Gourmet Goods in Alexandria

Alexandria has a thriving gourmet scene for those who love to cook, and those who want to learn. La Cuisine is one of the best established cooks' resources in the country, beloved by professionals and would-be professionals alike with olive oils, cookware and recipe books fit for any chef.

The freshest ingredients can be found at the city's farmers markets, made even better with spices from the Spice & Tea Exchange and oils and vinegars from Olio Tasting Room. La Fromagerie brings a French accent to its cheeses and charcuterie, while Del Ray's Cheesetique is nationally renowned for its vast selection of-what else?-cheese. Decadent cupcakes form towers in the windows at Lavender Moon, and artisanal chocolates from Artfully Gifts & Chocolate are always at hand.
