By local accounts, this is the best place to prep for a picnic, though there are a few tables should you prefer to hang around. The owner's obsession with cheese is on display along the wall behind the counter. Stacks of cheeses from as near as down the road and as far as Holland, France, Spain, and Italy line the shelves. Organic is big here; organic breads, fruits and juices, free-range eggs, and the coffee is locally roasted Organic Lala. The market also sells local
and imported salami, dips, olives, and an enormous array of chutneys, chocolates, and locally made macadamia nut products.
