How could a store called The Locavore not appeal to Mohawk Valley Girl? Naturally I love the place! Steven had a gift certificate he won a the Little Falls Cheese Festival Fundraiser (just to give the Cheese Fest another plug). He said I could spend it for my birthday present. Yay! A couple of weeks ago, I did just that.
The shop is small but full of stuff, and we took our time browsing. We did not need honey, but I made a mental note that this is a good place to get the local stuff. I also passed on some of the yummy-looking snack food. Must watch my calorie intake! Yes, I’m sure some of them were not too high in calories; I save even more calories by not eating them at all.
We enjoyed a cup of delicious coffee while we shopped. The owner roasts and grinds his own beans. Yum! He offers several fancy coffees as well, hot and iced. I have enjoyed different hot ones on other occasions, but I have not yet been in the mood for ice when I’ve been there.
I looked a long time at the artisan soaps before selecting The Gardener’s Hand and Calendula & Chamomile Shampoo. Then I found a long-sleeved t-shirt that I loved. My final choice was a canvas shopping bag with the Locavore logo.
A variety of local foods is also available: meat, cheese, pickles, eggs, and more. There is a nice table where you can sit and sip your drink. An outdoor table is available, weather permitting. I suppose it may be a while before we can take advantage of that.
The Locavore is located at 159 E. Main St., Frankfort, NY. You can Like them on Facebook.
