St. Patrick’s Day, Spring Hours, Easter Chocolate and Cheese

Springtime is land awakening. The March winds are the morning yawn. – Lewis Grizzard

Spring has sprung at Herma’s. Not only do little bunnies and beautifully wrapped packages for spring grace our store front window, an amazing amount of beautifully packaged Easter chocolate in pretty spring colours have arrived and may be found throughout Herma’s – so pretty & cheerful. The silky-smooth chocolates inside the pretty boxes are amazing too.

Herma’s NEW Spring Hours have begun.

Monday to Saturday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Sunday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

St. Patrick’s Day is this Friday!

When Irish hearts are happy, all the world seems bright and gay. And when Irish eyes are smiling, sure, they steal your heart away. – Bing Crosby, When Irish Eyes are Smiling

The beauty of Ireland and the charm of its people are in our hearts and minds this week as we look forward to a day of celebration. If you would like to create a meal that exemplifies what the Irish might enjoy at their dinner table look no further than Herma’s.

Two Irish-Inspired Meal Ideas

Irish Stew

Transform the Village Grocer’s Beef, Beer & Onions by making it over into an Irish Stew for St. Patrick’s Day. Add Hak’s carrots and peas, also potatoes (boiled, sliced and quartered).

Bangers and Mash

Place the Village Grocer Mashed Potatoes on a plate with two Village Grocer Sausages on top. Pour a mixture of gravy and broth over the food and you have a delicious Bangers & Mash. Add peas for something green.

Tip: Herma likes to add olive oil and/or melted butter to her mashed potatoes for smoother consistency.

Our favourite Irish toast of 2023?

There are good ships and there are wood ships. The ships that sail the sea. But the best ships are friend-ships, and may they always be. – Irish Toast

Whiskey Glasses at Herma’s

If you are wanting to purchase a set or just one or two whiskey glasses for your celebrating with Irish whiskey this St. Patrick’s Day, remember that Herma has a beautiful selection from which to choose (like the Everst Whiskey Glasses seen above). A great souvenir for the festive occasion.
