Frederick Foodie Gift Guide

on November 19, 2019

The season of gifting has arrived and we’ve rounded up lots of wonderful edible and experiential gift ideas that can all be found in downtown Frederick.

Things They Can Eat

What about an assortment of colorful and unique pastas from The Pasta Palette?

Give them a set of carefully curated oils and vinegars from Lebherz Oil & Vinegar Emporium

Choose a fun assortment of sodas and gift them a 6-pack from the North Market Pop Shop

Bring Pretzel and Pizza Creations home with one of their Dough Making Kits!

Grab a bottle or two of local hootch! Local spirits, wine and beer make wonderful gifts. In downtown Frederick you’ll find spirits at Tenth Ward Distilling Company and McClintock Distilling. Dragon Distillery is also not too far away. Shop for wine at Spin the Bottle Wine Company, Viniferous and The Wine Kitchen (all of their bottles on their menu are available for sale too.) Local breweries include Olde Mother Brewing Co, Monocacy Brewing Co., Idiom Brewing Co., Attaboy, Smoketown Creekside, Brewer’s Alley, and Jug Bridge Brewery. 

Keep mugs warm all season long! You can pick up a variety of tea at Voila! and the Shab Row Tea Emporium. If they like their brews a little stronger, get them a bag of beans from The Frederick Coffee Company or Dublin Roasters.  

No one’s ever been upset with chocolate. Find delicious local chocolate at Zoe’s Chocolate Co, The Perfect Truffle and Despina Leos Candy Kitchen

Bring your favorite host a few hunks from Crisafulli’s Cheese Shop or get them a gift certificate and let them choose their own. 

The same goes for Hippy Chick Hummus, some of their smooth spreads would be a great addition to any holiday party. 

McCutcheon’s Factory Store is located in Frederick and is a great place to stock up on food gifts. They know what they’re doing too, this family owned business has been in operation since 1938. 

Let Two Sweet LLC handle the holiday cookie baking for you!


A Taste Frederick Food Tour! Gift certificates are available and select tours return in January 2020. 

A class at the Kitchen Studio Cooking School 

A Downtown Frederick Gift Card

An Uncapped 2020 Craft Beer & Spirits Card. Making spirits bright in the New Year, this card is good for beer flights or spirit tastings for 2 adults at each of the 12 Frederick-area participating locations!

Let the folks at The Frederick Basket Company or Firestone’s Market on Market help you put together a beautiful assortment of products tailored to the occasion or person you are gifting to.
