Name of your business: Sarah K’s Gourmet
Owner’s name: Sarah K. Schreifer
How long have you been in business? Sarah K’s Gourmet opened 6 September 2005. We will be celebrating our 7th anniversary this September.
How long have you lived in the area and where are you from? I grew up in a military family so I’ve lived all over! I spent most of my time in Coloradao and California. I was living in Philadelphia prior to my move to Destin. Our manager, Tiffany Eaves, is the driving force behind our presence at the farmer’s market and she has lived on the Emerald Coast for the past 14 years.
How far do you travel for the market? Our physical store location is in Destin.
What products do you offer? We’ve won the prestigious “Best of the Emerald Coast” award every year since our inception as we are known for our Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes – all crab with no filler – and our chicken salad is a local favorite. In addition to the crab cakes and chicken salad, we offer casseroles, salads, spreads and desserts.
What makes your items special or unique? Our crab cakes are made with jumbo lump crab meat and no filler. We were recently recognized by Taste of Home Magazine as one of the top five destinations in the United States for crab cakes.
Is there anything new on the horizon? New products, seasonal items or specials? We are looking at expanding to various farmers markets during the summer season. We have a menu that changes daily to incorporate seasonal vegetables and fresh catches so there’s always something new at Sarah K’s!
