A Scavenger Hunt in the Shop
We've got spring fever! And, after this past winter and the polar vortex, we've got it bad! We're dusting off our bikes, getting our picnic baskets ready, finding the frisbees, putting away the woolly mittens (finally!), planting seeds in our gardens, tuning up the grill, chilling bottles of rosé (and drinking them!), and tucking into the delicious goat cheeses that have been arriving on our cheese counter.
Wine Tastings April 2014Our wine tastings are free and open to the public. A few select bottles will be tasted with the importer we buy from. Most of our wines are from smaller producers who use sustainable, organic and biodynamic methods of production to create beautiful wines with character and a true taste of place.
In-Store Tastings & Visits
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.

Formaggio Kitchen Barbecue
Each year as the weather warms up, we roll out our massive Weber grill to finish house smoked meats and a variety of sides to satisfy a long line of die hard fans. Our 2014 season kicked off on Saturday, March 29th at 11am and will continue into October - the final date is still to be determined.
This year, we will have several themed BBQs. Four dates have been confirmed so far but rumor has it that more may be in the works! In addition to our usual 'Q favorites, look for specials based around respective themes on these weekends:
