The Local Palate Marketplace caters to foodies and home cooks through its endless selection of gourmet snacks, specialty ingredients, and Southern delicacies sourced from artisan makers throughout the South. But for the treats, we can’t get enough of, check out the shop’s Southern desserts and sweets. From shelf-stable goodies to satisfy your sweet tooth to dishes for a full dessert course, gourmet confections from these Southern bakers, snack-makers, and gourmands will cover any sugar fix.
Start your day on a sweet note with a drizzle of bourbon-infused maple syrup over pancakes or smear of fresh-fruit jam on toast. Brighten any packed lunch with chocolate-covered nut clusters or a caramel-filled brownie. Satisfy your 3 pm sugar craving with a piece of Texas-made dark chocolate. Small-batch syrups and cordials add a dose of excitement to cocktail hour with flavors like sweet mint and sugar-and-spice. And dinner isn’t complete until dessert appears—chess pie, perhaps?
The sweets and Southern desserts on the Local Palate Marketplace make thoughtful and delicious gifts for any snack-lover in your life with a sweet tooth. Though, we won’t blame anyone looking to round out their own stash.
Beyond Southern Desserts and Sweets on Marketplace
While these artisanal syrups, cookies, toffees, and candied nuts may be enough for some people to live on, the Local Palate Marketplace fills your kitchen beyond sweets. Stock your pantry with Lowcountry rice and grits, Georgia peanuts, Southern pickled vegetables, or Louisiana gumbo. Use Nashville-made cordials and mixers or Kentucky bitters to build out your bar cart. If you’re planning to hit the road, crunchy snack mixes, kettle chips, and small-batch roasted coffees keep you fueled for miles.
