Tasty soups like tomato basil and cream of cauliflower; rich, delicious ice creams; and high-quality pastas are just some of the delectable treats you can find at Provisions Gourmet Market and Gifts. Need a great gift for a special occasion? How about a Gourmet gift basket? There are several from which to choose, but a local favorite is The Best of Missouri. Supporting local businesses, the Provisions Gourmet Market folks stuff this basket with jelly, wing sauce, summer sausage and more — all from right here in the Show-Me state. Food and wine classes are available, too.
