Travel writer and photographer Nancy Brown shot the photo at Oxbow Produce & Grocery (soon to be Hudson Greens & Goods) and it was selected as part of the iPhone World Gallery!

various Apple channels, including outdoor billboards, print publications, Apple.com and the App Store. Congratulations, Nancy!

Remember the lunch box staple PB & J? It's still around and better than ever with the variety of nut butters and artisanal jams that are available today. The bread that encases all of that nutty, fruity goodness is an essential part of the PB & J. Cate & Co. bakes loaves in four unique flavors that will add yet another enticing component. Pre-sliced and ready to go, choose from sourdough, Pain de Mie (soft white), pumpernickel and grain-free. As an added bonus, the breads freeze beautifully too.

COLD BREW COFFEERitual cold brew
Ritual Coffee Roasters has unveiled a new nitrogen infused, kegge cold brew coffee service, made with Hacienda Carmona single origin coffee from Guatemala. Whereas the process of cooling hot brewed coffee to make iced coffee can change both flavor characteristics and dilute the coffee-to-water ratio, this special proprietary method ensures a velvety smooth extraction that responds well to nitrogen infusion and pressurized on-draft service. One of the friendly expert baristas will be glad to give you a taste, then serve you a glass of either the house-made cold brew (fresh and on tap), or 9 oz of the special Nitro brew, beautifully presented in unique glassware. Or better yet, stop by Three Twins Ice Cream first, get a scoop or two of your favorite ice cream, and Ritual will make you a Nitro cold brew float!

Guacamole and chips or nachos are tasty snacks full of nutritious ingredients.
