Coho Salmon: Fresh From Alaska

Wild Alaska Coho Salmon, also known as “silver salmon” is harvested from mid-June through late October when the Alaskan ocean waters are icy cold and clear. This year’s harvest locations include the Ugashik River, Yukon River, Fire Island and Beluga Point; all on Alaska’s Cook Inlet.

By Heinen's Grocery Store
In 1929, Joe Heinen opened the doors of a small butcher shop on the east side of Cleveland, Ohio, aiming to establish himself as the city’s purveyor of quality meats. As customers came into Heinen’s new shop for their meat purchases, they began asking him to carry groceries as well. Joe added homemade peanut butter, pickles and donuts and by 1933, business had grown enough to include a line of produce and canned goods. Heinen’s Grocery Store was born.
