Canyon Gourmet was originally a wine and cheese shop, but our vision was always to establish a place that would provide customers a local resource for the preparation of complete, wholesome meals. That meant fresh, seasonal fruit, vegetables, and proteins. We now curate the best from the farmer’s market, and have the ability to call in daily deliveries of fish, meat, and poultry. And while modest in size, our wine department has become one of LA’s best, due largely to the extraordinary talent and growing reputation of our buyer, Elaina. We know most customers by name because we live here, and take deep personal satisfaction in sharing this important resource with the village we love.
