Did you all know that Breezy Willow opened a farm store in Ellicott City? Amidst all the fanfare of the downtown re-opening, it was somewhat low key, but at least I got some shopping done at a small business without having to hike a mile after finding a parking place. I figure I can get to Old Town any day of the week, without the crowds.
What did I find there?
All sort of goodies. Locally produced, for the most part.
The store, is in the right hand side of the big old house on the corner of St. John’s Lane and Frederick Rd.
Next to Southern States, and across the road from Rita’s Ice.
They had music on Saturday, and Zeke’s was handing out free samples of their coffee. Everyone who stopped by got to take home a free bunch of broccoli.
I didn’t take the camera inside yet. They were still arranging items around the store.
This is a welcome addition for those who are accustomed to buying out at the farm on Saturdays, and who live on the eastern side of the county. They have many more items here. Sun of Italy items are included in the pantry area, to help with menu planning. The meat freezers are self serve so you can pick the size you want.
My friend Nicole has her preserves on sale here. Neat Nick.
I bought a jar of spiced cranberry jam and a fresh scone. Perfect for a Sunday morning breakfast.
And, they have Salazon chocolate. Salazon is made in Carroll County. These are the holiday offerings.
Their sea salt and dark chocolate bars are the best dessert, with a glass of leftover red wine.
We will be getting eggs and meat here during the winter months, unless we are heading out to Lisbon on a Saturday when the store at the farm is open.
Another local small business that deserves our support. Check it out. Open Thursday through Sunday. 10-6.
