Available by the shovelful (next to the popcorn kernels, oats, and other dry grains). The same granola that's been such a big hit since day one at the cafe. "Our granola was really the impetus for the bulk bins at the market. Everybody wants to take it home."

For those who have graduated from Lip Smackers, these organic, all-natural balms made by a Food & Wine editor and her partner are awesome. I'm a big fan of the Old Fashioned (mmm, bourbony, citrusy lips).

From the Hudson Valley, this small-batch ice creamery has a dedicated following but it's not that easy to find around town. Iris Take Away is scooping it out by the cup and cone.
