You may know, I taste near ’bout everything we carry here. So, when I tell you we have a phenomenal new product, I am speaking from experience. At the tasting table today: Vegan Pesto and Brazilian Pesto from Copper Crown. We have five flavor combinations and they change according to what’s in season. The creator of these amazingly good pestos is a chef at Copper Crown Fine Foods & Catering.
What’s wonderful about this product is that the chef has values in alignment with the values at Neighbors Market: supporting our local economy, clean food, all natural products. The pistachios are grown by Classic Foods out of California and the balance of the ingredients come from Oregon-Washington farmers. That pretty much satisfies the question about humane treatment of workers and animals by virtue of just knowing who the farmers are (Chef David sees most of them at weekly Farmers Markets) and definitely supports our local economy. Oh, and I don’t want to leave out what an extraordinary taste experience these pestos are.
