Nearly seven and a half years ago, I did a blog post about the launch of Confituras, at the Barton Creek Farmer’s Market. During the course of the last seven plus years, Confituras grew quite a bit, expanded her seasonal, artisanal jam offerings, won multiple Good Food Awards, participated in hundreds of events, worked her butt off and landed quite a few retail clients, including Whole Foods.
On Wednesday January 3, 2018 Confituras Little Kitchen, the brick and mortar biscuit and jam shop and community kitchen officially opened for business! After a successful Kickstarter campaign, and over a year of navigating the arduous city permitting process and construction, this super clever shop is now open Wednesday through Saturday for Biscuits and Jam, locally sourced Little City Coffee and Lost Pines Yaupon Tea. The shop also has a sweet curated collection of retail items for sale, including Two Hives Honey, Barton Springs Mill, CoffeeSock and Springdale Handmade soaps made specially for the shop and our Calendula Salve. Of course, you can still buy Confituras’ jams, jam boxes and a new biscuit box that includes biscuit mix and jam.
The commercial kitchen space will house local chefs and caterers, and will also provide space for new women owned food businesses get their start with help from those who have been in their shoes.
Go by and get some biscuits and jam this weekend!
