A sweet pairing just in time for the Holidays

Milk and honey go together like Cathi and Gerry Fournier, the new owners of Milk and Honey Bazaar who’ve spent the last year packaging up a long list of new and wonderful products for the small cheese shop in Four Corners. This year, the couple is celebrating the new and improved success of Milk and Honey, a popular neighborhood stop for all things sweet and savory.

“It’s everything we’ve expected and more,” says Cathi of their recent adventure. After leaving a career in accounting to fulfill their shared dream of being small business owners, Cathi and Gerry are now busy bundling colorful gift packages and platters for happy and hungry customers. “We’ve got back the local base,” she says, and after just a year’s time the locals have something back too: the corner shop they’ve always loved. Milk and Honey now carry over 100 varieties of gourmet cheeses and all the extra bits too; crackers, crisps, cookies, jams, and cutting boards, not to mention fine oils and a generous assortment of local honey.  

An exciting addition to the shop this year is Florida’s native Tupelo Honey, a beautiful and delicate golden honey brought in from the only place in the world where the white Tupelo plant grows in abundance. The honey is rich in vitamins and minerals and its superior flavor makes it a popular favorite for who ever can get their hands on it. This stylish sweetener comes in festive bottles, and makes a fashionable and delicious addition to the table or pantry shelf.

While tempting edibles come from far and wide, the Fournier’s first priority remains vested in supporting businesses right in their neighborhood. They buy from local cheese and dairy farms, represent local artists, and spend quality time meeting specific needs of their customers. They are the modern one-stop mom and pop, where you can shop for fresh dinner ingredients, a party platter, or just a loaf of bread, a carton of milk, and a wedge of cheese. Don’t forget to stop in next time you’re passing through and taste for yourself what’s new at Milk and Honey.
