Dia's Market 

Family owned and operated, Dia's is a micro-grocer dedicated to meeting your food needs in a unique, healthy way. The husband and wife duo derived the shop's name from their three children's first initials. They treat everyone like a long-lost friend and search the world for the best procured products.

Locally owned, Con' Olio was the city's first premium olive tasting bar. Its try-before-you-buy concept offers complimentary tastings of the finest olive oils and balsamic vinegars. The knowledgeable staff provides expert insight and recipe ideas that are sure to delight your family and friends. Owner Tabatha Conarko frequently travels to Europe, where she has formed relationships with producers who respect tradition while utilizing the best technology. Her trips allow her to find the freshest products at reasonable prices. Specialty oils include dark toasted sesame, roasted walnut, and butternut squash seed. 

Thom's Market 

During a year-long sailing trip, Bill Thom had to hike to a grocery store every time he anchored. That's when he realized the vintage grocery stores from his grandfather's time were gone. That's how Thom's Market was born. It features hundreds of quality products from local food producers as well as a selection of wine from the world's best vineyards. The wines are perfect for cooking or enjoying with dinner. Choices include Lorenza Rose, Giovanni Rosso, and Rancho Sisquoc.
