As more national grocery chains with locations based in Dayton, Ohio, unveil a delivery service as a part of their online grocery shopping experiences, locally owned and operated Dorothy Lane Market delivers, literally, adding delivery as an option to DLM Drive-Up earlier this month.
In February, the Dayton-based specialty grocery store announced DLM Drive-up, a revamp of its existing online grocery shopping service featuring a rebrand, new convenient location with a storefront for curbside pick-up, and enhanced website. “Earlier this year, our goal was to improve the overall experience of our online grocery shopping service. Now, we’re ready to move forward by enhancing the convenience factor even more,” says Patrick Arnold, DLM’s IT Director who oversees this segment of the business.
Delivery of groceries ordered via www.DLMDriveUp.com will be available to the neighborhoods surrounding the three DLM locations to the following zip codes: 45066, 45409, 45419, 45429, 45440, 45458, and 45459. “Right now, we want to focus on the areas nearby our stores and then expand from there,” says Sarah Linville, DLM Drive-Up manager. “With the success of our curbside pick-up, we think this is just an additional way DLM Drive-Up can make people’s lives easier, whether they are crunched for time or are unable to get out of the house for whatever reason.”
All grocery orders placed via www.DLMDriveUp.com will be shopped from the DLM Washington Square location for both the curbside and delivery options. Although curbside pick-up is offered seven days a week, delivery will be available Monday through Friday between the hours of 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. There is a $5.99 Shoppers Fee applied to every order placed via www.DLMDriveUp.com. For delivery, an additional $9.99 will be applied.
Are you ready to start eating healthier, but just don’t know where or how to begin? We see it every day in action—shoppers walking through the store with their cell phone in hand trying to make sense of healthy eating resources. With the often confusing information given on calories, fat, and sugar, it can be mind-numbing.
That’s why Lori Kelch, a nutrition and wellness educator with more than 20 years of experience, will be teaming up with DLM to give free group Eat Healthy Tours once a month at each DLM location. Lori’s perspective is not that of a physician and should never be seen as something to replace those professional recommendations. But she can help you make sense of your nutrition goals, whatever they may be, by walking you through how to better understand labels and how to identify the right foods throughout the store that align with your goals. She’ll open your eyes to a new way of thinking about shopping so that you can put your plans into action.
DLM Springboro • Saturday, April 1 • 10-11 a.m.
DLM Oakwood • Saturday, April 22 • 10-11 a.m.
DLM Washington Square • Saturday, April 29 • 10-11 a.m.
You can sign up for a tour by using this online form.
On Thursday, April 21st, from 7-9pm you’ll have the chance experience what it’s like to stroll down a European street of bakery and café-lined picturesque street in Paris stopping to sample a bit of this and a bit of that at your leisure. While not quite as elaborate as the DLM fall food show, there’s no doubt that the chefs put forward their creative best to offer you all the tastes you’d find in a classic European pâtisserie.
An array of colorful works of arts you’ll find tarts
Snag your tickets early; the event sells out every year! You’ll more than get your money’s worth for your $50 ticket, which you can order at any DLM Guest Services counter the in stores or online. www.DorothyLane.com/
For the second year in a row, Dorothy Lane Market’s Killer Brownie® has secured a spot in the final four in a national food bracket, demonstrating that it’s a chocolatey, caramel-infused force to be reckoned with.
Goldbely hosts Munch Madness (#MunchMadness), which pits regional food favorites from across the country against one another. The contenders range from Chicago’s famed Vienna Beef Hot Dog and Brooklyn’s unforgettable Momofuku Milk Bar to Dayton’s treasured Killer Brownie®. Voting opened to the public and started on March 16 with 64 competitors. Now, it’s down to the final four, including the Killer Brownie®. “Being recognized as a member of the final four is such an honor because we’re up against some of America’s favorite restaurants and bakeries. It gives voters a chance to decide who is truly the best of the best,” says Sarah Linville, shopDLM.com manager.
