Also listed under "shops" because it's way more than just a wine and food shop. It's the place to go to stock your picnic basket. And it's got classes and a free weekly beer, wine and spirits tasting on Saturdays so it's a food place, a shop and a sightseeing place all in one.

It's not your grandmother's antique store. It's a delightful store. Be ready to spend time at Hunt and Gather. Note - it's packed with goodies, not ADA accessible. And definitely not for the faint of heart with claustrophobia. It's about 1 miles away so it's walkable but you'll want to drive to be able to bring back all your goodies.

Way way more than just a wine and spirit place. Great artisanal food and cheese shop. You can pick up some wine, a few sandwiches and some dessert for a picnic in the park. They have cooking classes and a weekly free beer, wine and spirits tasting every Saturday. 5 blocks away so you can hop, skip or jump there.
