Gruyere 1655 Makes Everything Better

Now through November, the Bi-Rite Market Cheese Department is celebrating one of our favorite European cheeses: IMG_6279Gruyere 1655. I spent a week in Switzerland last month and ate quite a bit of Gruyere. Originally, the cheese was made by two brothers in the town of Gruyere, Switzerland, and the cheese took on the city’s name after the year 1655, when a noble in the area had the cheese made for his family. There are so many reasons that you should come in to the Markets and grab your own piece of Gruyere 1655 to enjoy!

  • It’s the perfect everyday cheese–Breakfast, lunch, afternoon snack, or dinner.
  • It’s delicious–A well-rounded flavor and an amazing texture make this one of the most memorable cheeses we sell.
  • It pairs well with all of this season’s flavors–Heirloom Apples from California, Seckel Pear and Vincent Family Dried Cranberries from Oregon, or the new Underground Meats Summer Sausage from Madison, Wisconsin are incredible when paired with Gruyere!
  • It melts like a dream—Perfect for grilled cheese, quiche, a gratin, or even macaroni & cheese. Be on the lookout for recipe cards in the Markets, like the one below.
  • It’s sturdy & satisfying–Perfect for a picnic in the park, a day hike, or a weekend camping trip.
  • It preserves traditional cheese-making–Wheels of Gruyere 1655 are handmade at Fromagerie La Cret and are lovingly aged by Fromage Gruyere SA. Both firms are committed to the heritage of Switzerland’s most important cheese.
  • It’s the best cheese for Fondue—Everyone loves a pot of melted cheese on a foggy San Francisco evening, especially when it’s Gruyere 1655 in the pot.

Please stop by either Market and ask for a taste of this great Alpine cheese!

Bay to Breakers is Here–Come See Us At Divis!

IMG_0549

Must. Have. Ice. Cream.

Bay to Breakers is back in a big way on Sunday, May 17th and the event route runs right past our Divisadero Street Market. To make sure we have everything ready for runners and revelers, the Divis market will be open an hour later than usual, at 10am. The Bi-Rite Creamery Scoop Shop inside the market will open up at that time too, so we will be ready with everything you need to stay happy and hydrated and full of Cookies and Cream-y goodness. (Bay to Breakers won’t impact the 18th Street Market hours.) Bay to Breakers isn’t just the oldest consecutively-run annual footrace in the world, it’s also one of the biggest, craziest, and most fun days on the San Francisco summer calendar! The people-watching alone draws huge crowds to the race route.

Bi-Rite Market on Divisadero is the newer of our two markets and has embraced its part in the Bay to Breakers craziness since day one! We’ve had a great time the last couple of go-rounds and we’re looking to having even more fun this year.

We’ve got sandwiches!

We’ll be highlighting all of the snacks, sandwiches, beer, and water that you’ll need to enjoy the day. Grab an ice cream cone or sundae as a reward for all that hard running/walking/watching too! It promises to be a great day, and we’ll be there for you, with everything you need to keep fed, watered, and satisfied. See you on Sunday the 17th!

Bi-Rite Divis: Ready for Bay to Breakers on May 18th!

Bay to Breakers 2013 - Andrew Dalton

Bay to Breakers is coming up on Sunday, May 18th and the event route runs right past our Divisadero Street Market. To enhance the celebration, we’re opening a full hour earlier than usual at 8am, and will be ready with everything you need to stay happy and hydrated. Bay to Breakers isn’t just the oldest consecutively-run annual footrace in the world, it’s also one of the biggest, craziest, and most fun days on the San Francisco summer calendar!

Bi-Rite Market on Divisadero is the newer of our two Market locations, having flung open its doors to the Western Addition just a few months before last year’s Bay to Breakers. We had a great time and we’re looking to having even more fun our second time around.

Viet sandwiches

Sandwiches! We’ll have ’em ready to go for you as the race goes by.

We’ll be highlighting all of the snacks, sandwiches, beer and water that you’ll need to enjoy the day. Even our Bi-Rite Creamery Scoop Shop will be serving up ice cream! Whether you’re running the race or cheering from the sidelines, make sure to get up extra early and come by Divis. The day can be crazy, but we’ll be there for you, an hour early and with everything you need ready to go, to make it chilled out, fun and cool. See you on the 18th!

bothFor dessert, Bi-Rite Creamery has created two brand new Superbowl SundAES. Seahawks fans will want to grab the “Every Day I’m Russelling,” featuring Coffee Toffee and Salted Caramel ice creams, fudge, roasted almonds, and whipped cream. For Broncos fans, we ask “What Is the Manning of This?” with seasonal Orange Cardamom and Earl Grey ice creams, caramel sauce, house-made graham cracker crumble, and whipped cream. We assure you these aren’t any given sundaes, but tasting is believing, so come load up before kickoff.

 


Bi-Rite Divis is Open!

b-man with divisadero lineThought I’d never say this….but we’re open on Divisadero Street! Please come visit us 9 am – 9 pm today and every day. Store location, hours and parking info (yes, we do have one hour parking for our guests!) is here.

Salty Ginger Sundae, Divis contest winner!

We’ve spent about three years working towards this moment, so today is all about celebrating the long, winding path that brought us here. And what better way to do so than by treating ourselves to the newest additions to our Divis menu: the winners of our Divis Sandwich and Sundae contest!

