I started the day at the West Shore Farmer's Market. Open Friday and Saturday mornings, this market is bustling with activity and full of fresh fruits, veggies, meat and prepared items including pretzels, pizzas, tacos and even dog biscuits.
Next on my list was Macris Chocolates. Although it's not a traditional grocery item, it was a sweet treat that you don't want to miss! The shop has a delicious aroma of chocolate, which can only be trumped by the actual candies themselves.
If you're a tea or coffee drinker, Kauffman's is a hidden gem that should not be ignored. The shop has been in business for over 40 years, and teas, coffees, spices and even hot chocolate are measured out on an antique scale. The old cash register can only total up to $6.00 in sales, so most orders are hand-written. Stay and sample a cup of fresh brewed tea or coffee made in a french press, but leave your phone in your pocket, as there is no WiFi here!
Next door is Fraulie's German Deli. This small space is packed with traditional German canned goods, breads, crackers and deli items. Warm and welcoming, this shop is also adorned with German decorations.
It may not have a Lemoyne zip code, but One Good Woman is less than a mile's drive and features fine teas, coffees, kitchen accessories and gadgets and a great selection of gift items. My favorite purchase of the day was Wine-Oh! tea, which is rumored to reflect the tastes of Merlot.
