Happy Independence Day Order Reminder!


How about that rain last night? According to our pal Jim Buckley’s Weather Underground station, we had .41” of rain by 9 pm last night. We sure needed it. And man! Did it feel good.

Happy Birthday USA!

We hope everyone has a spectacular day celebrating the founding of our country. Made-in-USA is a major value of the Mercantile. From our hats made by the Ackerman family in New York to the t-shirts we buy from the Oldham family who grow organic cotton in Texas, we search for products from small makers who walk the talk about American-Made.

Danzeisen is one of those family businesses we work with. They create the very best milk from cows raised and nurtured at their dairy in Laveen, Arizona. It truly is the good stuff. Just ask little Grant. He totally approved of the banana milk popsicles his grandma Des made for him.

If you need goods for this week, get your orders in by Monday, July 5th at 9 pm!

Chocolate Restock with new Varieties!

We are restocked on a variety of Theo chocolates—the first organic, fair trade certified chocolate maker in North America—including some new flavors like Cinnamon Horchata Milk Chocolate, plain Organic Milk Chocolate,55% Grapefruit Ginger, and the intriguing 70% Bread and Chocolate for those who love a sweet & salty combo.

It starts with organic sourdough bread from Essential Baking in Seattle, that our chocolatiers slice, butter and salt by hand before toasting into delightfully crunchy breadcrumbs.”


For people like me who like SUPER dark 85% chocolate, the Quinoa Crunch is back in stock plus we added their all-new Vanilla Cocoa Nib.

A quick guide to chocolate percentage: 

  • Do you like your chocolate sweet and milky? Go for milk chocolate. 
  • Like dark but still sweet? 55% is for you.
  • Looking for a hint of bitter edge to your dark chocolate? Do 70%. 
  • Want minimal sugar and maximum true chocolate bitterness? 85% is where you need to be!


That’s it for today!

We plan to enjoy the 4th with friends, eat some Beeler’s hotdogs, watch the parade, marvel at the fireworks (thank you Simmons family!!), and appreciate this fantastic community we now call home. See you later this week!
