New Ellwood's Canvas Tote Bags!

Tired of using paper bags? We are too. Our new organic canvas tote bags are now available at the store for just $5.99 each. Not only are they grown with US organic cotton but unlike most bags these days, they’re also manufactured in the US too! They’re available at the checkouts.

Expansion Revealed!

In just one short week the construction you’ve come to know and love will come to an end. Instead of saws, hammers and drilling, you’ll hear the sound of coffee grinders and juicers – our expansion will be complete! Mark your calendars for Friday, March 23rd, as the day Ellwood Thompson’s welcomes you to experience our new space, to include:

– Extended Seating Area

– Community Room

– Coffee & Juice Bar

– Expanded Meat & Seafood Selection

– Full Service Bakery

Thank you again for your patience and excitement for what will be the best Ellwood Thompson’s yet!