Linville and her team oversee the division of Dorothy Lane Market that ships DLM favorites to all 50 states, and the Killer Brownie® is a top-seller. “We get so many calls from customers all across America that say the Killer Brownie® reminds them of a place that so many have called home. Plus, all the layers of chocolate and caramel definitely seem to make it a favorite,” Linville says.
To add to the Killer Brownie® excitement, Dorothy Lane Market will be offering a special promotion on the Killer Brownie® in stores: If someone votes for the Killer Brownie® online they just have to walk up to the Bakery counter at any of the three Dorothy Lane Market stores and tell an associate that they voted. They’ll then get a coupon for $1 off any Killer Brownie® flavor (yes, there are multiple flavors).
Voting is conducted at https://www.goldbely.com/munch-madness

The hot sauce that took the Dayton area by storm, HouseMade Sriracha is coming back…
And HouseMade Sauces has given Food Adventures exclusive scoop on this one. Maybe because we are cool, or maybe because our own Chef House is the owner and proprietor of the fiercely popular “HouseMade Sriracha Sauce.” At any rate you can call us the “Pepper-azzi” for this one, because we have the insight on how Thai Chile peppers have affected this Miami Valley favorite sauce.
HERE’S THE SKINNY:
— HouseMade Sriracha has sold out in stores all over the state, and due to a shortage of imported Thai Chile Peppers, HouseMade has been unable to refill the demand for the sauce for months.
— In the meantime, they developed a Peachy Sriracha using habeneros and a Green Sriracha, using Serrano peppers. While these sauces gained cult followings, people have still yearned for that flagship sauce, the red sauce, the original “HouseMade Sriracha.”
— Why the pepper shortage? The Mediterranean fly! Yes, an insect caused an import restriction meaning no produce from the Dominican Republic was allowed shipped to the USA. This was the first time since 1989 that the United States has banned produce from that country. The last ban lasted 18 months. This fly attacks our citrus crops. It is divesting here.
But no fear hot sauce addicts.. your cravings will soon be answered, and this sauce will be flying off the shelves !

JACLYN SCANLAN aka “HUNGRY JAX”:
LEEANNE HOUSE aka “CHEF HOUSE”:
Chef House or “The Sriracha Mamma” is all about the heat. Lover of all things spicy she is constantly in the kitchen coming up with fun new ways to whip up veggies and add a little spice. She is a Dayton native, with lifelong experience in the restaurant industry, working with some of the best chefs in the Miami Valley. She loves to keep it local especially in the summer when beautiful produce is plentiful. She is a true foodie who knows we have a lot to offer in Ohio! LeeAnne is also the owner of Housemade Sauces which specializes in a locally made Sriracha Sauce and a Hot Honey Sriracha Sauce, which have won national awards. Chef House is also the owner of the new “Bad Dog” Hot Dog Cart which features local dogs, local toppings and local buns! She is also involved in putting on the “Night Market” events at the Yellow Cab Building. She is definitely a foodie fixture around town, and an up and coming Chef.
STEVE MILANO aka “THE BIG RAGU”:
A lifelong Dayton resident, his early food influence was in his mom’s kitchen and his dad’s grill. Other incredible food memories are his grandparents’ Italian and German/Scottish cooking. Ragu’s love of food is only matched by his love of sports, travel, karaoke and just needing to be held. An attention seeking missile, Ragu’s favorite foods include Seafood, Italian Food, and Chinese/Japanese cuisine. Other hobbies include overeating and a slight attraction to deep fried menu items. Whether a locally owned business, fine dining, a dive, buffets, fast foods and even a few chain favorites, he enjoys visiting them all with a “no rules” attitude. You can usually recognize him at festivals by the sweaty guy with the food stain on his shirt. Emotionally eating his way through life with the Crew, they leave no plate unturned. Most recently, his recipes have been featured in the monthly Foremost Seafood Newsletter. This “foodie in his forties” is proud to be involved in dozens of local charity committees.
