Tremont General Store

Mr. H and I were in Tremont on Sunday afternoon, because, hello, that weather called for some ice cream! We headed to Tremont Scoops for our first ice cream of the season, and it really hit the spot.

We had found a parking spot right in front of the newly opened Tremont General Store on Professor Avenue. Of course, that meant that I just had to pop in there.
The quaint store focuses on local goods, and is selling gardening supplies, products made by local vendors, and even some produce, dairy, and meats.

Immediately, I saw local brands that I'm familiar with. Like Randy's Pickles...
...and Pope's Kitchen. I'm always a fan of any business that stocks up on these household favorites.
The Tremont General Store also has their own line of products, including these jams.
A few produce items were available, like garlic, onions, and potatoes. 
Finally, there were coolers packed with local dairy items, pasta, and meats. 
Other items like chocolates, soaps, coffee, dog food, Dante pasta sauce, sodas, books, bird feeders, and more make this small shop well-rounded. It would be tough to make this a one-stop shop for all of your needs, but they've got some great basics, and I love their focus on highlighting local producers. For us, it's important to know where our goods are coming from, and I prefer to support local businesses. I also suggest stopping in here when you're looking to create a Cleveland-themed gift basket, which I seem to do often. 

I'll cross my fingers for their success, because I think it's a welcomed addition to Tremont.
