Locavore gift basket help?

mythflora | Jan 4, 201506:20 PM

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:
Court Street Grocers:
Good Eggs:
By Brooklyn:
Choice Market:
Brooklyn Larder:
Brooklyn Victory Garden:

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