Charity of the Month – Girls Rising

This nonprofit organization was created by the Sea Cliff-based all-female rock band, Antigone Rising, to empower and inspire girls and LGBTQ kids to pursue careers in STEAM fields.

Girls Rising uplifts kids and builds self-esteem by sharing personal stories at outreach workshops and live performances. Included at their workshops are inspirational special guests from other STEAM fields to create a panel of diversity. Girls Rising awards grants and scholarships to students in underserved school districts, and provides kids with opportunities through their Girls Rising Music Festival.
We agree with Girls Rising: girls and LGBTQ youth need to see strong role models they can emulate and identify with in positions of leadership. Girls Rising’s outreach workshops aim to do just that by bringing successful women and queer people of all ethnic backgrounds to their attention.

Smoothie of the Month
Spark your sunny day with our naturally sweet, rich and filling Summer Date Smoothie. We suggest adding a vanilla protein powder to make it the perfect meal on the go!

Watermelon Water
Did you know that a watermelon is actually classified as a fruit AND a vegetable? How cool is that!? Come by the store and try our refreshing, electrolyte-packed Watermelon Water! Not only is it so delicious, but Watermelon juice is also believed to relieve muscle tension and is rich in many vitamins.


Father’s Day

We have plenty of gift options for Dad! Take a look at some of our recommendations in our Father’s Day Gift Guide.  And for a Dad-approved BBQ, check out our variety of grilling meats and plant-based options, including our 100% organic produce department.


Health and Beauty

The sun is getting stronger and the days are getting longer!
Check out our array of safe, natural and effective sunscreens.
Whether you’re looking for natural and safe protection for babies and kids, or more water-resistant sunscreens for surfing & other sports, many of our mineral sunscreens provide safe broad-spectrum protection with zinc oxide.
A few of our favorite brands? Badger, MyChelle, and All Good sunscreen.

As with all of our products, we are diligent about reviewing the ingredients in our Health and Beauty items. Recent reports have shown that many popular brands do include this potential carcinogenic in their sun protection products. We encourage you to read more about this by viewing this article. Stay sunny and safe!

Buzz off!
Warmer weather means the bugs are out and about! Protect yourself with Quantum Buzz Away – The leading DEET free bug spray that’s both plant-based and effective!

  • DEET free
  • Proven effective
  • Family Friendly
  • Plant-based protection



We take great pride in our 100% Certified Organic produce department—the only one in the area. We favor small, local growers wherever possible, and are continually building these relationships in order to expand our offerings to our customers (and support local farmers!). We define local as any farm or food purveyor within 300 miles of the store. But we also offer hyper local fruits and vegetables from Long Island when available.

Here’s a look at what’s in season now:

  • Peaches, White Peaches
  • Nectarines
  • Black Plums
  • Pluots
  • Cherries
  • Melons
  • Cantaloupe
  • Watermelon
  • Blueberries



Avocado Kefir Dip

Originally calling for buttermilk, this tangy dressing substitutes Redwood Hill Farm’s plain kefir in this ranch dressing recipe. Nutrient-dense avocados lend a velvety texture and vibrant hue to the dressing. It can be used as a dip for raw vegetables, tortilla chips, or over salad greens!

Homemade Ricotta Cheese

It’s June Dairy Month and what better way to celebrate than with homemade cheese? Making your own cheese might seem intimidating, but this recipe for homemade ricotta cheese couldn’t be easier. There are seldom ingredients as versatile as ricotta with the ability to lean sweet or savory. In less than an hour, you’ll have the perfect base for lasagna, ricotta lemon pancakes, or even a cheesecake! With only a few ingredients, the quality of each will shine through. This spreadable cheese is equally at home dolloped on a grilled bread for bruschetta or folded into a crepe. Add it to your next charcuterie board and impress everyone with your homemade cheese!

BBQ Chicken

With BBQ chicken, there is no need to complicate things. We suggest chicken legs for this recipe, which will feature drumsticks and thighs for a juicy, flavorful dish. Basting the chicken near the end of cooking time ensures great flavor without burning the sugars in the sauce. Use your favorite prepared barbecue sauce to make this a weeknight friendly meal. There’s no need to wait until the weekend to fire up the grill. And with this simple summer staple, you’ll surely be the grill master!

Easy Summer Trifle

Make the most of strawberry season with this Easy Summer Trifle! By layering ripe berries (or your favorite summer fruit), poundcake, and lightly sweetened whipped cream, you create a stunning dessert centerpiece that can be made ahead of time. To make this recipe dairy-free, choose a vegan poundcake and make the whipped cream with coconut cream. Whichever whipped cream you make, be sure the ingredients are well-chilled before whipping! Garnish with mint and powdered sugar for an elegant summertime treat.

