[Spotlight] Deep Roots Market Holiday Wine Event
By: Terry Rader
There’s a party going on Friday night at Deep Roots Market, and you’re all invited. Get in a festive spirit and sample wines from over 35 wineries along with a full spread of food from the deli while enjoying beautiful dulcimer holiday music from Larry Kirwan. At this year’s annual holiday wine event, there will be local vintage wines as well as co-op produced wines from as far away as Argentina. Deep Roots Market’s knowledgeable staff will be on hand to answer your questions and get you stocked up on reds, rosés and sparklings for your holiday parties and gifts.
“Most people don’t need more stuff,” said general manager Nicole Villano. “Consumable gifts are the way to go. Who doesn’t love a bottle of wine or a basket of locally made products as a gift? There’s no better way to show your love and add fuel to the local food engine.”
Expect case discounts and exclusive opportunities for bigger discounts when ordering during this event. While you are there, ask how Deep Roots Market can cater your holiday parties so you can relax and have fun. Their co-op chefs have been told they have the best hot bar in town with delicious, healthy dishes including tasty vegan options.
Deep Roots Market is a full-service grocery store, but what sets them apart is that the Triad community democratically runs them. While ownership brings many benefits and discounts, you don’t have to be an owner to shop there or to take advantage of the many co-op specials offered daily. Co-op shopping builds a stronger local economy by supporting local businesses that provide eggs, baked goods, cheeses, beauty products and so much more.
At the co-op, employees work together cooperatively, each wearing multiple hats. You can find me assisting with community outreach and offering tips for herbs and supplements in the wellness department. At the wellness department, you can learn about our favorite stress-reducing herbs and hangover cures to help you bounce back fast after holiday parties when partaking of too much alcohol and rich foods. Deep Roots’ locally-made Elderberry syrups can also help you stay well during the cold and flu season.
The holidays are coming, so plan ahead now and have more time to spend with your loved ones. After all, family, friends and the community are what make the holidays.
