Welcome to Lewes Gourmet!
Specialty Foods from Around The World & Del-Mar-Va Too!
Whether you’re a professional chef, a person who likes gourmet food, a visitor wanting to take home a “taste” of Lewes, or simply an Expat that misses the taste of a treat from “home” we have something to tickle your taste buds, offer up the perfect cuppa or set the perfect table. At Lewes Gourmet our friendly and welcoming atmosphere makes shopping for a special food and table top item as pleasurable as consuming and using it. If you don’t see what you are looking for—just ask and we’ll see if we can get it for you.
A Plastic–Bag, Wrap and Straw Free & Sustainable Lewes
Lewes Gourmet strives for a plastic free Lewes and Cape Henlopen Region. To this end we offer for purchase a number of different reusable shopping bags and are particularly excited to have Blu-bags which support Ocean Conservancy, are easily storable, hold 50 pounds and make great gifts. In addition, we also offer the Lewes Bag created by students at the University of Delaware’s College of Earth, Ocean and Environment as part of Lewes’ Businesses for Better Bags initiative. The bags are made from recycled bottles and feature a silhouette of Delaware and Lewes’ location highlighted by a horseshoe crab symbol.
We will ask you if you are able to forgo a single use bag, or if we might combine your purchases within another that you are carrying.
In addition, we carry a large selection of Swedish dish cloths, reusable straws, Bee’s Wrap, Food Huggers, Food Stashers, Reusable Produce Bags and Litter-less Lunch items that are sustainable, ethically sourced and more friendly to our environment.
Our cutting & cheese boards, kitchen tools, re-usable eating & cooking ware are made with bamboo—which is considered to be the most sustainable and environmentally-friendly “wood” product used in manufacturing of products for the home and table.
Lewes Gourmet and our sister store next door, PUZZLES, decided to take their environmental engagement one step further by becoming a member of 1% for the Planet. This means we pledge 1% of our sales to environmental non-profits committed to creating a healthy planet.
