A Change of Seasons

It's hard to believe that September is here. Even though we say so long to all the delights of summer, fall brings its own sweetness with a bumper crop of apples, cool evenings, and brilliant autumn color. We are grateful for all our out-of-town customers who shop here during the summer and it will seem quieter with just us locals. Enjoy the change of seasons, take a walk or bike ride along the TART trail and stop in at Oryana for a hot latte or cool iced tea.

Shopping Cart Safety Reminder

We want to remind parents about the need for shopping cart vigilance. Please do not allow your child to stand inside the cart, to hang onto the outside of a cart as they could tip the cart over, or balance a child carrier on top of a cart. Use the safety belt and take advantage of the carts with built in baby carriers. We want our Oryana children to stay safe and healthy!

Recipe of the Week


Enjoy fresh local tomatoes, basil, and green beans dressed in a light honey vinaigrette.

Bean and Tomato Salad with Honey Vinaigrette

2 15-oz cans white beans, rinsed
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 cup chopped red onion
1/4 cup cider vinegar
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
freshly ground pepper to taste
8 oz green beans, trimmed, cut up
1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 cup fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced

Combine the white beans, salt, onion, vinegar, honey, oil, and pepper in a large bowl. Stir, cover and refrigerate to marinate for at least 1 hour or overnight. Cook green beans in a large pot of boiling water until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Drain, rinse with cold water, and drain again. Pat dry and add to the marinated beans. Stir in tomatoes and basil. Season with salt and pepper.

Did you ever stop to taste a carrot? Not just eat it, but taste it? You can’t taste the beauty and energy of the earth in a Twinkie.
