Sharing quality ingredients we source from our family of purveyors.

For nearly 20 years, Food Dance has been committed to building a thriving and sustainable local food system. We support artisans who practice craft food processes that have been around for generations—growing, raising, preserving, curing, aging, pickling, butchering and more. For Food Dance, it's about the connection with the people and places their food comes from—authentic people and authentic food that's true to its source. Our on-site market offers amazing ingredients sourced from our family of purveyors.

We are very excited to offer sustainable, humanely raised meats such as housemade sausages, cured meats, fresh ground beef, beef cuts, pork cuts and more from our very own little butcher shop... our breads and savory baked goods, along with the same great pastries from our talented bakers. In addition we are offering more of our prized ingredients: olive oil, vinegars, condiments, fresh ground spices and pastas.

  • Food Dance Artisan Bread

    Food Dance Artisan Bread

    Food Dance American Artisan Breads Every loaf is made by hand in our own bakery.

    What goes into a loaf? Time, love and great ingredients. Beyond the love and care of our bakers... It’s very looooooong rising time (18-24 hours) to allow the great flavor and a great crumb to develop. Combine that with naturally fermented sourdough starters, some yeast in the Brioche and 4-Grain, unbleached spring patent flour, whole wheat berries, whole oats, local potatoes, free range eggs, fresh Wisconsin Grassland unsalted butter, Michigan honey, toasted caraway seeds, fresh rosemary, sea salt, and extra virgin olive oil and you’re rewarded with a great loaf!

  • Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams

    Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams

    We are thrilled to offer such great ice creams exclusively in this area.

    Jeni Britton Bauer became inspired to make artisan ice creams while working at a French patisserie. Drawing on the practices of a traditional pastry kitchen, Jeni created her own techniques to make American ice creams that are less sweet and more flavorful. Each batch of Jeni's ice creams is carefully tended to; each flavor artfully achieved with fresh ingredients found in the Ohio countryside as well as responsibly-raised exotics from around the world. All of Jeni's ice creams, sauces, pralines and marshmallows are handcrafted in Jeni's production kitchen in Columbus, Ohio. At Jeni's they work hard to bring us the best seasonal ingredients, so check in often for the flavors we have in our freezer! Find more about Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams or on find them on Facebook.

  • Food Dance Coffees

    Food Dance Coffees

    Food Dance's fair trade dark roast coffee blend, roasted by Waterstreet Coffee Joint

    HOUSE BLEND

    Our house blend has a light, creamy body with a smooth, bittersweet flavor and an almost imperceptible acidity. A blend of Fair Trade Certified and Certified Organic beans from South and Central America, it is surprisingly mild for a dark roast.

    DECAF

    Our decaffeinated coffee is medium-bodied with a mild acidity and roasty, bittersweet flavor. If you love dark coffee but could do without the caffeine, this brew is for you; but don't be afraid to serve it to friends who prefer a lighter roast- the surprising smoothness of this brew gives it a universal appeal.
