The Local Fare Opens Today in Arlington

With cookies, nut milks, macarons, and more

The Local Fare

A specialty food store and collaborative kitchen space in Arlington opens today after months of work from its three founders. The Local Fare — brought to you by Nutty LifeKitchen Millie, and Boston Bonbon — will sell products from each of the three businesses.

Caroline Huffstetler of Nutty Life, Rita Ng of Boston Bonbon, and Michelle Wax of Kitchen Millie Two-Bite Cookies joined forces to build this shared space and commissary kitchen, using a Kickstarter campaign to spread the word and raise funds, as Boston Magazine reported. Wax, who is also co-curator of Boston & Bale, a gift box delivery service, had worked with Ng and knew Huffstetler through a network group for food startups.

Their shop is located at 2 Lake St. and opens today from 1 to 7 p.m., featuring items for each of their businesses. Nutty Life specializes in organic nut-based milks; Boston Bonbon creates specialty desserts and pastries, including macarons, cakes, cookies, and more; and Kitchen Millie creates a full array of two-bite cookies. The Local Fare will also have a grand opening event later this month.
