MARKET SPOTLIGHT

Light Up Your Love!

Brent Roose, the founder of Big Dipper Wax Works, was enlightened by the beauty of nature when he was hiking along the shoreline of Olympic Peninsula in Washington. He then decided to create beeswax-based products that you can now get at Driver’s to light up your love on Valentine’s day.

Your Local Grains Bakery

As a teacher, Rhonda Wiedenbeck has taught hundreds of people how to make artisan bread. When she volunteered with a school kitchen to develop new wholegrain-based food for school lunches, she was inspired to create her own bakery. Beck’s Bakery uses grains from local farmers, grinds them fresh with a stone mill, and makes tasty beautiful bread and crackers.

DRIVER’S INSIGHTS

Fall in Love with Craft Chocolate



The American craft chocolate scene seems to get bigger and better every year, offering quality that rivals European chocolatiers. As the industry grows, chocolate bars are getting more complex. Small batch chocolate labels now list the country of origin of the cocoa bean, ethical practices, fermentation and roasting techniques, and of course the all important cocoa percentage.

For Mia di Tommaso, Driver’s chocolate buyer, the first priority is knowing the chocolates are made responsibly. She looks at the quality of the beans, and for Fair Trade certified products. Some makers, like Ashkinosie Chocolate, go beyond fair trade practices, offering profit sharing to farmers and sending them samples of the finished product. “Many farmers grow cocoa beans, but have never tasted chocolate,” said Mia.
