We also stock a wide range of other delicious foodstuffs, including: charcuterie, produce, baked goods, prepared foods, coffee, tea, chocolates, bread, sweets, honey, preserves, wine, beer, olive oil, vinegar and other pantry staples.

We offer a dynamic work environment that both challenges and rewards those who have the necessary skills and passion to make the team. We strive to hire people who have a deep knowledge of and an equally great passion for quality food. We like to work with creative people who have a decidedly old-world work ethic.
