It’s June – do you know what that means? It is National Dairy Month! We are celebrating all the creamy goodness of dairy this month, ranging from milk, cheese, ice cream, and everything in between! At Price Chopper and Market 32, we have a surplus of dairy products to offer, including our new PICS pint ice cream! Be sure to check them out at the end of this article.
National Dairy Month was originally just “National Milk Month” as a way to encourage people to drink more milk. However, this eventually became “National Dairy Month” by the National Dairy Council as a way to promote the benefits that dairy products provide to us. We have so many recipes on our website for all our dairy lovers! Let’s take a look at a few…

As National Dairy Month moooooves into its second week, we are celebrating all the sweet and savory ways yogurt can add benefit and bounty to your family meals. It is packed with protein, a good source of potassium, calcium, some B vitamins and more. Yogurt ranges in flavor and texture from delicate to decadent and everything in between – explore the many ways you can enjoy fresh, creamy yogurt!
Like milk, yogurt is a wonderfully versatile ingredient. Tangy, sweet, rich, full fat, low fat – there are a lot of ways to eat it on its own or as part of a recipe. Yogurt can complement and connect a diverse number of ingredients – spices and herbs, produce and proteins, whatever is in season can be married with yogurt. Plain Greek yogurt can substitute for mayonnaise or sour cream in recipes. Like easy and simple? Yogurt is your go-to for quick combos like parfaits with berries and granola, a whole food favorite of kids and adults. Love to entertain? Make it savory and wow your guests and family with recipes for appetizers, soups, entrees and desserts.
As we all embrace more local foods, it is great to know that for Price Chopper/Market 32 shoppers, yogurt is one of them. Dairy farming is part of the fabric of our communities. There are hundreds of dairy farms in the Northeast – over 90% of them are farmed by families that have been caring for their land and cows for generations. Dairy farmers have been navigating the same issues that have impacted us all over the last few months, and are working hard to ensure their delicious and nutritious products are available to near and far. Enjoying the yogurt and dairy items we carry in stores benefits local farms, local economies, your family and theirs – check out some of these amazing recipes, which highlight fresh items in the store right now – PICS Yogurt, sweet corn and sweet cherries! You will make delicious memories for your family and friends when you try one of these!
