Owner Tom Walsh delights in identifying the best of everything, from ice cream to meats and cheeses, and presenting it to shoppers in his Andover flagship—what he hopes will be the first in a chain of community-friendly gathering spots/comestible emporiums. The growing array of artisan farm products, craft beer and wine, locally roasted coffee and loose-leaf tea, not to mention a delicious selection of prepared foods, is a testament to his continuing dedication.
