Sometimes I get so caught up in the world of wine and spirits that some great foodie events pass me by, but to my great pleasure I recently heard about Artizone. Having just celebrated their launch, Artizone aims to bring artisan products created, raised, farmed, crafted and imported by some of our favorite Dallas artisinal food shops (Spiceman 1410, Scardello’s, La Duni) to you in the comfort of your own home.
Though I personally love going into Spicer’s to see what he has special that day (especially when it is truffles); now I have the opportunity to do that online. And, while I am buying my fresh greens and lobster mushrooms from Spicer, I can buy Rogue Creamery Caveman Bluefrom Scardello’s, a tenderloin from VonGeertsem Butcher Shoppe, Texas Olive Ranch Olive Oil from Flavors From Afar, Cuatro Leches cake from La Duni and fresh jam from JJ&B.
All will be gathered and delivered to your door for a small delivery fee. I did some research and it looks like the delivery charge stays pretty constant whether you buy from one store or all the stores. You will have a handful of options on delivery time/date as well, especially since they want you to be at home to receive the delivery. (Cuatro Leches cake doesn’t need to sit out on a porch…both for melting issues and hungry neighbors.) And they are just delivering to a handful of Dallas zip codes for now, but that will likely grow as they do. Though still young, the concept is great, and their partners are top notch. Certainly something if you want to support our local Dallas businesses selling local products, but don’t have time to run all over town.
