Jessie Mooberry and Soren Rubin are the two locally minded types behind Farmer & Co., a new cafe and artisanal market in Unionville. Formerly Foxy Loxy, the 1820 Victorian-style digs now provide a charming setting for savoring chouxnuts, custom cakes, breakfast bars sweetened with honey and maple syrup, healthy energy balls, and various caffeinated creations. Market options include beef from Green Valley Farms in Avondale, pork from Landenberg’s Fox Penn Farms, and cheese and eggs from nearby Doe Run Farm in Unionville.
You’ll also find Éclat chocolates and Turk’s Head small-batch hot sauce, both out of West Chester; Swarmbustin’ Honey from a family apiary in West Grove; and fresh beans from Philadelphia’s Elixr Coffee. And don’t miss the vegan and gluten-free goodies and pastries from OsoSweet Bakery Cafe in Chadds Ford. As the weather gets colder, warm up with house-made soups like paleo chili, andouille sausage gumbo, garden tomato, and vegetable with heirloom grains. 5 Cemetery Lane, Unionville, (610) 347-0209, farmerand.co.
