Totes Amazing: Fresh Tote Bags For Fresh Food

In a landmark decision for New York City, single-use plastic bags are now banned pretty much everywhere. Fortunately, Provisions is not affected because we’ve always used paper bags made from 100% recycled materials (40% of which are post-consumer!) and offered our iconic reusable shopping totes for sale.

To celebrate the bag ban, we’ve added a couple more bags to our line up. Our new tote bags are made from sturdy canvas, and are just the right size to hold all your dinner ingredients or just your daily essentials. If you’ve ever envied our staff’s uniform T-shirts, our totes feature the same artwork in a durable screen transfer. Choose from Rosie the Chickener on navy canvas or Cluckira (an homage to the 1988 cult classic Akira) on black canvas. Here’s to saving the environment one bag at a time!

A Valentine Of Any Flavor

Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be a greeting card company holiday! Throw out those narrow definitions of who gets to be your Valentine, and choose whoever you like—including yourself. Likewise, Valentine treats don’t always have to be sweet, and we’re leaning into our salty side, too. This Valentine’s Day, we’re continuing our tradition of sourcing our collection from small, often local producers. No mass-produced chocolates in a heart-shaped box here!

For the Valentine who appreciates artistry and detail, these hand-painted chocolate roses from Maggie Louise Confections are sure to spark inspiration. Hailing from Austin, TX—considered by many to be one of Brooklyn’s unofficial sister cities—Maggie Louise Confections was founded by a New Yorker far from home, and each chocolate piece is crafted with singular care.

These Sweeter Cards dark chocolate bars are the perfect edible alternative to a greeting card. Each bar, filled with pockets of salted caramel, is made with Fair Trade Certified™ ingredients, like the cane sugar in their caramel. Small batches of caramel in copper kettles, stirred by hand, ensure the highest quality for the best expression of your sweetest feelings.

The Upper West Side’s own Treat House has stocked our shelves with their whimsical crispy rice treats! Bright pops of color bring the nostalgia, making it a perfect small gift for the Valentine you’ve known since back in the day.

Of course, we’ve also got plenty of classic Brooklyn favorites, like Fine & Raw, Eat Chic, and Raaka! Whatever flavor of feelings you indulge in this weekend—sweet, salty, and everything in between—we’re sure to have just the treats you and yours are craving. Shop our Valentine’s Day collection here!
