Henry Wainer originally started The Gourmet Outlet to allow family and friends the opportunity to taste and buy wonderful ingredients from the world’s finest farms. Before then, these ingredients were only available to top chefs. As word of mouth spread, The Gourmet Outlet branched into a way to support the local community and to test market new items. Since then, it has blossomed into a bustling gourmet shop attracting customers from all across New England. Chefs from near and far can often be found at The Gourmet Outlet, shopping and tasting new food. The outlet features our international gallery of cheese, a charcuterie section, and a specialty produce cooler filled with unusual and hard to find items. It hosts two professional kitchens for demonstrations. Henry Wainer explains, “I’d never buy anything without testing it first to see if I liked it. I wouldn’t expect anything less from my customers.”


The Gourmet Outlet is a great place to learn about new ingredients and cooking techniques.
