Trendy Foods We’re Loving Right Now

Posted in Blog, Events, In the News, News

NPEW_3_2017

Each year, more than 70,000 foodies gather for a weekend of eating, exploring and more eating at the Natural Products Expo. The event showcases the best of all-natural products for good-food aficionados (us) to taste test, bring back and stock our shelves.

NPEW_1_2017

This year, four trends stood out among the feeding frenzy.

Korean Cuisine
Whether for frozen meals or grab n’ go, Korean entrees are in right now. We love the spicy and savory flavors and welcome kimchi into our lives with open arms.

Paleo and Plant-Based Protein
You may have heard of Paleo – the “caveman” diet popularized by athletes. According to this year’s Natural Products Expo, Paleo isn’t just for exercise enthusiasts. It seems that high-protein meals and plant-based protein sources are more prevalent than ever.

Bone Broth
Chicken, beef, fish – anything with bones can be made into high-nutrient bone broth. Full of vitamins and collagen, bone broth is quickly joining the list of delicious superfoods.

Gluten-Free Everything
No surprise here – gluten-free products remain all the rage. Fortunately for all of us, they get tastier every year. At Barons, you can find all of our gluten-free products located in one section of the store for quick, relaxed shopping.

NPEW_2_2017

We expect to see these items popping up in a variety of places, but we’ll bring only the best selection and the best prices to your local Barons Market. Think of us as your grocery Sherpa – we’re here to guide you through the joyful experience of trying new foods. Cheers to a year of adventurous eating.

Shop at Barons to Help End Hunger in San Diego

Posted in Blog, Community, Events, Family, In the News, News, Uncategorized

Alpine_CashierWhen we learned that one in five children in San Diego County doesn’t always have enough food to eat, we felt unsettled. Our hearts trembled. We had to help.

Come to our Point Loma location this Labor Day weekend and you may notice that the store looks a little different. More than fifty paper plates, hand-illustrated by children and families struggling with hunger in San Diego County, will be on display to kick off September’s Hunger Action Month. The colorful in-store art installation tells the stories of local families who don’t have enough to eat.

You can help fill their plates and brighten their futures. From Tuesday, August 30 through Tuesday, September 6, we invite you to donate to San Diego Hunger Coalition when you check out at any of our San Diego locations. Any amount will support the organization’s work to ensure that nobody in San Diego goes to bed hungry.

Good food can change a life. Good neighbors can too. Please stop in and join us.
