Gourmet Shops & Markets

Shopping is fun, but shopping and eating is even better! Explore the nook-and-cranny shops holding treasures like gourmet olives, olive oils and nuts, baking vanilla, artisan popcorn, kettle chips, trail bars, herbs and spices, and chocolates made by French chocolatiers.

And, gourmet shops aren’t the only ones stocking local goodies. A number of tasting rooms have shelves lined with local products that pair perfectly with their wines. Prepare your taste buds as some of the local cafes even sell house-made condiments and accoutrements. Just try to get those goodies to last you until you get home!
