Delicious food and holiday treats make the Christmas season special. If you’re like us, you’re busy baking cookies, wrapping presents, and decorating the tree. Dean’s is a one-stop shop for the holiday season.
Of course, you’ll find all the ingredients for your family dinners, including hams and turkeys. Don’t miss Dean’s special family recipe for Swedish Sausage too! We make it fresh at Dean’s, and you’ll find it frozen in our meat department. In case you’re not familiar with Swedish Sausage, it’s an old-world recipe that includes pork, potatoes, and spices. It makes a great main dish, but we also like to cook and slice it for an appetizer.
We love the fresh bakery items from our partner, Grandma’s Bakery. Their cookies, sweet breads, and dinner rolls are the best you’ll find in the Twin Cities. And don’t miss a carton of Eggnog, in Dean’s dairy section.
If you want to make entertaining easier, you’ll want to grab the ready-cut products, like “crazy fresh” fruits and veggies in our produce department. And holy moly, those Holiday Red Grapes are huge and juicy!
In our deli department, find Kretschmar sliced meats and cheeses, our favorite “pit-smoked” summer sausage, and Ellsworth Cheese Curds. People love grazing these on an appetizer tray, along with our savory stuffed olives (garlic, jalapeno, pimento!)
If you’re thinking about gift giving, let us help. We make fresh, beautiful fruit baskets at Dean’s. Just ask our produce manager to make one for you! It’s such an appreciated hostess gift or holiday treat for hard to shop for people. You can also find greeting cards and gift wrap at Dean’s.
Wondering about other hard to shop for people? The grocery store to the rescue! A gift bag full of candy canes, chocolate treats, nuts and snacks would make anyone happy. And for those caffeinated folks, Tiny Footprint Coffee bags, ground or beans, are the best in the industry and make a great gift.
If you’re visiting others for the holiday, don’t show up empty handed. Poinsettias and pineapples are welcome gifts. And of course, a Dean’s Gift Card is one size fits all. Merry Christmas!
