Rustic French Batard

This wholesome artisan bread is made using the highest quality, pure, simple ingredients -- no artificial colors or flavors; no preservatives or additives. We have sampled many loaves, and it is fantastic! Serve it plain, dip it in olive oil, slater it with butter or use it to make a delicious sandwich. You can't go wrong!

Available two ways:

  • Par-baked:  take it home; bake it in your oven; and you’ll have fresh, hot bread in 5 - 6 minutes

  • Freshly baked and ready to serve:  give us 30-minutes notice and we’ll have it ready for you to pick up.

Gluten Free Options

In February, we ran a trial featuring fresh, gluten-free pasta from RP’s Pasta Company.  The feedback from our customers who prefer gluten-free options has been phenomenal. We now offer two varieties of fettucine (plain and spinach) as well as lasagne sheets.  As demand for gluten-free products continues to grow, we also have added a line of crackers made by Free for All Kitchen.  Gluten-free and non-GMO, Free for All Kitchen crackers are made with cassava flour and five ancient grains. These smaller cut crackers are great for party appetizers, snacks, or part of a full meal.  They complement everything from traditional cheeses and soups to exotic dips and spreads.

Anna Mae’s Smoky Sweet BBQ Sauce

This subtle, yet undeniably smoky flavored sauce boasts of seasoned tomatoes together with onions and spices. It's mysteriously bold baked into Southwest meatloaf or brushed over peppercorn beef tenderloin beneath melted Gorgonzola cheese.

Mt Vikos Feta Cheese

High in the mountains of Thessaly and Macedonia and on the island of Cyprus, sheep and goats feed on local grasses, wild herbs, and flowers. The resulting fresh milk makes Mt Vikos® Cheeses exceptional.  EU Protected Designation of Origin (PDO): PDO as defined by European Union Law, was designed to protect the names, reputation, quality,genuineness, and authenticity of regional foods. The law also protects the ingredients used and processes to make the product. As an example - feta must be made with sheep and/or goats milk from the region and produced using traditional methods, which requires straining without pressure. Mt. Vikos Feta is among the cheeses that are protected by EU Protected Designation of Origin  (PDO).  

MeadowCroft Farm

Based in the Shenandoah Valley, MeadowCroft Farm specializes in heirloom pickles, sauces, relishes, fruit jams, and pepper jellies.  Our initial stock includes spiced peaches, jalapeno mustard sauce, and two varieties of pickle...we’ll be happy to add other MeadowCroft products as there is demand.
