New buttery goodness from Lark Cookies. LadyBirds, Coconut Butter, Salted Rosemary Shortbread, Olive Scourtins and more!

Gables Delight is locally made jam that wowed us from the first taste. Come in for yours. We have Cabernet Wine Jelly with a caramel consistency-- wonderful as a finish on roasted meats, on goat cheese, drizzled on a dark chocolate flourless torte or gelato...We also have the thick varieties- Raspberry Rose,  Blueberry Lavender, Blackberry Violet, Strawberries and Wine, and other surprising melanges.

Zoe's Chocolates  Dark and super silky topped with whole hazelnuts, cacao nibs, caramelized sunflower and pepita seeds, caramlized almonds or swirled with white chocolate and espresso! Just one bite will create waves of LOVE.

A Gluten Free Cracker that tastes like a cracker? whaaaat?   Yes, we've got 'em. In Salt and Pepper, Mediterranean and Tuscan. Nothing but Almond Meal, Organic Flax, Organic Sesame, Organic seasonings and a few other healthy things. Paleo, Vegan...the whole deal. You can't believe how good these are. For a cracker. Not just for a P/GF/V/nonGMO thingamajig which usually taste like crap. Really. Come try one!
