Delighting our clients by treating them, our ingredients and our world with love and respect.

Dear Friends and Fans,

The retail store is now closed. In our last weeks together, our small yet mighty team worked harder than ever to keep “Delighting our clients by treating them, our ingredients and our world with love and respect.” There were days we didn’t think we could do it, but somehow found the gumption to keep on keepin’ on (thanks to so many of you!), completed our orders, kept our retail shelves stocked, and lived to tell the tale.

With continued support (and some crazy huge “stocking up” orders!) from our friends and fans, family and community, clients, landlady and even the bank (yes, the bank!), we were able to continue supporting our local farmers and artisanal producers right up until the end of January, and made almost enough money to pay our suppliers and remaining staff member (the lovely, über talented, and always cheerful no-matter-how-tough-things-got Becca). Thank you all! (read more...)
