One of the best things about traveling is that you get to find all those unique shops that feature homemade products that you just can’t find anywhere else. Strolling through small towns, you get to find the best mom-and-pop shops, little restaurants and local favorites, making your travels so much more special. A visit to E. Waldo Ward is just like finding another of those little-known gems, with lots of delightful treats that you can bring home, or gift to lots of your favorite friends.
E. Waldo Ward is located just 30 minutes outside of Los Angeles, making this a quick place to stop for some great gifts or a little browsing. And just what will you find here? Some of the most delicious jams, jellies, condiments and other specialty items that have been hugely popular since 1891. Sure, you can shop the full E. Waldo Ward catalog online, but you live so close to the actual store, so you should definitely take advantage and head down.
If you enjoy marmalades, james and jellies, fruit syrups, fruit butters, marinades and sauces (and really, who doesn’t enjoy those), then you are sure to fall in love with this little shop. You can also pick up fresh olives and cherries, sweet pickled fruits and even brandied fruits. Plus everything here is made with no preservatives, all local ingredients, and completely fresh natural flavors. There is no better place to find some special gifts than at E. Waldo Ward.
As you set off to enjoy your shopping trip to E. Waldo Ward, be sure to make that drive in your 2013 SLK55 Roadster from Mercedes-Benz of Encino. You’ll be able to put the top down and cruise along the highway in total elegance and luxury, enjoying the drive as much as the destination. Plus you’ll arrive at your shopping trip in pure Mercedes-Benz style, making a statement as you shop for all your friends and family.
