Kudzu Bakery & Market, hidden in a little courtyard a block off Front Street, serves delicious fresh-baked pastries and coffees. It’s also a fine spot to pick up wines and deli sandwiches for the day. If you want a broader selection of meats and prepared sides, visit Morsels Market on Front Street to pack a gourmet picnic.
