Staff Reports | Digital Free Press
SugarJam The Southern Kitchen, a southern brunch restaurant and bakery in north Scottsdale, is expanding its restaurant with a new gift shop full of curated finds from local and national vendors.
In addition to the gift shop, SugarJam is launching its ice cream trailer serving southern flavors. The Market by SugarJam and the SugarJam ice cream trailer are found right next to SugarJam The Southern Kitchen, starting Saturday, July 23.
The Market by SugarJam is set to be a quaint gift shop full of items made by Arizona artisans and small national businesses — not sold on Amazon — and will feature unique items such as handmade candles, artwork, crafts and home goods, according to a press release.
Each of the items at the market will come in small quantities and could even be one-of-a-kind. The store will be continually evolving and feature new pieces from a variety of talented and diverse local and national artists, such as multi-ethnic and woman owned small businesses, the release states.
The Market by SugarJam, starting July 23, is open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday. SugarJam: The Southern Kitchen is open during the same hours and is at 15111 N. Hayden Road in Scottsdale.
“As a small business owner who started off with an at-home bakery selling at local farmers markets, trade shows and festivals around the Valley to Northern Arizona, I am delighted to be able to help support and showcase other local artists and small business owners with The Market by SugarJam, as well as the new ice cream trailer,” said Dana Dumas, the CEO and owner of SugarJam The Southern Kitchen, in the release.
Since December 2011, Ms. Dumas has been growing the SugarJam brand from an at-home bakery (SugarJam Cookies, LLC) to the first brick-and-mortar SugarJam Bake Shop & Bistro and now The Southern Kitchen.
