BUILD A LOCAL BURGER

Grateful Bread Burger Buns

This Sacramento bakery makes big, beautiful burger buns that are a worthy vehicle for all the local goodies you can pile on. Owner Joe Artim’s goal is to use the best and simplest ingredients possible for a fabulous product.

All-Beef Patties

A truly better burger starts with, well, the burger…the Co-op offers two outstanding options if you want to go with the classic all-beef patty. And of course, our beef suppliers never use antibiotics or growth hormones!

Prather Ranch cattle are raised in a closed herd on organic pasture and processed on-site at the facility near Mt. Shasta. Dry-aging allows more of the natural juices to be absorbed into the meat, making a more tender and flavorful burger.

Humboldt Grassfed Beef is as healthy as a hamburger can get—naturally high in omega-3s, low in overall fat, lean and delicious! Humboldt is 100% grassfed, raised on pasture in Humboldt County.

Lettuce

Our scorching summers make growing tender salad greens a challenge, but Feeding Crane Farms has a knack for it! This North Sacramento farm delivers greens to the Co-op’s Produce Department throughout the season!.

Tomatoes

You can go crazy with offerings from pretty much every farm in our region! So many colors, flavors and varieties to choose from, but you can’t go wrong with a thick slab of a Red Beefsteak, Cherokee Purple or Brandywine.

Cheese

For a traditional cheeseburger, we really like Petaluma Creamery’s perfectly melty cheeses. Try the Cheddar, Pepper Jack or Monterey Jack—the Co-op Cheese Department receives them in big blocks and cuts them into smaller pieces, so although they’re made with high quality Sonoma County milk, they’re a bargain!

Bubbies Pickles

Did you know these iconic pickles are made in Stockton? Classic kosher dills add a pleasing crunch on the side. Bread & Butter Chips are sliced and ready to pile on for a little bit of sweetness.

Onions

We love thinly sliced raw red torpedo onions when we can get them. Otherwise, try grilling or sautéing any local onion for a zesty topping.

Mustard & mayo

Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. The iconic local brewery also makes mustard. For a little sweetness, try the Pale Ale & Honey Spice; for something spicier, top your burger with the Porter & Spicy Brown

Make your own locavore mayo with Bariani Olive Oil and the amazing pastured eggs from Say Hay Farms. Try the recipe on page 32 of the Reporter

 

Make it fancy

Bacon and Bleu with Llano Seco bacon and Point Reyes Bay Blue Cheese

The Good Stuff Tomato Jam. Made in Sacramento from local tomatoes—look for a new batch at the Co-op this summer

Farmhouse Culture Krauts. These krauts from Santa Cruz might be the new and zany zip your burger is looking for – a variety of flavors is available in the refrigerated section
