Our spring cookbooks

We love spring cooking, with some of our favorite seasonal fruits and vegetables returning to the market shelves. This selection of books celebrates inclusion and diversity, as well as spectacular spring produce. It’s no accident that our cookbooks mingle with produce in the market — we like to keep the focus on vegetables in our dishes, and our favorite books reflect that. Come by this month to check out the new titles and pick up your ingredients!

Wellness in 2023

Our bodies use minerals for many functions, including bone, heart, and brain health. Minerals are also key to hydration as well as enzyme and hormone production. While theoretically we get most of the minerals we need by eating a wide variety of foods, in some cases a healthcare provider may suggest a mineral supplement. Learn how you can achieve your wellness goals with a look at products in our supplement department.

Deli Manager – Marissa Cruz

Marissa Cruz has been with us since 2016, and is an important part of the Driver’s family. She was working as a business banker at Wells Fargo when she got to know Paul Geffner, a co-owner at Driver’s. Paul was a client of Marissa’s, and the two became friends. “He would always ask me when I would quit the bank and come work for him,” she said. Outside of work, Marissa is an award winning outrigger paddler, competing in Hawaii, California, and beyond.

Good Food Award Winners

Much of what we carry at Driver’s is made by small teams of artisans who are passionate about their craft. Our vendors work hard to make excellent food, and they work just as hard to get their goods on grocery store shelves. We love to see them win Good Food Awards, because they really deserve the recognition. We proudly stock award winners here at Driver’s, many of them local – look for the blue Good Food seal on our shelves! Read on to see this year’s winners.
