Looking for local food gifts? Huntington Kitchen

Over the next several weeks, I'm going to highlight local food entrepreneurs whose products may make good gifts this holiday season.

First up is Jennifer Huntington of Huntington Kitchen.

I first became aware of her nut butters and baked goods earlier this year when I won samples of her almond butter, cashew butter and coffee vanilla peanut butter at a local canning swap. (The coffee vanilla peanut butter is absolutely delicious and addictive.)

Huntington, 33, has a master's degree in public health from UNC, but decided to become a stay-at-home mom for her sons, James, 3, and Benjamin, a 5-month-old. She had always been into cooking, making her own granola and nut butters. Late last year, she decided to turn those skills into a business.

She started selling baked goods, granolas and nut butters as Huntington Kitchen at the Raleigh Downtown Farmers Market. She also offers her products to customers of The Produce Box, a weekly delivery service of fruits and vegetables from local farms. She also sells her nut butters and granolas online. Prices range from $6 to $35. Go to or

Update: Huntington tells me that she is now offering three- and six-month subscriptions for nut butters and granolas. She writes, "Some months, the flavors that we will offer will be exclusively available to members only." Those can be delivered to your door or are available to pick up locally.
