Russo's Food News + Specials

Native Strawberries are here at Russo's! Our Native Strawberries are grown on small farms in western Massachusetts. Enjoy this exciting time of the late spring/early summer season! And it is no coincidence that we have homemade shortcake biscuits on special this week. Just add strawberries to the shortcake biscuits and you have a fun, easy, delicious dessert!

Corn has arrived in time for Father's Day! We drive to a Georgia farm several times a week to pick up this delicious fresh corn! As the summer progresses, the corn will be coming from our local farmers.

Our latest "Tony Tip" on melons is below! We also have a "Tony Tip" on rhubarb. Rhubard may be intimidating but Tony Russo explains how to choose the best ones! So take a look at the bottom of this newsletter for your Tony Tips

Welcome to our Updated Website!

Welcome to our updated Russo’s website! 

We hope you will enjoy taking a look at our products, photographs and a brief history of our family business. We have added some fun sections like “News at Russo’s,” which includes our favorite "Tony Tips" on how-to prepare popular and, perhaps, intimidating fruits and vegetables.

We have added a new online e-commerce section which will allow you to purchase select items at Russo’s and pick them up in our store (or our Russo's Tote which will ship to anywhere in the United States).

We also have two new ways to buy Russo's online:

BloomNation now delivers Russo’s flowers, arrangements and bouquets 

Mercato which delivers (almost) everything in our store! Mercato delivers a radius of up to 16 miles from Russo’s. Or you may order on Mercato to pick-up in our store. 

We are very excited about BloomNation and Mercato!

In addition to these changes, we also have a “Specials” section which will be emailed to you if you would like to continue to receive our emails.

Please take a look at our website And send us comments if you have any! You may always email me directly at

Thank you!
