Spring has sprung!
Spring is finally here and we couldn’t be more excited. With Spring comes so many good things: more daylight, baseball (Go Phillies!) and Easter. This year, Easter Sunday falls on April 21st. We have so many wonderful items in store to make your Easter outstanding! Who doesn’t love ham on Easter? Sam’s offers Alderfer Spiral Cut Hams ($3.99lb). These are ready to eat or you can add glaze and heat. Alderfer has been around for over 89 years. Their hams are naturally wood smoked and they contain no artificial or liquid smoke flavoring.
Note: All preorders for Easter must be placed by Monday, April 15th. Call us or pop in to order.
If you’re looking for an alternative to ham, we also have a beautiful leg of lamb. We offer these with both bone in ($7.99/lb) and boneless ($8.99/lb). (Note: these are uncooked so you will need to plan to cook them.)
A lovely addition to any Easter brunch is our 10” quiche, made fresh in store. We have nine types to choose from, ranging in price from $16.99 (for veggie) to $19.99 (seafood).
Available starting Palm Sunday weekend (Saturday, April 13th), we have so many great items to pick up.
