We have enjoyed the grain edge bread from BackerBack Bakery and were disappointed when they closed suddenly with no indication of reopening.

Caroline Ghinassi of Newcastle was looking for a place to purchase culinary lavender. Victoria Gildea of Davis shares: “Don’t know if all Nugget Markets are the same. The Davis Nugget on East Covell carries the culinary lavender that Caroline Ghinassi was looking for. This is not in the spice aisle. It is in the soup, pasta, sauce, rice, dried bean aisle.
