Featured CT NOFA Business Members ~ February 2016

Walter Stewart's Market is an independent, family-owned grocery store in New Canaan that goes the extra mile to source local, artisan and sustainable food for the growing number of consumers who want to eat this way. CT Grown fruits and vegetables are featured year round along with Millstone Farm eggs, Arethusa Farm milk and cream, and a delicious selection of farmstead cheeses.

Artisan and specialty foods from local, Non-GMO and organic producers, some quite small, make shopping at Walter Stewart's particularly exciting and rewarding. Whole G bread from New Haven makes a delicious, German-style bread from whole and organic grains; Lulu's Southern Pies from Greenwich are as small batch as they come; and Nutty Bunny ice cream from Westport makes organic, Non-GMO, gluten-free and dairy-free frozen desserts just perfect for vegans and those suffering from food allergies. Walter Stewart's carries Shearwater Coffee Roasters' line of organic and Fair Trade, local-roasted coffees, Maury's Hive Tea, and direct trade, Non-GMO hot chocolate from Cisse Trading.
