We regularly welcome artisan producers to our store to sample out their delicious goodies – from cheese, to ice cream, to beer, to wine, to tea – and more! We also periodically host cookbook signings. And, Patti of On the Edge Knife Sharpening joins us generally once per month to tune-up folks’ knives.
A schedule of these events is below, and reservations are not necessary. If you are interested in events at our Boston store, please view the South End Tastings and Events page.
Please note that during wine tastings, customers are welcome to a 15% discount on cases of featured wines. For any events involving tastings of beer or wine, we validate legal age of our participants.

MEM Tea Tasting: Gaba Baked Oolong – Saturday, May 23rd, 12-3 pm
The Boston area is blessed with the fabulous local tea importer MEM Tea. We’ve long loved their tea blends, and now we’re pleased to introduce a new, rotating program where we bring in some of their more unique, single origin tea offerings. Swing by the shop on Saturday May 23rd from 2-4pm for a chance to try our inaugural variety– Gaba Baked Oolong. Though not from Japan, this specially processed Taiwanese tea offers remarkable notes of plum jam and fresh baked bread (and you have to taste it to believe it!).
Knife Sharpening – Sunday, June 21, 11 am - 2 pm
Every third Sunday of the month, Patti from On the Edge Knife Sharpening pulls up in her van to sharpen your dullest knives. This is not your typical knife sharpening operation – Patti works carefully by hand with each knife from your smallest paring knife to your 18″ chef’s knife (even scissors!).
Beer Tasting: Pretty Things – Saturday, June 27, 1 - 3pm
From their original Jack d’Or to their more than ten other varieties released throughout the year, Pretty Things Beer satisfies a multitude of our beer desires.
