WELCOME SPRING WITH ART
The Tubby Olive’s theme for the month of March is “Art”, which we celebrate in unique ways at each store location. What a better way to celebrate the coming of spring than to visit the 185th PHS Philadelphia Flower Show,
ARTiculture, where art meets horticulture
( http://theflowershow.com). PHS proudly partners with 18 art museums to provide an extraordinary combination of art and horticulture. The Flower Show begins on March 1st and runs through March 9th. While you are enjoying this amazing show, visit The Tubby Olive in the Reading Terminal Market and mention this newsletter to receive 10% off your purchase! This is an in-store offer for this location only.
Be sure to stop at The Tubby Olive in Doylestown and Newtown this month to view a variety of original paintings and photography from Bucks County artists. All artwork is available for purchase throughout the month, no registration needed.
SATURDAY, MARCH 1 from 2-4pm in Doylestown:
MEET THE ARTISTS reception for Mary Ann Bowman and Diane DeAngelis. Diane started painting seriously 8 years ago and enjoys working in oils, creating still life and landscapes paintings. Diane has entered many Bucks County and Philadelphia area art shows and took an award at the New Hope Art League juried show in 2013. She has exhibited in several local restaurants as well. Diane’s role as President of The New Hope Art League has created close ties to the many Bucks County area artists. Mary Ann is an accomplished artist/author/illustrator whose interests and talents include photography, sculpture, book-making, painting and drawing. Mary Ann has also written and illustrated a series of children’s books called “Katie the Dog”. She will be reading one of these books at 1:30, before the artist reception at The Tubby Olive, to celebrate National Read Across America Day. All children are welcome!

FEATURING STONY BROOK BUTTERNUT SQUASH & PUMPKIN SEED OILS
Pumpkin Seed Oils
We love these two delicious artisanal oils from Stony Brook WholeHeartedFoods located in the Finger Lakes region of New York. Butternut Squash Seed Oil & Pumpkin Seed Oil are crafted by using locally grown squash seeds, roasting them in small batches, and pressing them into oil using a gentle expeller-press and filtration method that maintains freshness, subtle flavor and depth of color. Rich in omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids and vitamins A and E. For more information, visit Stony Brook’s website: http://www.wholeheartedfoods.com.
TOASTED SESAME OIL. Now available in 2-ounce bottles in both stores. If you have not sampled our Sesame Oil, you will be wowed by its rich toasted flavor and aroma, and its ability to transform your recipes from “everyday” to “gourmet.” Sesame oil is nutrient rich and contains antioxidants, minerals and vitamins. It has a long shelf life and a high smoke point, so it is ideal for stir frying, sautéing, roasting and finishing.
