit. It works wonders. 


Badger Sleep Balm

Hush little baby, don’t say a word
And never mind that noise you heard
It’s just the beasts under your bed
In your closet, in your head
Exit: light
Enter: night
Take my hand
We’re off to never never land...

...This is the sweet little lullaby Badger Sleep Balm croons to me as I drift away to sleepy dreamland.... Seriously, THIS STUFF WORKS! I tend to sleep much better when I use this dreamy balm. It has a pleasant, light scent, it’s organic, you don’t need to use a lot, and bonus—the tin makes it great for traveling! Available at North and West. 


Cypress Grove Purple Haze

Being a fan of the Humboldt Fog from Cypress Grove, I just had to try the fresh cheeses when we started carrying them. I was curious if I would be able to taste the fennel pollen; I had never heard of this being used as a spice before. The subtle but distinct taste of fennel and lavender bring about a sense of summer. If you could eat a cloud that gathered the dew off a spring prairie, this would be it.

LüSa Organics Summer Lime Lip Balm

This lip balm soothes while protecting from further sun/wind damage. It feels smooth while not being overly oily, and the smell isn’t overpowering.


Derma E Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask

This product is awesome! It is super-easy and quick to use. It feels cooling and refreshing on your skin while it sucks out all the gross junk that gets buried in your pores. My face always feels so fresh and clean after using it! Available at East and West. 


The Earth Ball

This ball with the Earth printed on it really puts things into perspective. I like to look at the Earth Ball and think to myself, “hey this is where you live, but this is a ball.” It’s a good Earth Ball.


Grandpa’s Pine Tar Shampoo

When you want that campfire smell to last all year long.


Alaffia Beautiful Curls Reviving Tonic

This is a must for anyone with curly hair. It conditions, redefines curls and leaves your hair amazingly light & soft! Available at North and West. 



Full of all the good stuff! Nutrient-dense and flavorful, I call them Earth’s candy. :) A bit earthy, yet so sweet. They’re bright, colorful and so dang versatile. I love to juice my beets or top my pizza with them; or shred them, add pulverized walnuts, and you’ll have the best veggie beet burger of your life. <3 



So so good. Love ‘em and they are a great gateway fruit for kids.


Willy Street Co-op Apple Pesto Sandwich

This is my favorite sandwich right now. The combo of smoky Gouda, crispy sweet apple, bright pesto and spicy arugula—it’s the bomb. Available at West. 


Carr Valley Mobay


I discovered this cheese during our Cheese Challenge this year and it’s my new fave. It’s the local version of a renowned French cheese called “Morbier.” Doesn’t get any better than that!
