Stock Up: 3 food and drink picks for Atlanta shoppers

From locally made sweet bread to a tasty French rose, here is what we’re filling our shopping cart with this week.

If eco-friendly, handmade, organic and fair trade are at the core of your shopping decisions, check out Harvest, a new online marketplace that sells “farm-to-everything” products. Among the edibles stocked by Atlanta-based company Farm Star Living you’ll find organic cold-pressed juices, gift baking mixes, and even bacon and grassfed beef from White Oak Pastures in Bluffton, Ga. Prices vary,  farmstarlivingshop.com.

Beat the heat with a bottle of rose.

We love sinking our teeth into a slice of sweet quick bread, but in the height of summer, turning on the oven isn’t very appealing. Leave that job to the Fat Lady Baker. The scratch pumpkin bread coming out of owner-baker Nancy McKinney’s Marietta shop is super moist, nicely spiced and full of pumpkin flavor. Find it at the Fat Lady Baker store in Marietta as well as the Acworth, Brookhaven, Marietta Square, Sweet Apple and Woodstock farmers markets. $6 per loaf. 2995 Johnson Ferry Road, Marietta. 770-587-3005, fatladybaker.com.
