Celebrate Shopping Local with Northeast Made Products!

At Price Chopper & Market 32, we pride ourselves on providing our customers with fresh, close to home ingredients. To ensure that when you’re shopping our aisles, you’re choosing from the highest quality selection of locally made products. It’s what’s best for you and your family!

Milk: Our PICS milk is bottled in New York with the help of over 500 Northeast dairy farmers: When you take home a jug of our milk, you’re taking home the product of hard-working local farmers (and cows) from our region. Located in Hudson Falls, NY, Ideal Dairy Farms is a great local dairy farm. These folks are just a few miles down the road from our Fort Edward store. Ideal Dairy first began selling milk to local residents around 1908. These days they produce over 16,000 gallons of milk per day! Despite operating for over 100 years, the vision of Ideal Dairy has remained unchanged: they’re committed to the production of quality milk for their community.

Granola: Every batch of PICS granola is hand made in Schenectady, New York. Made with the finest ingredients using artisanal baking techniques, this granola will soon be your go-to granola. Snack on it plain, add milk, top your ice cream with it – no matter how you use it, you will enjoy every bite!

Maple Syrup: We live in one of the only regions in the world with the ideal climate for maple agriculture, and we’re proud to partner with a wide variety of local maple farmers and producers here in the Northeast, who are currently preparing for this year’s maple sugaring season.

These are just a few of the wide variety of local products available in our stores. You can find many more homegrown PICS items on our shelves. Featured in our ad this week are PICS cottage cheese and eggs, two of our go-to locally made items.

Holiday Cookies How-To

One of our favorite parts of the holiday season are the tradition and coziness of holiday cookies! Whether you’re enjoying dessert with family and friends or leaving a tasty treat for Santa, cookies play an important role in holiday celebrations. They’ve become a staple of the season!

Did you know that the tradition of leaving cookies out for Santa began during the Great Depression? It was a lesson in giving and doubled as a sign of appreciation from young children for the gifts they received, even in economic hardship. This tradition continues today as children thank Santa for his hard work during the holidays. And cookies continue to be a vital part of celebrating.

At Price Chopper & Market 32, our PICS line offers a delicious variety of cookies. From your favorites like Chocolate Chip, to hidden gems like Dutch Cocoa there is something for everyone. Plus, there is no better combination than cookies and milk, and our lineup of PICS milk makes for the perfect sidekick.
