When it comes to heathy food, fresh is best; homemade tends to be tastier and there’s no need to mess with quality ingredients. At Hovey & Harrison, this is the basis of the café menu as well as the grab-and-go offerings. After all, the business originally started as a produce market and distribution company, selling local fruits and vegetables, 10 years ago.

“Hovey & Harrison was definitely a byproduct of the ideology that eating local is just better,” said Gretchen Hovey. “It tastes better, it’s better for the environment, it keeps money circulating on a more local level.”

From the twice-weekly trips to Palisade for fresh produce in the summer to homemade mayonnaise and bread, everything is made from scratch at Hovey & Harrison. The result? Food that is both healthy and tasty.

“I don’t think food has to be super complicated to taste good and be good for you,” Hovey said. “You just have to pay attention to the ingredients you’re working with and you have to care about what you’re doing.”
