Rothschild Farm Mustards

Blue cheese, honey, and spices are combined to create the savory and sweet Blue Cheese Dijon Mustard. Turn an ordinary burger into an extraordinary one with the unique tang of blue cheese. It is also a wonderful addition to vinaigrettes or served with a Bakery Bavarian pretzel. The Cranberry Pomegranate Mustard is a fruity blend of cranberries, pomegranate, and raspberries, making it a terrific spread for turkey sandwiches, or on cheese and crackers. Both mustards are all natural and gluten free.

DLM Canned Tomatoes

These beautiful tomatoes are from nearby friends who have been growing and canning tomatoes locally since the 1920s.

Seasonings of Salonica

Local entrepreneur Tom Arvan of Franklin developed a line of Mediterranean seasonings from family recipes passed down through the generations by those who lived in Salonica, Greece. They are made with the finest all-natural ingredients and can be used on vegetables, meats, poultry, and seafood. Add some “opa!” (Greek word used to describe a jubilant emotion) to ordinary foods.

Tina's Sweet Treats

Tina's Sweet Treats is a gluten-free bakery located in Franklin, Ohio. When Tina's husband and two daughters were diagnosed with celiac disease, she became serious about making great gluten-free baked goods that everyone could enjoy, so they wouldn't feel like they were missing out. She delivers delicious breads, cookies, cupcakes, muffins, and more twice weekly!

Sinfully Gluten Free Bakery

The Zook family of Centerville, Ohio could not find acceptable alternatives for their gluten-free diet. After trying many disappointing pre-made baked goods and mixes, they felt there had to be something better. So they developed their own line of handcrafted creations that taste like they are fresh from a wheat-based bakery. Their goal is to offer baked treats that make you forget you are eating a gluten-free diet. Their lemon bars and pie crusts are yummy!

A Bit of a Bite Salsa

Local Miamisburg resident Pegge Bellamy spent 11 years tweaking her signature salsa recipes before sharing it with DLM. She hand-selects only the highest quality domestic produce to create a hearty salsa full of tomatoes, zucchini, onions, hot peppers, and cilantro. Her original flavor is Melissa Medium which is perfect with corn chips. Sarah Sweet Salsa has a slight bite which complements the sweetness. The Heiny Hot is for the courageous palatte and is perfect on a burrito or taco.

Local Sauces

Local choices include those from restaurants like Mamma DiSalvo’s (a garlicky best seller, wonderful over pasta) and Annarino’s in Dayton; Capozzi’s in Middletown (a favorite for meatballs as the flavor is full but doesn’t overpower the spices in the meat); and Cucina Pitrelli and La Rosa’s of Cincinnati. Of course, Our DLM Marinara and Original Pasta Sauce are locally made. Each offers an authentic taste derived from an old family recipe, and each is very, very good.

DLM Apple Butter

David and Miriam Cooper began in 1969 with a fresh fruit and vegetable stand in front of their home, but they soon became known for miles around for their delicious homemade apple butter, jams, and jellies. David learned how to make jelly from his grandmother when he was just 12 years old, and he still uses these original recipes today to make our DLM Butters. Their dark, rich apple butter is cooked in 50-gallon copper kettles over a wood fire. Apple butter adds a sweet richness to foods, reducing the use of sugar; and it helps keep baked goods from drying out.

Seasonal Selections Salsa

Located in Waynesville, Seasonal Selections produces hot, medium, and mild salsas called Sugar & Spice. There are no preservatives or fillers which can obscure the natural ingredients. The sweet, yet spicy, flavor is also a great topping on omelets and sautéed vegetables.

Boston Stoker Teas

Don Dean, owner of the Vandalia-based Boston Stoker chain of coffee and tea shops in the Dayton area, three of which are located in our DLM stores, has started selling loose tea for brewing. His biggest sellers are the Blueberry Rooiboss, an antioxidant-rich African tea with real, wild blueberries and the Wild Berry Black, made with real fruit and Chinese shade-grown black tea. All the loose teas are organic and half are also fair trade. The iced teas taste sweet without any artificial sweeteners added. These zero-calorie drinks, some of which are naturally caffeine-free, are refreshing and healthy. Did you know that 85% of tea consumed in America is iced? Now you can also get unique iced (or hot) tea at DLM’s Boston Stoker counters!

Éban Bakehouse

Éban Bakehouse is a local gluten-free company in Grove City near Columbus. They are delivering their freshly baked gluten-free goods to DLM twice a week. They are an Ohio Proud member and have the only sliced gluten-free bread! Feast on their famous Seeded Bread, Cinnamon Raisin Bread, or Oat Flax Bread, and dine on an assortment of unique cookies including Cranberry Walnut Coconut Oatmeal and White Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Purely Sweet Bakery

Purely Sweet Bakery specializes in clean eating with paleo, vegan, gluten free, and raw/organic baked goods. Rather than refined sugars, Dawn Vaflor often uses coconut sugar, agave, or raw, local honey. At the present time we are carrying her Runner's Energy Balls, Paleo Granolas, Peanut Butter Cookies, Snickerdoodles, and Double Chocolate Brownies. Dawn produces her healthy treats locally and sells them at the 2nd Street Market.

Dave’s Dawg Sauce

Locally made in Centerville, this gluten-free sauce is a blend of mustard, peppers, and sweetness that creates a unique flavor burst that enhances all types of food.
