Every aisle continues to invite culinary discovery from the specialty grocer’s distinctive tastes both near and far, supporting both local neighbors – such as Bee Friend’s Farm fresh jarred honey – and top produce from around the world. Finally, signage throughout the store will clearly designate departments and guide those shopping with dietary restrictions or food allergies; highlight organic and local products; and simply inspire guests to live life deliciously.