Natural Dyed Eggs 

Jump into spring with a seasonal project that’s great for the whole family! Marvel over the way boiled red cabbage turns an egg blue and yellow onion skins make a vibrant orange. It’s science and creativity all in one! The longer the eggs sit in their solutions, the more pronounced their color becomes. Try drawing on the eggs with crayons to create dye-free spots or dipping only half the egg. Who can make the funkiest egg of the dozen? 

Potato and Chard Quiche

Ah, quiche! The perfect mix of breakfast and lunch with a savory egg filling and veggie mix-ins. This recipe is a great bridge to spring with early season leeks and chard, but the potatoes will keep you satisfied and full. Make this ahead of time to enjoy hearty breakfasts all week long or serve with a side salad for a quick lunch. No matter the time of day, this quiche will satisfy. Try substituting your favorite cooking green or adding different herbs to keep things fresh  

Gochujang Glazed Tofu Bowl 

This dish features all the hits: it comes together fast, features a knockout glaze, and packs a variety of nutrients in one bowl! The key component here is the gochujang (red chili paste) glazed tofu baked to perfection, along with fresh veggies, like radishes and cukes to add a fresh crunch. Lime, cilantro and peanuts finish it all off with a bright zip you’ll love! If you’ve grown bored of rice, why not try it over rice noodles or your favorite grain? It’s also great with tempeh, instead of tofu. Customize it to suit your tastes, but rest assured if you’re using this recipe as a base, it will be a winner.

This recipe features a bit of stout beer, if you have it, to really up the Irish ante.

Charity of the Month – Bayville Village Church Food Pantry 

The Mimi Mernin Food Pantry (aka the Bayville Village Church food pantry) was started as a small outreach service almost 20 years ago and operated out of a small shed at the rear of the church.  Until recently, they solely relied on private donations.  With the onset of the coronavirus, the Food Pantry expanded their services and moved to a conference room in the Village Church. They are currently open Saturdays, from 9am -12pm for drive up/no contact distribution. Presently, they are serving about 50 families/200 individuals per distribution date, offering dry goods, produce, meats, dairy items and more. 


2020 Donations 

We can all agree 2020 threw us a few curveballs – which is why it’s even more AMAZING that our customers have truly stepped up to help those in need. Through our Charity of the Month program, we were able to raise over $10,000 for a number of different local organizations.  Community engagement has always been a huge part of this store – it’s important that we recognize the tremendous individuals that make these nonprofits tick, and really see how their work is impacting the neediest in our community.

American Heart Month

February is American Heart Month, bringing attention to how we can motivate ourselves and each other to adopt healthy lifestyles that may help prevent heart disease. This year, heart health is extremely important, as people with poor cardiovascular health may also be at increased risk of illness from COVID-19. 

Heart disease is the number one cause of deaths for most groups, affecting all ages, genders, and ethnicities. Luckily, there are some simple behavior changes that may prevent heart disease, including not smoking, maintaining a healthy weight, controlling blood sugar and cholesterol, managing high blood pressure, increasing physical activity and getting regular checkups. 

Get those red clothes ready! February 5th is National Wear Red Day, when people across the country are encouraged to wear red to raise awareness about cardiovascular disease.

This recipe is truly a feast for the senses with creamy avocado, crunchy onions and walnuts and juicy citrus. Soak in the detoxifying powers of not only the fruit but also the apple cider vinegar in the dressing and enjoy this refreshing winter salad.


Miso Soup with Silken Tofu Although it comes together simply, you’ll be wowed with the complex depth of flavor created in this soup! Kombu is a sea kelp native to Japan. It adds umami and rich nutrients to this dish. Garnish this brothy goodness with green onions, sesame seeds, and red pepper flakes for even more punch. This recipe would make an easy and delicious lunch or pair well with a more substantial dinner; whatever you’re in the mood for!


Berbere Chickpeas with Chicken Who doesn’t love a good, hearty meal this time of year? Your kitchen will smell amazing as you simmer chicken thighs until they’re falling off the bone. Utilizing Berbere, a spice often used in Ethiopia and Eritrea, this recipe boasts a lovely deep red color and bold flavor to wow the whole family. To make this recipe vegan, replace the chicken with extra firm tofu, and reduce the simmering time to 20 minutes. Serve with rice or your favorite grain to complete this delicious, aromatic meal.

We are particularly fond of Aura Cacia, who values nourishing people and planet. They care for the small grower communities at the source of their products, openly share product information, show customers how to improve their lives with aromatherapy and give back to help those in need. Check out this guide to properly chose the right essential oil for your needs.
