Tastings and Events

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.

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.
