Locavore gift basket help?

mythflora | Jan 4, 201506:20 PM     3

Some friends just moved to NYC, and I'd like to assemble a gift basket for them, but something with personality (and preferably local, to celebrate their new digs).

I need fresh bread, candles, salt, and something sweet. Finding all four in one place has proven challenging, and I'm wondering if I should just call up a local market in their area (one in Stuyvesant Town / East Village and one in Brooklyn near Clinton Hill), but don't know where to find quality stuff.

I've been looking online, and here's the best I've found. What am I missing? Any locals know of a grocery with good ingredients that would deliver, particularly in Stuyvesant Town? Most of my search results are in Brooklyn.

New York Mouth: mouth.com
Court Street Grocers: http://courtstreetgrocers.com/
Good Eggs: www.goodeggs.com
By Brooklyn: shop.bybrooklyn.com/
Depanneur: depanneurbklyn.com
Choice Market: choicebrooklyn.com
Brooklyn Larder: bklynlarder.com/
Peck's: peckshomemade.com/
Brooklyn Victory Garden: brooklynvictorygarden.com/

Hopefully the results of this search will also be useful to people looking to assemble gift baskets for other occasions!
