I’m sad to share the news that Pomegranates Mediterranean and Middle Eastern Grocery on Willamette at 28th (next to the TrueValue hardware store) is closing their doors. The owner, Julie, has decided to focus her attention and talents on catering, cooking classes, and home cheffing, which means she’ll still be very much of a presence in the Eugene culinary landscape, and perhaps in a more delicious form.
She expects the store will be closing at the end of August, so if you’d like to stock up on Italian, Spanish, or Middle Eastern groceries, including a fantastic olive oil and vinegar selection, cookbooks, dried beans and herbs, pastas and specialty canned goods, drop by the store as soon as you can. Everything’s on sale at 30% off. Check out their website for hours and other information.
I’ve seen some of Julie’s Persian menus and cooked a couple of her recipes, and I’d recommend her catering services for an unusual and delicious change from the usual summer party fare!
