Wedge Basics

All of us here at the Wedge feel fortunate to be a part of such an outstanding community. Our staff has vast knowledge
about our store, the products we carry and the people who created them. Our owners are the reason we exist and they are
vital to building our local food system. Together, we have an abundance of Wedge wisdom. So we’ve created and curated
this guide to tell the story of how the Wedge can fit your life and your budget.

The Shopping Guide to the Wedge is filled with staff and owner advice and tips to make your dollars go further,
department by department. Assembled through owner advice, staff wisdom and research, we’re excited for you to dig in

Shopper Advice

“I also buy produce based on what’s on sale to save money. And if you aren’t sure how to use
something or what to serve with it, just ask! The folks who work at the Wedge and friendly and full
of great ideas!”

“And lastly Iook up favorite brands on Facebook or find their website-often you can find
coupons or get on their mailing list and they will send you some.”

Fresh Herbs

Treat herbs like cilantro, parsley, chives, mint, dill, and tarragon like a bouquet of
flowers. Snip the bases of the stems and put them upright in a glass of water, changing it
every day.
