JUICE-DOWN-YOUR-CHIN FRUIT Oxbow Produce Frog Hollow
Twice a week staff from Oxbow Produce go to the Berkeley Farmers' Market to buy apricots, peaches, plums, pluots, nectarines and pears. As the season evolves so do the types of fruits available and each kind has different varieties that ripen throughout the growing season. The first of the peaches has arrived, Crimson Lady. Frog Hollow Farm is located in Brentwood, CA on the east side of Mt. Diablo and owned by the famous Farmer Al, who uses only organic methods and biodiversity in his treatment of crops and soil. Throughout the week at Oxbow Produce you'll also find other hand-selected stone fruit from Bera Ranch and Tenbrink Farms. Get ready for the summer fruit season, bake a pie, put up some jam or eat this "juice-down-your-chin" fruit as is.
Everything that you find in Cate & Co.'s bakeshop is created in their kitchen except for a couple of items that they discovered, fell in love with, and just had to share with their customers. They call these items "Cate's Fantastic Finds!" The most recent "find' is a line of nitrite-free salamis in a variety of distinctive flavors created by Bay Area producer Zoe's Meats. Ideal for picnics and snacking, these salamis also make a savory accompaniment to a cheese board along with a sliced Cate & Co. sourdough baguette. 
Summer is right around the corner and Napastak has delicious and unique food products that will inspire the home chef and impress the palate. You will find a wide variety of grilling sauces, delicious flavored balsamic vinegars for fresh garden vegetables and salads, and much, much more.

Always on the prowl for interesting wines, Oxbow Cheese & Wine Merchant (OC&WM) just received a few cases of this fine Mendocino red made from Aglianico, the grape variety responsible for Taurasi, and other long-lived red wines from Campania, Italy. Campania is the region through which Hwy A-16 slices east to west, and the food and wine of the region was the inspiration for A16 Restaurant in SF. There isn't much Aglianico grown in California, and Greg Graziano's Monte Volpe bottling is the best local version OC&WM has found. $28/bottle.
