Herma’s News – The Vintage Pizza Pie Co. on Saturday and Ideas for Picnicing

The Spring came suddenly, bursting upon the world as a child bursts into a room, with a laugh and a shout and hands full of flowers. – anonomys  

Dear Customers,

The outdoors are finally reflecting our image of what spring should be – green grass, blooming trees, birds singing and animals taking care of their young. What a happy time it is as we celebrate Victoria Day this weekend.

Think picnics by the lake or enjoying a smorgasbord of foods on your patio surrounded by nature. Be sure to stop by Herma’s to stock up on all the foods you need, and while there, if you are visiting midday on Saturday, enjoy sampling the Vintage Pizza Pie Co. Pizza and Uncle Chester’s Hot Sauces.

Special Guests at Herma’s this Saturday at 12 p.m.

Herma’s Fine Foods & Gifts is excited to have two guests offering samples of their awesome foods.

The Vintage Pizza Pie Company from Northumberland County make their pizza from scratch and will be serving up samples fresh from the wood fired oven attached to their vintage truck.

We love their Carnivore, White Dragon, Mushroom Parmesan and Prosciutto Honey Truffle Wood-Fired Pizzas which may be found in our freezers. Place in 450 degree pre-heated oven and it will be ready to eat in 5 minutes.

Healthy, delicious and easy to prepare!

Uncle Chester’s Scale for each hot sauce

Uncle Chester from Trenton will be in the store with samples of his hot pepper sauces. He uses local, farm fresh ingredients that are made in small batches with extreme care.

A squeeze of lime, some minced ginger and garlic, chopped hot peppers, and an array of other delectable ingredients make for the perfect hot sauce to pair with your home cooked meal. – Uncle Chester’s

Enjoy a picnic this weekend!

All the right ingredients may be found at Herma’s!

Here’s what you’ll need…


Enjoy crusty baguette, sliced thin and ready for cheese or pate. A few cracker options are also nice to have.

Find baguettes in our freezer section with other Manoucher Breads.


We carry Prosciutto Toscana, Fennel Salami, Speck Di Montagna which may be cut to your liking. Other fabulous pre-cut salamis are also available.

Our Italian meats do not contain nitrates and are very healthy, so eat up!

And don’t forget about Herma’s Chicken Liver Pate. A crowd favorite!


When choosing only a couple of cheeses for picnicking, we suggest a soft goat cheese and a firm cheese, such as aged gouda or cheddar. For a larger picnic, a creamy camembert or Brie, a semi-firm blue or Gruyère would be nice to add.

And don’t forget to pick up a good, salted butter like the one we carry from Prince Edward Island. So pure and healthy, you can really tell the difference.

Just a few of the cheeses we currently have available are…

Stonetown’s Grand Trunk (award-winning Gruyere style cheese) – Black Cow Cheddar – Paulus Abbey’s Beer Cheese – Frysk Hynder’s Single Malt Whiskey Cheese – Roquefort Carles Blue (The best in blues!) – Zacharie Cloutier Sheep’s Cheese – Spreadable Fromage Kapuskoise Artisan Chevre

Nuts and Olives

To take a break from spreading during your picnic be sure to pick up some nuts and olives. We carry a large selection of olives, many of which are from Greece.

We recommend our NEW Divina Feta Stuffed Olives, Pitted Greek Olive Mix and Olive Tapenade which are not only delicious and fresh, they also come conveniently packaged in plastic containers for on-the-go eating.

Also look for Marcona Almonds and other favorite condiments.

Spreads and Dips

You’ll love the large variety of spreads and dips we carry. No matter what your in the mood for, we have something just right for what you are craving. The following spreads and dips are made daily in our very own kitchen using fresh ingredients.

Savory Cheddar – Beer Cheese – Bacon & Cheddar – Spicy Pimento – Herma’s Stilton Pate – Goat Cheese Rounds – Herma’s Chevre – Sundried Tomato Dip – Lemo-licious Cheese – Seafood Dazzler


Special Cheese Knives – Spreaders – Paring Knife – Small Serrated Knife – Cheese Board – Napkins

Bonne Appetite!

We hope you will visit Herma’s on Saturday to meet our special guests and enjoy a slice of pizza. And, of course, don’t forget to pick up picnic foods and special Victoria Day foods for entertaining.
