Honeybee Kitchen and Market is dedicated to promoting and preserving our local farmland and farms. Since its opening in May of 2010 as the DE Local Food Exchange over 100 local farmers and producers have steadily been added to the stores vendor list. By joining us in this mission and buying local, you are rewarded with the highest quality and freshest food available.
Most of our inventory and ingredients are sourced within one hour’s drive from our store. Nearly all products are organically grown and all dairy and meats are grass fed, pastured or free range. We also offer many vegan grocery items.
Our menu is a listing of our most popular and readily available items. Many additional seasonal items are available at all times. Some items listed may be found in our grab-and-go freezer section.
Our head chef, Lisa, has dedicated her life to making food that nourishes people and makes them happy. Lisa is an artist who sees food as her art supplies and is able to use our local, seasonal food to come up with delicious meals. Lisa trained at the Culinary Institute of America, has been crafting amazing dishes for 40 years, and is sought after in New York. Lisa believes in creating dishes that reduce the amount of food waste created by Honeybee and embodies all of Honeybee's values. We are so thrilled to have her on our team.
When you shop at Honeybee your food dollars go back into the local economy where they will do the most good and where they will help to provide food security for our area for generations to come.
Our market is fully stocked year round with seasonal, local, organically grown items including produce, dairy, meats, canned goods, frozen foods, cleaners, and a full line of medicinal and culinary bulk herbs, spices and teas.
Many of our store items are sold in bulk so feel free to bring your own containers to save money and reduce your packaging use. You’ll notice our packaging is also thoughtfully chosen to lessen our impact on our planet.
