Thank you for your support

This time of year brings reflection. A time to look at what we have and haven't accomplished in the year and a time to look at ahead towards the new year.

It is a little more than a year ago that we opened Organic Connection in Brewster. And with any comprehensive retail food market, the costs of fitting out, setting up and establishing a new store are financially significant. It generally takes some time before such a business becomes profitable. We shall look forward to the new year for that time.

But, success also comes in other forms. To create a place that is so different to all others - and for it to be so wonderfully, gratefully appreciated by you, our customers, our friends. For this success, we are so grateful to you.

Another Jazzy Sunday Afternoon with the Diamond Jubilators

This Sunday (December 29th) between 2:30 & 5pm, the Diamond Jubilators are back at Organic Connection to fill the store with their fun, entertaining & uplifting jazzy music.

Dinner Nights

The next dinner nights at Organic Connection will be on Saturday, January 5th and Saturday, January 19th.

As usual the mouth-watering menu will be sensationally delicious as well as using organic ingredients.

Menu will consist of many meat & vegetarian dishes, soups, salads, appetisers, desserts & beverages.
