We think the word "gourmet" can be misleading. What really makes a product "gourmet?" Our market offers a broad selection of products that can be described as high quality, healthy, organic, wholesome, hand-crafted and artisan. We like to think of Mill Valley Market as offering a nice selection of "finer foods." We strive to seek out the unusual, the unique, the hard-to-find, the very best. It that's "gourmet," then yes indeed, we are "gourmet."
Clearly, others share our feeling about the uniqueness of Mill Valley Market as quoted from The Diners Club Magazine:
“A common subject at lunch is where to go for dinner, and I was shown the Mill Valley Market with the reverence that a Parisian would display in presenting the Louvre. This is by no means your standard supermarket serving a town of 15,000 people. It would do justice to a city the size of Philadelphia. Glancing casually at the shelf of honey, for example, I saw killer bee honey, prickly pear cactus honey, Kona coffee honey, wild country buckwheat honey, New Zealand honey and 30 or 40 other kinds and flavors I would not have believed if I hadn't seen them...I admire the MVM enormously and, if I lived in Marin, I would drop in every day. ”
