I cannot believe that we are three years old with Mitchellś Marketplace & Company.  What a trip!  We started with granola, coffee and soda shop.  to adding Ice Cream- Clove Sage Antiques & Gifts to Pesto Fine Italian our now flag ship restaurant that has blessed us!  

  We added our Wine Shop in 2020 and in 2021 we added our Flowers Shop all under one umbrella, one roof, one business with many facets of moving businesses within one!  We believe that our guest deserves the best.  When you love what you are doing, you stand in faith!  That is what we do everyday! 

We are celebrating so much more then just a three year Anniversary- We bought our store location.  It is ours!  The feeling of ownership means so much to me.  When we started this store we had no idea where God would guide us.   We invite you our customers, our friends and neighbors to come visit us.  

Thank you for being part of our story!
