The Little Things Shortbread

Our shortbread is not only handmade in small batches, it’s also filled, labeled, and sealed by hand - every single cookie and every single jar. Thank you for supporting the makers movement and enjoying the little things that we hold so dear in our hearts (and hands!) ❤️

Found. Market is a family owned and operated kitchen, eatery, and marketplace in the Belmont neighborhood of Charlottesville. Our kitchen is brimming with the production of wholesale shortbread plus the creation of homemade foods to eat-in or take to-go. The marketplace is full of gifts and more, curated from independent makers around the U.S. We have a strong connection to the stories of our products and built Found. as a place to share those stories
