Fall is officially here and in full swing! We’re loving all the crisp days filled with sweaters, pumpkin everything, and we can’t wait for Halloween fun and Thanksgiving festivities. To help get you in the fall mood, here’s our favorite product picks for fall!
Jackie’s Java and Harbinger Coffee
Jackie’s Java and Harbinger Coffee are both fantastic local coffee companies, who roast their coffee right here in Fort Collins! For fall, we recommend the Heaven’s Blend from Jackie’s, which has a caramel aroma and mild aftertaste, and the Waykan blend from Harbinger, which has notes of milk chocolate and dark cherries.
Rebbl: Reishi Chocolate, Ashwagandha Chai, and Vanilla Spice Flavors
Rebbl makes tons of organic, all-natural, plant-based elixirs. Their drinks are creamy and indulgent, but they don’t use any gums or thickeners in their products! We carry multiple flavors of their elixirs, but for fall, we recommend Reishi Chocolate, Ashwagandha Spicy Chai, and Vanilla Spice Protein.
Purely Elizabeth Oatmeal
Purely Elizabeth is a fantastic, Colorado proud company who make delicious oatmeal, granola and other natural foods with superfoods like quinoa, chia seeds, ancient grains and coconut oil. They offer several varieties of convenient, heat-and-eat oatmeals, including flavors like Cranberry Pumpkin Seed and Apple Cinnamon Pecan– perfect for a warm, hearty, healthy fall breakfast on the go!
Birch Benders Pancake Mix
Birch Benders is a Colorado micro-pancakery, who make delicious, all-natural pancake and waffle-mixes. Each of their mixes is “just add water”, so you can have delicious, local pancakes in no time at all- perfect for a chilly fall morning! We carry their traditional and gluten-free mixes, so there are pancake options for everyone!
Chef Soraya Eat a Bowls
Chef Soraya is a Boulder brand that aims “to provide delicious, nutritious and healthy grab and go foods for people on the run”. Their Eat-a-Bowls are plant-based, portable, and packed with protein and tasty spices. Microwaveable meals get a bad rap, but with flavorful options like Chana Masala Chickpeas and Rice and New Mex Chile Lime Beans and Rice, you won’t be disappointed!
We’ve added the Reuben back to our menu just in time for the colder weather!
There are few sandwiches quite as satisfying as a Reuben- warm corned beef, tangy sauerkraut, hearty rye bread, creamy swiss cheese, and rich Russian dressing make this sandwich filling, warm, and oh so tasty.
Housemade Baked Goods
We make a variety of delicious baked goods in house every week. Our selection changes, but you can count on whatever we make to be fresh and tasty! We want everyone to be able to enjoy our products, so many of our baked goods are vegan and/or gluten free. Recently, we’ve had Pumpkin Peanut Butter Brownies, Vegan Banana Bread, and Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins- yum!
Bobo’s Oat Bars
Bobo’s began with oat bars in Boulder in 2003, and today they make all sorts of delicious, simple, wholesome snacks. All their products are still baked in Boulder, and certified gluten-free and non-GMO. We carry multiple varieties of Bobo’s Oat Bars and Bobo’s Oat Bites, but for fall, we recommend their Cranberry Orange and Almond Butter bars, or an Apple Pie Oat Bite!
Rocky Mountain Pecans
Rocky Mountain Pecans got their start right here in Fort Collins, Colorado! They roast fresh Georgia pecans slowly with high quality ingredients, like fresh Colorado honey. None of their flavors have any gluten, soy, or preservatives either! Try their original Campfire Roast for a savory, and slightly spicy treat, or try their Confectioner’s Delight for something sweet.
Charcut Nuvo Chicken Apple Sausage
ChacutNuvo is a Denver based company that uses 4 generations of European family heritage and sausage-making traditions to deliver high-quality, delicious meats to consumers. Their products have zero nitrates or preservatives, relying on natural ingredients instead, such as sea salt and celery powder. In addition to traditional products like Bratwurst, Charcut Nuvo also offers fun and quirky offerings, like Mac n’ Cheese Frankfurters. But one of our favorites, and our pick for fall, is their Chicken Apple Sausage- flavored with organic garlic and organic apples, it’s 100% pork free and 100% tasty.
Take Home Meals
On a particularly cold fall day, the last thing you want to do when you get home is cook dinner…. So let us take care of the cooking for you! Every week, we have a variety of gourmet, pre-prepared dinners for two available at the market or available for delivery through OrderUp. We use as many local ingredients as possible in the meals, and provide as many gluten-free and vegetarian/vegan options as possible. Recent selections have included a Vegan Pumpkin Curry, Bacon and Brussels Sprouts Risotto, Roasted Chicken, and a Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry- no matter what your style of cuisine, we have options for you! Also, we now have pre-ordering available: place an order online by Monday at noon, pick up your meals anytime after noon on Wednesday. By pre-ordering, you can make sure you get the meals you want (some of them go fast), and get great discounts on meals!
We hope you enjoyed reading about our fall favorites- let us know what you think if you try any! 🙂
