These days, there is a lot of conversation about buying locally and supporting businesses in your community. In food circles in particular, there is lots of encouragement to buy from local artisans. In our experience here at The Benton Boutique, many people understand the benefits of supporting local artisans, but they aren’t sure how to get started. We are here to give you the good news that it’s easier than you think.
It’s easy to assume supporting local artisans requires great effort—you might think you have to go to a local farmer or visit a local beekeeper directly. Fortunately, this is not the case. While many artisans do sell their goods directly at farmers markets and online, many also sell their products through intermediaries, meaning you can find them in stores near you.
Our boutique is one such intermediary. We partner with a wide range of local artisans to offer you the very best of what is grown and produced here in Louisiana. At our store, you can find a vast selection of artisanal products, such as jams, honeys, sauces, coffee, and many other gourmet foods. In addition, we also partner with local designers, artists, and jewelers to offer a range of high-quality, handmade products. If you are looking for artwork, home décor, unique jewelry, or gift items, we encourage you to stop by our shop to view our selection for yourself. Each purchase is a chance to support local artisans in this community, and we are confident you will be more than satisfied with your items.
