What's in a Name?

What's in a name? Plenty. We all look for certain names when we are providing for our families. We might want to know the country in which a certain item was grown. Perhaps we are fond of a specific brand of salad dressing. In these cases, names help us identify familiar and desired products. At Yoke's, names have the added value of describing relationships. As you shop your local Yokes Produce Department look for signs that identify specific growers and farms that have partnered with us to provide you with the best quality produce available.


Welcome to the Deli Blog!

Hello there, glad you've come to check out the deli blog! I'm Sage, I work at our Sandpoint location. Been there for a little over 9 years now. I work in the afternoons so come in and say hi to me. Ok so it's officially the holiday time especially since there is snow on the ground now and everyone's busy, right? We have our pepperoni pizzas on sale for $7.99. Most of our pizzas are $9.99 so it's always a good deal in case you're not a pepperoni fan. Grab one to take home and cook or we can pop one in the oven for you, only takes ten minutes.

Thanksgiving Wine

As we approach Thanksgiving, many things are running through our busy minds: who's cooking what, where will everyone sit, is Uncle Jim bringing his obnoxious dog, are there enough sleeping places for babies, etc. The biggest question in our household, is "Who is bringing the wine!?" It's a question that many feel the call to answer, and for that, we are grateful.

Spiced Wine

In the next few weeks, the weather is expected (finally) to take a dip into the 60's. With that in mind, it is becoming perfect time for spiced wine, or mulled wine as some people call it. It is also called "Gluhwein" and some wineries in the area actually bottle it and sell it.

This drink is one of those seasonal items that makes you happy on all fronts. It tastes delicious, it makes your house smell good, it literally warms you up and with the added brandy, it doesn't take many glasses to bring a smile to your face.
