Our First Month

If you’ve come into Canyon Gourmet since we’ve re-opened, Thank you.
We’ve gotten a lot of joy and useful experience from the first month being open. I personally love, LOVE the interaction with people who come in. There is something about the specialness of Topanga that is magnified inside our store, the parents with their kids, people that come in all the time, knowing them as individuals, and what they like. In that sense it is perfect.
As one might imagine making our little place run efficiently in Topanga has it’s own unique challenges.
Gauging precisely what the market can bear here has taken us awhile to dial in.
We are increasing inventory regularly now, and bringing in new stuff each week, including new extraordinary foods as well as unique vintage and handmade gift items match the uncompromising aesthetic we’re interested in, proud of
We want this place to be better than just a little store in Topanga, we want it to be unique in all of LA. The most thoughtfully curated venue it can possibly be, while still being essential, useful for daily lives.
We are fine tuning our Twitter and Facebook integration with this website to get a spontaneous CG market report out there so people can be aware of what we have. Fresh news for fresh products make sense.

What we’re trying to do is not just about food. It not just for our mouths or stomachs or even our eyes…
And…It’s bigger than rote business, there is meaning to what we endeavor to accomplish every day for ourselves and the people who walk through the door. Natalie, Arielle Danielle and I all share that view. Thanks for giving us this opportunity.
