Introducing… The Basic Needs Basket!

It's official: we've rolled out the red carpet for our Basic Needs Basket! We've highlighted a selection of staple food items and body care products that are kept at a low price every day. It's our way of making healthy, organic options within reach of everyone. 

Wanna help spread the good word? We'll be distributing circulars to our neighbors this Saturday, 4/19.

Expansion Update

Telling Our Story
>> Sharon Hoyer, General Manager.

Later this week, Board Director Gajus Miknaitis and I will visit Lombard to tell the Dill Pickle story to the energetic, fast-growing group organizing Prairie Food Co-op. The staff and board of the Dill Pickle are called on to tell our story quite a lot: to prospective owners in the store every day, to emerging co-ops in other parts of the city and suburbs, to schools and community groups (e.g. the outreach committee's recent visit to Ames school's Elev8 program), to leaders in the community helping us with expansion, and now to a whole new audience: institutional lenders.

The Produce Corner is a collaborative column by farmer and Dill Pickle owner Rob Montalbano and Dill Pickle's Produce Lead Buyer, Kristen Martinek. Here Rob shares info on some of his favorite in-season veggies including history, cooking ideas and storage tips. Rob lives and works with his wife Christina on their farm in Sandwich, IL.  Kristen provides additional information including nutritional value and recipes. In addition to working as Produce Lead at the Dill Pickle, Kristen shares her passion for nutrition and natural living on her website “Enjoy This Organic Life”.
