California Cabinet: 6 Local Products to Add to Your Summer Stockpile

The owners of The Epicurean Trader in San Francisco share their favorite locally crafted goods.

On the heels of their successful gourmet mercantile, The Epicurean Trader in the Bernal Heights neighborhood of San Francisco, Holly and Mat Pond recently debuted a second outpost in the highly trafficked Marina District. Packed from shelf to basket with exciting edibles and boutique beverages, many are made right here in the Golden State by a collection of savvy entrepreneurs. We asked them to pick a handful of their favorite items, all curated from right here in California.

We have been carrying the awesome whiskeys by founders Tim and Clint since opening. They are local, super innovative, and making wonderful whiskeys from craft beer.
