Clementine’s Produce & Provisions

* Even though spring’s a long way off, you can get a jump on locally sourced produce by signing up for a weekly delivery of fresh veggies from Gretna’s Clementine’s Produce & Provisions for $7.50 per person, per week. And no, you don’t have to commit to 10 pounds of cabbage if you can’t stand the stuff — just let them know and you’ll never have to see that in your box. The boxes will be available for 22 weeks, from May to September, and the cutoff for subscriptions is Feb. 15. For more information and/or details, go to clementinesproduceandprovisions.blogspot.com or email them at clementinespandp@gmail.com to learn more. * Looking for a specific wine or liqueur or just feel like giving that special someone something boozy this year? The folks at Spirit World are there to help. The wine and spirits store at 75th and Pacific, normally open Mon.-Sat., 10 a.m.-9 p.m., will also be open Sundays noon-5 p.m. through Christmas. * Do you have a miniature Alice Waters on your Christmas list? Consider giving her a copy of Michael Pollan’s The Omnivore’s Dilemma for Kids: The Secrets Behind What You Eat, a slightly abridged version of Pollan’s bestselling polemic detailing what goes into those chicken nuggets and animal welfare.
