What's New?


OH JOY!  Yes, it is THAT time already. Start Holiday Shopping now while our selection is over the top.

LARK Cookies are BACK!
( As you may know -sadly, Queen City  Cookies halted production of the beloved elephant cookies but happily, LARK is back to pick up the pieces)


LARK offers the same rich buttery bites you fell in love with: Salted Rosemary, Dark Chocolate Chipotle, and adds even more joy with Burnt Sugar Fennel with its toffee like bits, and Mighty Ginger with it's white pepper bite! We sell those 4 in the single flavor boxes for $7 each.

The holiday trio pictured below has 3 sleeves of mini cookies in Burnt Sugar Fennel, Salted Rosemary and the Espresso Chocolate Chip. $8 and all ribboned up for you!

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. Really. Come by for a taste.

Zoe's Chocolates are back in and dressing up the place. Silky and creamy, they practically melt when you look at them: Hazelnut, Almond, Espresso swirl, Pretzel Bar(dark and milk) and Raw Bar(cacao nibs on dark chocolate). Beautiful simple packaging. Sexy stuff. $8.50 to go around the world with delight.


Officially Ridiculous. Locally made Cabernet Wine Jelly(more like a demi-glace). wonderful as a finish on roasted meats, on goat cheese, drizzled on a dark chocolate flourless torte or vanilla gelato...We also have Raspberry Roses Jam, Blueberry Lavender, and other surprising combos from Gables Delight.

Taza Eggnogg Stoneground Chocolates are back for the season. We also have the new Taza bars in Peppermint Stick, Toffee-Almond-Sea Salt, Sea Salt Almond, and Cacao Nib.

In addition to our great food finds, we've added a pop-up boutique- The 3-Minute Egg- with a focus on local artisans and recycled style.

Using our editorial eye, we now showcase a constantly revolving collection of unique

jewelry from local artists, leather goods, vintage, new and recycled clothing and accessories,

hand-made cards, exclusive t-shirts, ceramics and more cool stuff.

Of course still have our culinary treats, tools, and one-of-a-kind finds

that made you love us--but you will love us even more now! Great for gifts!