The Giuseppe: Fra’ Mani salami and mortadella, provolone, lettuce, red onion, tomato, dijon mustard, pepperoncini, and lemon aioli on an Acme Rustic Baguette (congrats to Joseph Slattery!)

naima

Opening is so sweet!

The Salty Ginger: Ginger ice cream, ginger snaps, sea salt, chocolate fudge, and whipped cream (congrats to Zoe Byl!)

Now that the construction is complete, it’s time to start the important work of building relationships with our guests. Our 60 Divis staff members are eager to meet and feed you. Plus, a bunch of our passionate food makers are joining us to give out tastes of their cheese, jams and more: check out the Divis events on our calendar here.

See you soon! And now more than ever, please let us know how we can better serve you.

P.S. You’ve gotta check out this video of neighborhood pup Trotter on his first visit to the store!

Guess this leaves only one thing…Opening March 13th!

Pre-opening Divis staff meeting

We can’t even wait to open our doors at 550 Divisadero (at Hayes). Just like our 18th Street Market, Divis will be open every day from 9am-9pm and will be a one-stop shop for farm direct produce, a full-service butcher counter, deli with prepared foods from our on-site kitchen, natural wine & spirits, fresh bread, local dairy… and of course important doodads like toilet paper and deodorant.

shak its time

It’s time!

What took us so long? We renovated and retrofitted the interior of the building –which was one of the original Safeways—while taking care to preserve the art deco façade. And we’re upping the ante from our 18th St. Market: Divis has an old world style cut-to-order cheese counter and an ice cream scoop shop right inside (yes, Sam’s sundae with chocolate ice cream, Maldon sea salt, bergamot olive oil and whipped cream will be here)!

We hope you’re ready to give us feedback on what dishes and items you love and what we can do better, so we can evolve together. We’ve got a 30 year lease, so we’re planning to be around for a while and we look forward to feeding the neighborhood for years.

Big thanks to our new neighbors for weathering the construction. And thanks to everyone who has already made us feel welcome—from the other Divisadero Merchants to school and church leaders from the Western Addition, Haight, Fillmore, and Hayes Valley neighborhoods that so richly intersect here!facade feb

 

 


The Mill: Warming up Divis for Us!

mill1

Josey was workin hard (or hardly workin?) when I visited on Saturday

Sure we’ve been talking about our new Market on Divisadero a lot lately…but the favorite Divisadero-related topic in our staff break room might actually be the one a couple blocks up the street from us: the opening of The Mill! The Mill is a bakery and café collaboration between Jeremy of Four Barrel Coffee and Josey Baker, a bread baking, bicycle delivering, Vermont-repping guy who’s now operating San Francisco’s only flour mill in the space.

I’m proud to say our grocery team was hip to the goodness of Josey’s bread early on–they brought his loafs on to our shelves two years ago, and since he’s garnered quite a following.

Faun, our deli manager at Divis, might win the prize for biggest Mill fan so far. Get a load of all of the different toasts and brews she’s tasted so far:

mill2

Love how open the space is–we’re able to watch Josey bake every loaf!

“During the first week of the Mill being open, I’d already been there four times.  On Wednesday, I had a macchiato and some thickly cut Josey Baker whole wheat bread toasted and slathered with almond butter and honey.  It was perfect after my workout in Golden Gate Park. Saturday, we bought a partial loaf to have with eggs and bacon at home for breakfast. We toasted it and spooned my friend Laura’s homemade blackberry jam. Monday, I introduced a friend visiting from out of town – where else can you order toast with cinnamon sugar and butter with expertly made coffee?  And today I went back to pick up some more Four Barrel beans to grind and brew at home. Living around the corner, in Lower Haight, it’s a nice addition to the neighborhood.”

For the full scoop on the Mill and all the deliciousness contained within it, check out this Bold Italic article. We’re just thankful to have such a killer place for toast and coffee to fuel us once we open on March 13th!


DIY: Contest for Bi-Rite Divisadero Special Sandwich & Sundae!

sandwich sundae contest

We’re opening our doors at 550 Divisadero in mid-March, and we’d love your help with the menu. So put on your chef’s hat and ponder this:

If Bi-Rite Divis were a sandwich, what would it look like? What would it taste like?

What about if it were an ice cream sundae? Would it be gooey? Salty? Spicy?

We’re asking you, our talented and vocal creative community, to help us create a special sandwich and sundae that will only be available at Bi-Rite Divis. We’re looking for a new frontier in deli and Creamery tastiness. No idea is too crazy, far flung or niche… think big, think small, think about what makes the Western Addition neighborhood tick!

Just make sure it’s finger lickin’ good.

Email us to submit your idea (each sundae or sandwich idea must include a menu name as well as the ingredients/components) for either a sandwich or sundae (or both!) by Friday, February 22, and we promise to salivate over every last entry until we select the winners. In addition to bragging rights, the two winners will receive a free festival pass ($95 value) to our first ever San Francisco Food & Farm Film Festival at the Roxie Theater, including the opening night bash at Four Barrel coffee. And of course, the free sandwich or sundae of their creation on opening day 🙂

So what do YOU want to be eating in March??
