New Local Products Worth a Try

Winner of a gold medal at the Sonoma County Harvest Fair, this healthy granola was created by 3 friends and is produced in Sebastopol, CA.  It is wheat free, dairy free, and salt free, all natural and delicious.

Made from her grandmother’s recipe, San Rafael resident Kara Romanik has made some amazing pies.  Available as a whole pie or “pocket size”, they are free of preservatives.  Therefore, the pies are sold frozen and are delicious hot out of the oven.  Flavors of fresh strawberry, apple and pumpkin will be a treat.  I tried the pocket pie and it was tasty and not too sweet as some pies can be.

Candied Bacon

Bacon Candy by A Periodic Table blog
Surprise Dad with some homemade Bacon Candy for Father’s Day! We’ve been seeing Candied Bacon literally everywhere! It’s all the rage! One of our employees stumbled across this Bourbon Candied Bacon recipe by The Proof that she really likes and just had to share with the rest of the world. It seriously looks AMAZING. You can serve it at brunch with some waffle and eggs, or if you’re feeling like living dangerously, we’d even eat it on it’s own. Continue reading

Introducing Man Cave Meats


Man Cave Craft Meats
started in the Minneapolis Farmers Market peddling a few styles of brats and burgers. Inspired by craft beer, they became the pioneers for the craft meat movement. They tested hundreds of recipes to find the perfect combination of unique flavors in the products you can find in our stores today.

More of a Double IPA than light brown water, Man Cave Craft Meats has become the “craft beer of the meat department.” A heavy emphasis is placed upon constant improvement and quality. Every recipe is repeatedly taste tested and consumed by every single employee from the CEO to the temporary interns. After production, each batch is checked in depth for quality and awesomeness.

Two summers ago a local Minneapolis grocery chain inquired about availability in retail stores. This retailer had heard about this craft meat booth that had become a staple of the market and decided to bring Man Cave Craft Meats into their stores. Today Man Cave has entered almost 3,000 stores nationwide including Mollie Stone’s Markets!

Even with all their success, they remain humble and still have the 10’x10′ tent at the Farmers Market. Keep your beginning close to heart, do what you love, love what you do—”In Meat We Trust.”

Find Man Cave Craft Meats at your local Mollie Stone’s today!
