Gourmet Food | Wine | Spirits

Let's play with our food.

Cheese & Charcuterie

In our cheese case you'll find over 90 types of domestic & international cut-to-order cheese, salami, charcuterie, pate and sausages. Always ask for samples - we want you to love your cheese as much as we do. 

Oils, Spices, & Vinegars

Just inside the door you'll find oil fustis &  vinegars, salts & spices, and ready to consume salad dressing and marinades. We specialize in unique, small batch producers. Check out the aged balsamic! 

Pork, Beef, Duck, & Lamb

We are proud to partner with Langenfelder Pork, and St. Brigid's Farm to offer locally raised pork & beef. We also partner with D'Artagnan to offer duck and lamb. Special orders are welcome! 

Pastas & Grains

As former Philly residents we're tickled and delighted to offer Tallutos gourmet pasta. We also offer a diverse selection of imported dry pasta and grains. 


We sample every wine carried in our store. Many of our wines are unique to Kent County and the Upper Eastern Shore. We offer a 10% mixed case discount and 20% discount on single label pre-order wines. 


We have a small but diverse collection of spirits and handcrafted mixers. Our team can help you create an excellent cocktail (or mocktail) for your next party or event.  Case discounts available.
