What's Tasty at Sigona's Farmers Market

John Sigona’s Pick of the Week: Black Maroo Raisins

John Sigona’s Pick of the Week: Black Maroo Raisins

They are back…Just in time for Thanksgiving Stuffing and at a very special re-introductory price!

Visalia, California-grown

Black Maroo Raisins

10 oz. container

Regular $1.99

On sale for 99¢

Remember these impossibly hard to find (except at Sigona’s), wonderful tasting raisins? Well…we sold out of them last year and I thought we’d never see the likes of these gems again—the one farmer who had been growing Black Maroo Grapes had given up on them due to unprofitable returns.

Continual requests for these exquisite raisins have poured in over this past year and until now, I’ve searched and searched but continued coming up empty—but after lots of research, it appeared that not one soul in California’s Central Valley was growing them—until I finally discovered that, indeed, one farmer was a “Black Maroo Kind of a Guy!” He loves these grapes and the fabulously delicious sun dried raisins as the end result…

John Sigona is the dried fruit & nut buyer for Sigona's Farmers Markets in Palo Alto and Redwood City, Calif.

I may not again be selling these raisins at such a special price, but I do expect to keep them at a consistently reasonable $1.99 per 10 oz. container.

So if you love raisins, load up at this incredible price of 99¢ (10 oz.) container.

Prices good through Nov. 22, 2011.
