This Mimosa tree was grown from seed by our friend @ssonmoss and has been quietly bringing its love energy to its little corner of the courtyard since we opened. Today we noticed buds for the first time! Keep your eye out for the pink puff magic to come! #pleasuremedicine #plantmedicine #invasivebutpretty #treemore
Have we mentioned how much we love The Merguez sausage from @asankabaltimore? Here’s our plate with @moonvalleyfarm paprika spiced Christmas Lima Bean Conserva, and Russian Kale, housemade pickles, and pure full blast, all-in love. ❤️🌿
See you tomorrow, for Brunch! 🌿🌸🔥❤️

New addition to the courtyard to celebrate our 2nd Anniversary, the “Dinner Painting”. Built from a single ash tree, and made in secret over the last 6 months with the kind guidance of @goodwooddesign
Ideal spot for a special occasion dinner, or a  date night. 

Inspired by Michelangelo Pistoletto’s Quadro da pranzo (Lunch painting), 1965 #outdooreating #woodslab #artepovera #wabisabi #tablefortwo
❤️ Happy Mother’s Day, to ours, to yours, and with deep thanks to all mothers across time, space, and species. It’s also our ✨2nd Anniversary, and well, we’re kind of amazed and bewildered we’ve made it this far. Thank you for being with us! Some of you know we started here in Baltimore doing ‘avant brunch’ in our house, so its fitting that Brunch marks this day. Insatiably yours, Larder

Just back in the shop, a classic of @colectivo1050grados  these mezcal cups are inspired by traditional Mexican forms. The "Mezcalerito Zandunga" was originally designed for a mezcaleria and restaurant in Oaxaca. Available from Larder in 5 different colors. If you don't drink mezcal, you can use them for marmelades, soy suace, table salt or paper clips.

We endeavor to make every day earth day at Larder. Today we want to tell you about some of the things we do as a business to grapple with our environmental impact.

We have always used 100% compostable disposable containers and cutlery, and now that styrofoam packaging is banned, many more businesses are making this change. We also pay @baltimorecompostcollective to pickup our compost (separated into plant-based kitchen scraps for their 3 bin on-site composting system; and meat, oil, soiled paper and compostable containers for industrial compost processing). 

This is key. Compostables that go in the trash are sent to landfills and incinerators where they do damage to air quality and contribute to climate change.

Knowing that many of our CSR subscribers don’t have easy access to industrial composting services (hey @sustainbmore  let’s get curbside compost pickup going!) we recently switched to all reusable containers. These stainless steel containers with silicon tops were a big up-front investment, but over time we will save costs by buying less disposable containers, AND we are investing in the future of the planet!

What we do as individuals can have an impact. The decisions we make and examples we set as small businesses have an even bigger impact. To really move the needle we need government, national agencies, trade associations and non-profits to push with us against the profit interests of big companies who are invested in keeping the widespread use disposable packaging in place.

Habits change, people have power, let’s get organized.

Introducing the new housemade Mocktail: the *Jinn Tonic*
Combining botanicals commonly found in Gin...Blood orange, Juniper, Ginger, coriander, Anise, and of course Tonic. Served carbonated direct from the tap! ; ) #lowABV #NAcocktail #springspritzer #JinnNotGin #SpiritsnotSpirits
We’ve been so focused on our reopening last week, that we didn’t get a chance to post this beautiful article by @elizabethevittsdickinson in the #WashingtonPostMagazine  #silkyprose #baltimorelove
We are once again hosting the magical @foxhavenfarmretreatcenter medicinal plant CSA! The third Saturday of every month @quinoaween brings organic, Maryland grown, hand harvested herbs to the courtyard for pickup... AND offers classes to share her deep and dedicated plant knowledge. There are still spots (link in their profile)! Treat yourself or someone you love who loves plants. #growyourownmedicine #foodasmedicine #marylandgrown #plantmedicine #folkmedicine
Indigo totes! Hand dyed by us, with a lil help from our friend @totally.literally 
Each one a different design. They have a small pocket inside that fits the whole bag (stuffed like a sleeping bag) to make it ultra portable. Logo screenprinted by our new bud Allison @globeatmica 
This summer Baltimore will be banning plastic bags (♥️) so an ideal time to build the collection ; )
Creamy citrus desserts are a Larder favorite. @bea_cake whipped up this GF coconut lime curd pie and it hits all the right notes. Available for pre-order online. #flavorflours #glutenfree #lime #wintercitrus #citrusseason #treatyourself @alicemedrich
We have @kitchengirlfarm eggs! CSR subscribers can add-on for all four weeks. Also available for purchase online by the dozen. 

These beautiful pastured, multicolor eggs (from heritage breed hens) are coming from a woman-owned, Maryland Farm that is working to leave the land better than they found it. Oh and the eggs are super delicious! #pastureraisedeggs #regenerativeagriculture #knowyourfarmer #marylandgrown #heritagebreedchickens #mobilechickencoop #alpacaguarddog
We love greens. And @strengthtolovefarm grows some of the most vibrant greens around, right in the heart of West Baltimore. Many thanks to their team and a big warm welcome to new farm manager Bryan Wright. Wether we are bundling braising greens for our CSR subscribers or cooking them down into our own dishes, it is such a treat to eat greens straight out of the ground throughout winter. Look for them @32ndstreetfarmersmarket in the @farmalliancebaltimore booth. #knowyourfarmer #eatlocalbaltimore #baltimorefoodie #blackfarmers
Burger Kits! Despite the mayor’s regulation changes, we are going to hang tight with subscriptions and online orders for now. 

Kits are built for two and you can choose beef, bison and beet burgers or our housemade tempeh. 

Comes with @motzi.bread bun or you can request @amaranth_bakery gf bun. Also @lancasterfarmfresh little gem lettuce, tomato jam and sunchoke pickles! We’ll give you all of our tips on how to cook the perfect burger! #burgerkit #tempehburger #tempeh #bmorefoodie
New arrivals from @whiterosemiso available in our online shop now! The white miso is light and fruity... and gluten free! The black walnut really wants to be baked into some chocolate chip cookies and we love a dollop of the gochujang on sautéed hearty winter greens. Order now and pick up Friday 3-7 or Sunday 10-2. #miso #whitemiso #smallbatchmiso #localmiso #baltimorefoodie #gochujang #blackwalnut #koji #kojibuildscommunity #probiotic
We are back from resting, dreaming, organizing and scheming... CSR subscription for January is sold out but there are spots for February. Online store is up with staples and more heat-at-home options to come in the next couple of days. We miss you! Stay safe out there. ♥️♥️♥️ pictured: Ayocote Bean Conserva @rancho_gordo Ayocote Negro beans, @moonvalleyfarm chiles, garlic, preserved lemon, sea salt. Medium spice, deep earthy flavor. #ayocotebeans #ayocotenegro #beanconserva #hungarianpaprika #redembercayenne #baltimorefoodie #growninmaryland #knowyourfarmer
We are taking a break this week. Catching up on rest, spending (virtual) time with loved ones and watching the final sunsets of 2020 on the banks of the Chesapeake. We are so grateful to our staff, customers, family and friends for standing by us through all of the twists and turns. Our online store will re-open on January 13th, with first pickup on Friday, January 15th. We look forward to seeing you all in the new year. #happynewyear #sunset2020 #onvacation #chesapeakebay #downtownbaltimore #oldgoucher #remmington #charlesvillage #bmorefoodie
