Upcoming HCM Event: Dress-Up Tea Party

We know it’s a busy time of year. That’s why it’s all the more important to take a breather and do something to relax. This Sunday, August 30th at 4:00pm, Hill Country Market is hosting a Dress-Up Tea Party. Wear your best tea time outfit from any era and enjoy an afternoon tea with tea time foods. This event will also be hosted by Sam, our neighbor from Turning Leaf Acupuncture. Sam will be discussing some of the many health benefits of the teas you’ll get to enjoy at the event.

Bring along your friends, dress to impress and chat over tea on our patio. We’d love to see some beautiful hats and other fun tea time outfits!

Be Sure To Enjoy: Picnic Season!

The summer weather is in full swing and many of us know that here in Wisconsin, summer sadly won’t last long. Winter will be here before you know it, [cue Alfred Hitchcock’s, “Psycho”, shower scene music].What does that mean for us? It means to not miss a minute of the summer weather. This is an important time of year to get out and spend time reconnecting with friends and family.

One way to do that involves our specialty, great food! In particular, having a picnic. Sharing a meal has traditionally been a way to show trust, friendship and love to those you care for and a picnic combines a delightful meal with the great outdoors. You can’t really go wrong there.

As we wrap up July and head into August, remember to enjoy this last stretch of the picnic season. Here are some of HCM’s favorite basket picks to help get those wheels turning.

Looking for a spin on traditional wine? Try our wine of the month, Sweet Pea Apple Wine. This wine is a refreshing detour from traditional grape wines. With the fresh taste of Washington apples, natural peach and hints of blackberries and strawberries, Sweet Pea features a crisp and clean finish, similar to a Riesling. It’s the perfect kick-off to spring and the upcoming summer. Grab this light and fruity wine, some friends, and enjoy a relaxing evening on the patio.
