Not everything. Just everything you need.
Pantry. We love everything about that word. It’s the building blocks of any great meal, the emergency ingredient on a busy night, and your own personal Iron Chef challenge. Here at Marczyk’s we carry a well-edited selection of pantry items.
We buy from local vendors, including Jerry’s Nut House. For over fifty years this family owned and operated business in Denver has been roasting nuts, popping popcorn, bagging candy and snack mixes. Fresh! Try the giant cashews. Here in 2011, local means a whole lot more than it did when we opened. Check out “From Jolly Ranchers and Jerky “ story on Colorado products.
The Woman’s Bean Project is an outstanding Denver non-profit that has been “helping women break the cycle of poverty and unemployment” by creating and selling bean soup and chili mixes, cookie and brownie mixes, and other flavorful combos. Their brownie mix is a Denver favorite.
There’s more of course: 3000+ canned goods, frozen food stuffs, sauces, pickled veggies, grains, coffee & tea too. Olive oils rich and green, or mild for cooking. Spaghetti sauces from Italy, and from Spinelli’s, a local Denver Italian market. From Rustichella d’Abruzzo and Maestri Pastai, beautiful old world dry pasta. For baking, King Arthur Flour and Valrhona chocolate. And Crisco, because for a great crust, you gotta have Crisco. Many many different salts, spices from Savory Spice Shop, another outstanding local producer who grinds their own spices in a fragrant little shop down by the Platte River. Mancha Oro Saffron and Matiz Paella rice for the most authentic paella you can make. Frozen French hors d’oeuvres and the sweetest little ice cream sandwiches from Portland.
Our eggs and milk are Colorado companies: Morning Fresh makes cream top in glass bottles, and we source eggs from 2 small producers.
