Licking County is celebrating its first annual Local Food Week, and we at River Road are quite excited!! In fact, from August 16th through August 22nd,  River Road Coffeehouses Granville and Newark are offering all our customers Hartzler Milk in their hot or iced specialty drinks for no upcharge!!  What is Hartzler milk, and why is it special?  The Hartzler Family Dairy, located in Wooster, Ohio, grazes cows freely in pasture where they consume green grass during  warm weather months.  The milk is non-homogenized (you might see some cream separated from the rest of the milk….this is normal!), and it is pasteurized at low temperatures to preserve healthy enzymes while killing harmful bacteria.

Additionally, did you know that River Road Coffeehouse offers many local products on a regular basis?  At Granville, our muffins and scones are made by Lucky Cat Bakery, we carry delicious Granville Gourmet Whoopie Pies, and we sell chocolates from Newark’s Created In Splendor.  At both stores, we sell our wonderful biscotti made by Susie Pisano, gluten-free items from Gluten Free Expressions, Old-Fashioned Cinnamon Rolls by ToddleSquat Bakery, and our Coffee is roasted by Licking County’s only commercial coffee roaster (One Line Coffee).  In addition, our Wiggin Street Coffee store in Gambier, Ohio, makes all our hummus, stromboli, chicken and tuna salad, and our cookies.



River Road Coffeehouse and Palumbo’s Italian Market Pair Up at Newark On The Square!

River Road Coffeehouse and Palumbo’s Italian Market Pair Up at Newark On The Square!

It’s official…River Road Coffeehouse and Palumbo’s Italian Market are planning a new shared location in downtown Newark “on the square” at 26 North Park Place.  River Road Coffeehouse co-founders Mark and David Forman and Managing Partner Stacey Forman Donnelly made the joint announcement Wednesday afternoon with Cindy and Paul Palumbo, owners of Palumbo’s Italian Market.  The businesses are neighbors on River Road in Granville, Ohio and believe that their complimentary menus and shared community values will provide a strong foundation for a successful business venture. They also hope it provides an alternative model for local businesses working together to support the renewal of the Newark center city district.  Both businesses stress that their current stores will all remain open! Current plans have the new location opening in mid-September. photo (2)
