The Recipe contest was a huge success last weekend! Find out who won!

Congratulations to all of the participants of the Lemon Tree Grocer Recipe Contest!   All of the dishes were absolutely delicious – You made it very difficult to choose the winners from each category.  We enjoyed getting to know each of you and can’t wait to see you in the store on opening day or before!


A special thank you to Dream Interiors for hosting our event and to all of the supportive guests.  We’re guessing some of the winning dishes may not have been entered without you.
