More than 40 years ago, Harry J. Hoenselaar chose individual hams, cured them in his secret marinade, and smoked them over hardwood chips before offsetting the earthy flavor with a crisp, sweet glaze. To this day, the staff still makes the signature bone-in hams one at a time and glazes them in the shop. In addition to the eponymous victuals, the ham denizens turn their braising prowess on similarly delightful platter toppers, including turkey and barbecued pork.

The hammery's kitchens also whip up classic side dishes and desserts, such as the sweet-potato soufflé. For less formal feasting, party trays and packed lunch boxes fuel business meetings, backyard grad parties, and lengthy end-zone celebrations.

The expert sweets-smiths at SilkFudge adhere to a treasured family recipe when handcrafting each small batch of the rich, milky morsels. Chefs cobble together cream, butter, sugar, and quality chocolate to create one-pound Most Popular Fudge packages featuring four separate flavors in quarter-pound increments. Customers who invest in the original Most Popular Fudge package can marvel over the mingling of toffee chips and milk chocolate in the shop's toffee-chocolate fudge, or freshen their breath by substituting toothpaste for the decidedly more delicious mint-chocolate fudge, topped with Andes mints. Classic milk-chocolate fudge satiates fans of conventional confections, and peanut-butter fudge puts a tempting twist on tradition by filling a block of classic fudge with a creamy ribbon of peanut butter. Customers can delight neighborhood squirrels with a Most Popular Fudge With Nuts package, where four of the shop's most popular nut sellers come together to form one protein-packed pound. Chopped pecans and walnuts borough deep within milk chocolate to create one half of the crunchy combos, and coconut and almonds happily harmonize in bites of Almond Joy fudge. Adding a touch of sweet sophistication to the mix, a quarter pound of dark-chocolate fudge embraces a medley of walnuts, pecans, cashews, and almonds, creating a snack that is sweet, salty, and sends a stern message when sent to ex-dentists.
