7 things to try at Glen’s Garden Market


When stocking the shelves for Glen’s Garden Market, her 10,000-square-foot store near Dupont Circle, Danielle Vogel sampled and selected every one of the 1,100-plus products. Here are a few of her favorites, including some made in-house by chef Sean Sullivan:

Bigg Riggs Farm Spicy Beer Mustard, from West Virginia; 12 ounces, $5.99, and slathered on the house-made hot dog.

Rip Rap Bakery Seeded Crackers, from Pennsylvania; 8 ounces, $5.99.

Gordy’s Pickle Jar Cherry Pepper Spread, from the District; 12 ounces, $10.99.

Number 1 Sons Half-Sour Pickles, from Arlington; 24 ounces, $8.99.

Port City Optimal Wit, from Alexandria. On tap, $4; six-pack, $12.99.

House-made bison pastrami, $27.99 a pound. Market chef Sean Sullivan uses dry-aged meat from Gunpowder Bison & Trading, based in Monkton, Md.

House-cured fennel salami, $15.99 a pound. Sullivan ages the salami in Glen’s own curing box.
