If our produce folk deliver a flat of juicy fruit then something sweet will be added to the menu without warning! To see spur of the moment specials check our Facebook feed on our homepage every day.

Truly a party in a pan, we make paella fresh every Friday afternoon so that you can start your weekend off in the most festive way possible. Stop by and pick some up on your way home! We sell our paella by the pound and it can be packaged into a To Go box for you. Simply reheat it when you are ready to serve it. We specialize in traditional Spanish paella which is typically made with poultry, dry Spanish chorizo, sustainable shrimp, chicken, bomba rice, smoked piquillo peppers, wine, and seasonal vegetables. Our 15? pan of paella contains only 3 cups of rice so it is a very rich and abundant dish. Our paella costs $16.99 a pound.
Need a Pan for a Party?
Call us on Wednesday to arrange to take an entire pan of paella home (or to the beach!) on Friday. It is offered in 15" pans which will feed between 8 to 10 people generously. We charge for the weight of the paella in the pan. This will vary from pan to pan since each is individually crafted. Generally a pan of paella weighs between 8 and 10 pounds. The weight of the pan itself if deducted from the total. Pan Deposit: If you arrange to take your paella home in a pan, we ask for a deposit equal to the pan's retail price. If you bring the pan back we will refund your deposit. Or, you may keep the pan so that you can make paella at home.
What do I serve with paella?
Starters might include Spanish cheeses, marinated olives. And don't forget the Marcona almonds! Look in our Fresh Pack department for ideas and supplies. Consider serving a crisp green salad with the paella. And, of course, some sangria or Spanish wine. Ask us for wine recommendations. We carry lots of reasonably priced, ready to drink wine that pairs perfectly with paella.
We offer an array of fresh, wholesome and delicious dishes. In addition to sandwiches and salads, a number of main dishes are available for lunch and dinner.
