Founded by renowned chef Frank McClelland, an early advocate of farm-to-table dining in New England, his eponymous market stocks pickles, sauces, charcuterie, and other treats, with a focus on local purveyors and minimally processed ingredients. Peruse the curated selection of wine to find the perfect complement to your food, and if browsing gets your mouth watering, circle around to the café counter and pick up a giant snickerdoodle or a burger topped with crispy onions and hot sauce mayo to tide you over.
