Avila Acres

Avila Acres Country Gourmet Gift Shoppe is a quaint country store offering fanciful pistachio gifts right from the farm. The family-owned and operated venue is overflowing with the goodness of fresh nuts packaged in colorful boxes and ribbon-tied bags. It's the perfect gift idea for corporate events and parties or special holiday gatherings and get-togethers.

Owner Barbara Avila opened the retail location in 1996 after selling the pistachio treats out of her home for several years. Now locals and visitors alike can visit the old-fashioned-style shop and browse through the whimsical displays of homegrown quality nuts. Barbara is happy to show you the trees and tell you all about the cultivation process involved. Avila Acres will cheerfully ship their products to anywhere in the world.


Fagundes Old World Cheese will make you feel like you have been transported to a distant European land. The dairy farm makes its own farmstead cheese carefully hand-stirring and fussing over the curdling product with tender loving care. The Fagundes family introduced its first Portuguese-style cheese in 2000 which was received with numerous accolades in the industry.

Visitors to the Fagundes Old World Cheese store in Hanford are treated to attentive customer service and the opportunity to sample the cheese of the day. You can purchase individual wedges of assorted homemade cheese or take advantage of one the cow-printed boxed gift sets for a delicious variety.

Sweet Palette Bakery

Sweet Palette Bakery had its start in 2014 when Jose Sanchez, fresh out of art school, decided the community was in need of a creative bakery. The talented food guru continues to delight the neighborhood with his own unique twists on conventional sweet treats. His popular strawberry pizza is a hit with his loyal following and they sell out fast.

Baked goods are always a party favorite but Sweet Palette Bakery makes it even better with its custom specialty cakes and chocolate-covered fruit arrangements. The cupcakes are festive and fun and customers can't stop raving about Jose's cheesecake flan. No theme is beyond Jose's expertise so you can be comfortable ordering those mini football-shaped eclairs or cute panda cookies. It's a win/win for the neighborhood.
