"We want to indulge our customers," says Valerie Gordon, who co-owns the store with partner Stan Weightman Jr. Inspired by the farmers markets of Los Angeles, Gordon will be sampling products such as white fig and Fuji apple jam, mini market cakes, along with paired Gorgonzola cheese and prosciutto.
