As you make your way through the shop, you'll see walls lined with ingredient jars of all sizes, organized alphabetically and by country of origin. The center of the shop is tastefully loaded with market ingredients, cookbooks, and linens - all telling their own stories depending on the season. Some past favorites have been "Made in Maine", "Vegan Cooking", "International Flavors", and of course, "For the Home Bar". Our team members are gifting pro's, eager to build collections and make recommendations of new combinations and techniques to try.
