A dish is not a
meal until it is shared

Whether it be in our cookshop, at home with a singular someone special, or sitting at a community table, we want to make preparing and sharing a delicious meal both accessible and enjoyable from start to finish. 





The Mercantile wears many (chef) hats! Our main objective is to be a one-stop-shop for all things culinary. Each section has been carefully developed with both the home cook and professional chef in mind. Come and visit us for classes & events or to browse our pantry section for kitchenwares and unique provisions that have been internationally imported, locally sourced or prepared right in our cookshop. 

“Pull up a chair. Take a taste. Come join us. Life is so endlessly delicious.”

Here at the Mercantile we want you to fall as in love with the kitchen as we are. The Pantry will ensure your home can be stocked with both necessity standard and fantastically uncommon products. The Cookshop will send you home with yummy treats, recipes & professional kitchen skills and secrets & The Patio will be there to remind you that our house is always your house.
Sharing the food of life with others is what makes the ordinary, exceptional.  

If you take a look at the top of our building from the outside, scribed across the top is DAILY & while the historical rumors of what this building was once used for (ask us when you come in!) are quite interesting, Owner Donna Sesto sought out to restore the landmark to live up to this permanently etched title instead. Located in the heart of Babylon Village, the Daily Building
began to take its form as a sight to be seen & visited on the daily through it’s design.
