Best Local Products in Columbus of 2015
Buy Local. Shop Local. Support Local. Columbus is filled with some amazing locally-made products, which can be easy to find when you know where to look. When we asked our readers about their absolute favorite local products this year, we asked more specifically about products that aren’t featured in their own specific store, which means that you have to look in specific spots (or order online) to find these particular local goods.
The number one answer this year was Darista Dips. What began as a pop-up cafe project in 2012, turned into a wholesale business now sells an expanded line of eight gourmet dips that include flavors ranging from Moroccan Carrot Dip to Roasted Beet Hummus to Chocolate Coffee Cayenne Dip. Owner Dara Schwartz produces the products for resale in local stores including Hills Market, Giant Eagle Market District, Weiland’s Market, Lucky’s Market and others.
