1Fresh Cut Produce

No time to slice up fresh fruit? Let us do the hard part, so you can enjoy the celebration! We offer a wide range of prepped-in-store produce, including table-ready Luau Bowls and Tropical Fruit Tubs. Jumbo Red Cherries are another seasonal favorite that’s ready to eat!

Deli Sides

2Deli Sides

Add our delicious new sides, including Broccoli Mango Salad and Blue Cheese Potato Salad and Pepper Vinegar Slaw to your table this cookout season. We also have Smokey Mozzarella Pasta Salad, Baked Potato Salad loaded with cheese, sour cream and bacon, plus Smokehouse Baked Beans and refreshing, colorful Broccoli Cranberry Slaw with Almonds.

Patriotic Brownies

3Patriotic Desserts

Cue the fireworks—our Fourth of July desserts are as festive (and delicious) as it gets. Impress your guests with our Patriotic Tart, made with an all-butter shortbread crust and topped with a layer of light pastry cream, and then loaded with fresh red and blue berries from our produce department. We also have Patriotic Cupcakes, Brownie Bites and Red, White and Blue Cookies decorated with red, white and blue sprinkles.

All That’s Fresh for the Fourth

Fresh summer produce can add mouthwatering flavors and bold colors to your celebrations, from fresh red cherries and berries to fresh-cut watermelon. We also offer tasty entrée ideas (Red, White and Bleu Cheese Burgers, anyone?), plus bright blooms for the perfect finishing touch.

Red, White and Bleu Slaw

1Go for Red, White and Bleu

Elevate your burger or hotdog with our new recipe for Red, White and Bleu Slaw. Crunchy red cabbage mingles with homemade bleu cheese dressing for a crunchy, creamy topper you’ll want to slather on just about anything that’s hot off the grill.


2Layer the Flavor

For a festive, crowd-pleasing dessert that’s a breeze to assemble, try our Berry American Trifle, which features layers of our moist, baked-in-store vanilla pound cake, fresh strawberries and blueberries and a creamy whipped Greek yogurt topping. It tastes as good as it looks!

Sparkling Elderflower Spritzer

3Set off Sparks

Make any beverage more patriotic with sweet, ripe blueberries and star-shaped chilled watermelon. We recommend Sparkling Elderflower Spritzer. Simply slice our seedless watermelon cross-wise into 1-inch thick rounds and use a star cookie cutter to make your patriotic pieces. Chill the pieces until ready to serve, and they’ll help keep your drinks cool while also adding a hint of sweetness. You can also create fresh stirrers by stacking blueberries on a skewer and topping them off with a watermelon star.

Think Deliciously

Have you ever tried halloumi? This grill-friendly cheese pairs beautifully with sweet watermelon. We also have tasty recipes for Grilled Vidalia Onions and a festive Cherry Cobbler.
