Carmel Honey Company Pure Raw Honey. Real, raw, pure honey has antibacterial, antiseptic and anti-fungal properties. It’s also loaded with minerals, vitamins and antioxidants. A study conducted for Food Safety News shows that at least 75% of the honey sold in the US is actually not real honey, this is why we carry the real deal. At the Wharf Marketplace we carry the “single source” Sage honey that has a mild, delicate flavor. It is sweet in flavor, and pairs perfectly with tea.

Carmel Berry Co. Elderflower Cordial. The Elderflower Cordial is versatile and delicious. The Cordial is a truly exceptional addition to cocktails, sodas, and desserts.

The 200ml bottles provide between 8-13 servings per bottle, depending on how you use the product. Come to The Wharf Marketplace and pick up their brand new mini bottle; it is great for the stocking. Less than 3 oz. it’s another sweet treat perfect form the Monterey Bay.


Other Brother Co. California Growers Blend "Shorty" Extra Virgin Olive Oil. This Extra Virgin features our favorite blend of Carmel Valley, California grown olives (Arbequina, Leccino and Pendolino) which they call the "Growers Blend". Great for daily use, this oil is fruity, buttery and smooth, with a slight kick of pepperiness at the end to leave you wanting more. It comes in a light, tight 250ml tin with a convenient resealable pour spout; too cute.
