Teri Miller, Senior Category Manager, The Fresh Market
“I absolutely LOVE my mother’s stewed cabbage—sautéed with bacon, salt, and pepper...mmmm! The aroma and taste...it is the perfect comfort food!”
Gabriela D'Arrigo, Vice President of Marketing and Communications, D'Arrigo New York
“Every St. Patrick’s Day, our Irish employees bring homemade Irish soda bread to the office for all of us to enjoy. It’s a great tradition going back four decades at D’Arrigo New York to celebrate one of the many cultures that make up our team.”
Caitlin Tierney, Senior Director of Fresh, 99 Cents Only Stores
“When it comes to my favorite green foods, I love avocados and Bolthouse’s Green Goodness® juice. Wishing everyone a happy St. Patrick’s Day!”
Alexandra Rae Danell, Marketing Manager, Country Sweet Produce
“There is a traditional Irish colcannon dish made up of mashed potatoes and kale or cabbage. This St. Patrick’s Day, try swapping out traditional potatoes with sweet potatoes and pair it with chicken sausage!”
Jennifer Velasquez, Industry Marketing Consultant
“This St. Patrick’s day looks a little different than previous years, but my friends and I would usually go to our favorite Irish pub decked out in at least one green thing so we don’t get pinched. We drink Guinness of course, and probably one ‘green beer.’ Keeping it on the healthy side at home, we’ve made snack boards mirroring the Irish flag: green celery, white ranch or blue cheese dip in the middle, and orange carrots on the other side!”
May the road rise to meet you, this St. Patrick’s Day and beyond.
