What pairs perfectly with the arrival of autumn? All things food! Cooking, baking, soup-making, kneading, roasting, simmering, sipping - we love it all! Even the names of autumn recipes are dazzling, like 'Maple-Glazed Cardamom Apple Fritters' from the Half Baked Harvest Super Simple Cookbook by Tieghan Gerard. Seriously? How yummy!


Here in Primrose, we have a bountiful new selection of fall and winter cookbooks, filled with mouth-watering photos and fabulous recipes for chefs and bakers at every skill level. Even if you're not a recipe-follower, these books are bursting with seasonal beauty and inspiring new ideas.


We also have vintage pie plates, rolling pins, and other nostalgic kitchen items. Last but not least, our shelves are stocked with delicious sweet and savory food items, such as local jams, scone mixes, honey, soup mixes, crackers, shortbread cookies, hot chocolate, and a great selection of fine teas from Murchies and Flying Bird Botanicals.
