Welcome to Our September Box

Welcome to Our September Box



We have carefully curated and hand selected each product, have met each farmer and maker to be sure their products are delicious and their business practices align with SacTown Bites' philosophy. We think of this as a 'food tour in a box' where you get to taste some of the best products from the Sacramento Valley delivered right to your door. We seek out products that are grown and made within the Sacramento Valley. Our partners are usually family owned businesses, some going back generations, and some brand new. We like meeting these farmers and makers and going behind the scenes to learn more about them and their products. Below you can find articles and videos about some of them. We ere not able to create videos on all our partners doe to various life events, such as the fires. Read on to find out more about what's in the box.
Let's begin!

Winters Fruit Tree – Winters, California

Phil Carter, Owner

Pistachios from Winters Fruit Tree

Sweet Sriracha Almond Butter Dip from Winters Fruit Tree

Winters Fruit Tree began in the long gone apricot orchards in the Santa Clara Valley as growers. Read about those special orchards and apricots in this blog post. The relocated to Winters in 1967 and opened the fruit stand in 1968. They used to be in the center of town, and you could get a hot dog or taffy along with your fruit and nuts back in the day. The fruit stand is still in Winters, but the town has grown and changed, and is a cute day trip destination from the Bay Area or Sacramento. Winters Fruit Tree grows and dries fruit and the grow several nuts, including the irresistible pistachios in the September box. And I am most excited about sharing their one of a kind, addicting Sweet Sriracha Almond Butter Dip. It's is sweet and a tiny bit zesty, and oh so good.

If you have ever been on my Farm to Table Midtown Food Tour in Sacramento, then you know that I am a hug fangirl of Ginger Elizabeth Chocolates. Ginger is a force of nature and passionate about sourcing all of her ingredients as locally as possible. With the exception of one of kind sea salt from the shores of Brittany - you can't get that in Sacramento it turns out. This caramel sauce is rich and buttery and perfection in a jar.
