Nothing says Fall like pumpkin and nothing says Halloween like sweets. Bert's Red Apple has dazzling pumpkin desserts like Uncle Seth's pumpkin cookies, all individually wrapped. For a dramatic party table centerpiece, try the subtle sweetness of pumpkin cream cake, which is a pre-sliced, ready-to-serve pumpkin pound cake with whipped cream frosting. Rich pumpkin cheese cake cookies, pumpkin scones and classic pumpkin pie are all ready to pick up for the office party or neighborhood get-together. Oh and don't forget Jody's favorite, Dreyer's pumpkin ice cream; she says it's the best.
What would Halloween be without the candy? We have all the wickedly delicious treats: candy corn, caramels, gummies, sours, chocolate bars, peanut butter cups, etc. from the brands you know and caramel wraps for apples. Happy Trick-or-Treating from your favorite grocer, Bert's Red Apple.
Need a terrific wine to pair with the special dinner you have planned? Not only do we have a huge wine selection at Bert's, we also have a full time, in-store wine steward who can help you pair the perfect wine with any meal. He is amazing at pairing any of our wines we have in stock and which one will go better with beef, poultry, fish, how you're going to cook it and what you're having with it. If we don't carry the wine he thinks would be perfect, he'll be happy to special order it for you.
In our fantastic wine department, we have a local Washington section, a California section, a variety of other domestics, and a nice selection of international wines, including a lot of New Zealand and Australian wines. Not only will we place special orders (we can order cases), we also offer discounts on cases and half cases.

We carry potted mums in all the fall colors to be used to decorate and enjoy indoors and outdoors. They should continue to bloom for several weeks. These are also great for gifts. Now you have accents with that Autumn Glow!
Hint: If a frost is expected, bring the potted mums in, they aren't hardy enough to survive frost conditions.
At Bert's Red Apple our pears are fresh-picked from the trees at just the right time, allowing the fruit to hang on the tree until they are ripe, full of flavor, deliciously juicy and ready for our loyal customers to eat. Our goal is to bring you all the local varieties of the pears Anjou, Bartlett, Bosc and more from orchards in Washington and Oregon. They arrive fresh, sweet, delicate in flavor and perfectly ripe at their peak of the season during the cold months of winter. That means the season is just started and you have plenty of time to enjoy pears in your lunch box, baked for breakfast, in salads, tarts, poached and more. You can depend on Bert's Red Apple's consistent quality fruit throughout the year.
Pears ripen from the inside out, so try carefully squeezing the neck of a pear to test for softness. If there is a little give then you know a pear is at its peak and ready to eat. Not only are pears delicious, but they are also great from a nutritional standpoint as an excellent source of fiber and vitamin C.
Traditionally, Bartletts are known as a canning pear, but they are so much more. Try eating right out of your hand like an apple for a healthy snack, fresh sliced into a salad or present pear slices on a platter with cheeses and nuts. Bartletts are great for baking into a tart or quick breads. For a warm way to start the day, try them in the morning poached or baked in a ramekin. Bosc or Bartlett pears give our baked pear recipe the best flavor. For baked pears, set in a ramekin whole, and with core removed. Add 3 tablespoons brown sugar into the cavity, dot with 1/2 tablespoon butter, chopped nuts, and sprinkle with ready-made pumpkin spice (available in our spice section) or sprinkle with your favorite spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger or any combination of those. Then bake in the oven at 350 for 30 to 40 minutes. Top with whipped cream or sprinkle with a dusting of powdered sugar. Serve with toast to dip into the juices that surround the pear. This is a great way to start any day, but especially on these cold mornings!
Bert's Red Apple has been a fixture in the Madison Park neighborhood for generations. When Bert first started his grocery business in the late 1930's, he was founding a family run business that would not only be dedicated to providing excellent products and service, but also to serving the Madison Park community. Bert set the standard of a caring and compassionate small-business owner that we strive to match every day. Learn more about the history of Bert's Red Apple on our About Us page.
