Found. Market is a kitchen and creative retail shop featuring craveable foods and independent makers, located in the original Kathy's Produce warehouse in Belmont
We're most known for our 4 year old shortbread business, cookies made from scratch in our kitchen and sold to various gourmet shops in Charlottesville and beyond. In March 2017, however, we took a leap and opened the retail space giving us an opportunity to offer a place for the community to gather around good food, functional art, and inspirational design. We host makers workshops, and offer a space for neighbors to host their own workshops as well.
