Speaking of the owner, here is Kirsten behind the counter.
The shop had a lot of neat little items. As you can see in the above photo, there are chocolate bars and treats at the checkout counter. A lot of these are from Terroir Chocolate that I had not heard of before. Kirsten slipped this 2 oz 43% Toasted Sesame bar into my bag when I bought this Chocolate Salt I found over on this display you can see below. This isn't a review of the chocolate but of the shop but I will say that I did like this bar and if the rest of The Carrot Seed's selection is as carefully chosen, this would be a good stop for chocolate.
I know that Brookings, SD, is small and that most of you reading this may never even go to South Dakota but if you are ever out that way do try to check out The Carrot Seed Kitchen Co. You can find the shop in downtown Brookings by looking for this sign on their door or the building top sign that I started this article off with. Their address is 312 Main Avenue. If you do, you'll find a friendly owner and a lot of cute and cool kitchen stuff. While you can't order cookware or mixes from their website, you can get gift cards and sign up for their classes online.
