As reported by Gut Check, Larder & Cupboard (7310 Manchester Road; 314-300-8995) opened its doors at the corner of Manchester and Marshall avenues in early November. The specialty food shop in downtown Maplewood comes from Kakao's Brian Pelletier and co-owner Cindy Higgerson, and it stocks small-batch purveyors from locally and abroad. Hand-picked items include the likes of Salume Beddu, Marcoot Jersey Creamery, Baetje Farms and more.
Inside for former T. Rohan Interiors space, visitors will find a variety of products to choose from -- everything from seed oils and sodas to fermented goods, kitchen utensils and bitters kits. With products placed into logoed brown carrying bags, the goods are ready to take home or present as gifts -- a handy tip for the holiday season.
Larder & Cupboard's current hours are Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. For more information, visit the Larder & Cupboard website, or follow it on Facebook.
