Advice From The Aisles: Himalayan Salt Sensation

By Kirsten Malzac, Wellness Department

The holidays may be well over, but the demand for Himalayan Salt products lives on in the Wellness Department at City Market. Himalayan Salt is pure halite, a crystal salt uncovered nearly 260 million years ago as the Primordial Sea evaporated leaving behind a 12,000ft deep and 150 mile wide deposit in the Himalayan Mountains in Pakistan. It is now mined in the Khewra Salt Mines giving us the pink salt crystals we see on the shelves today.

Advice From The Aisles: Travel Essentials

By Hailey Neal, Wellness Department

February has few recommendations except for the means we use to endure it: late mornings in bed, hot coffee, and best of all, getting the heck out of town. Whether you’re taking a tropical vacation or just a long drive, sometimes that dreary, gloomy visage on the other side of the glass is better if it’s moving. When you’re on the move it can be all too easy, however, to kick all of your New Year’s Resolutions in favor of convenient and delicious indulgences. That’s why we recommend getting your ducks in a row before you’re tempted to buy that eleven dollar hand cream somebody imposes on you in a shopping mall in Holyoke. Here’s what we’re packing in our travel bags to ensure we’re bringing the wellness with us.

The days may be getting longer but that doesn’t always mean you’re feeling any lighter. The holidays, for many of us, were a time for good old fashioned gluttony. We pampered ourselves and each other for weeks with cookies, beverages, and good company. Now comes the season of guilt. The gym is more packed than usual and heads of lettuce are flying off the shelves. Everybody’s got some kind of resolution to live up to.

Advice from the Aisles: Holiday Essentials

By Hailey Neal, Wellness Department

It’s the holiday season and Burlington is a flurry. So, when you’re dragging yourself around from shop to shop, don’t forget you can pick up more than a few of your holiday essentials right here, since we all know we end up at City Market sooner or later. If it's gifts you’re after, check out our incense and candle section where you’ll find a store favorite, the Seracon maple candles. These candles, which come in a recycled maple syrup tin, have a wooden wick so they crackle as they burn. Not to mention, they smell up the whole house like a maple cookie.

It’s finally November, and that means your Facebook has been flooded with happy recounts of pumpkin carving, apple picking, and brand-new Ibex wardrobes.  But along with the delicious indulgence of the harvest comes the less glamorous turn-of-the-season companions: runny noses, blossoming dragon-scales, and maybe (if you’re like me) a few extra pounds.
