Cal Mart, in Calistoga, is a family-owned grocery store for more than fifty years, we are also a purveyor of local and international fine wines, a gourmet cheesemonger, a source for fabulous craft beers, and the home of a rocking delicatessen! You could say we’ve built a reputation for showcasing specialty grocery items from around the world!
And, as if that were not enough to put us in a category of “much more than a grocery store,” we offer a wide and varied selection of specialty food items.
By “specialty,” we mean unique, diverse, hard-to-find, and one-of-a-kind.
There’s More to Groceries than Milk, Bread, and Cheese
One of the great things about living and working in Napa Valley and the Napa wine country is the wines, of course, and the bountiful variety of local produce and food items that can be found here.
At Cal Mart, we make it a point to represent our friends and neighbors in Napa Valley who produce world-class wines, unique craft beers, and delicious, organic produce. In addition, there are local creameries and dairies that serve as purveyors of unique cheeses and other delectable products.
And, of course, we have our bakeries and pâtisseries.
But what makes shopping at Cal Mart an adventure for many is our superb selection of specialty food items and unique grocery goods found in our Specialty Foods department.
At Cal Mart, we offer Specialty Food items that range from dairy-free products, vegan foods, organic and all-natural selection, and many other high-end specialty items. We take great care in hand-selecting our specialty food products from several local products from producers throughout both Napa and Sonoma Counties and many countries from across the globe, including England, Germany, Italy, and France.
Seven Specialty Grocery Items You Will Want to Try from Cal Mart
While we would love to give a comprehensive catalog of every product and specialty food item we stock, time and space doesn’t allow for such a luxury.
However, we have scoured our shelves and selected seven various specialty food products that we sure will please your palate while enhancing your next meal or get-together with family or friends.
Stonewall Kitchen from Maine
This award-winning specialty food creator began in 1991 at a farmers’ market in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. They have since become one of Maine’s most prominent tourist attractions. At Cal Mart, we bring a bit of Maine and Stonewall Kitchen to you with their jams, jellies, and marmalades.
Hurley Farms is a small family-owned, five-acre farm and vineyard located in the Napa Valley. They began almost 15 years ago and are today considered one of the finest purveyors of jams, jellies, sauces, and wine jellies in Napa Valley.
Terrapin Ridge Farms
Creating spectacular gourmet sauces, spreads, dips, mixes, and – of course – jams and jellies from Clearwater, Florida, this specialty food provider rocks. Their tantalizing products have won awards and numerous accolades and media attention since 2010.
Monaco Truffle Co.
We love their spreads, honey, and salt, imported from Italy. This local favorite says it best themselves,
“Based in Napa Valley, Monaco Truffle Co. is bringing together the best of both worlds – European taste & California cool. Offering a selection of premium truffle products, pasta, and oils made by artisan Italian producers. Think of it as an Italian gateway under the palm trees.”
Sutter Buttes Olive Oil Company
Featuring olive oils and vinegars from Yuba City, Sutter Buttes Olive Oil Company came to be in 2009 and earned a reputation for its innovative handcrafted gourmet products. We particularly like their selections of flavored olive oils, dipping oils, and balsamic vinegars.
Sweet, aromatic, and deliciously indulgent always has a place in a specialty foods list. And we are proud to offer selections from these purveyors of fine chocolates:
- Dick Taylor Craft Chocolate – Small batch bean to bar craft chocolate makers specializing in single-origin two-ingredient chocolate, based in Eureka, California.
- Woodhouse Chocolate – A family-run Belgian-style chocolate shop located in Saint Helena, in the heart of the Napa Valley.
- Volo Chocolate – Founded in 2016 by husband-and-wife pioneering farm-to-table chefs, Volo Chocolate makes Mexican-style, flavored bean-to-bar craft chocolate from Windsor, California.
