5 Surprising Home Decor Stores That Also Sell Food
Food is the best. So when I can check out cool food items at places I didn’t expect — like my favorite home decor store — all the better. Plus, because these retailers don’t necessarily focus on food items, what they do stock is carefully curated for the shoppers of that store. That means you can score everything from Bavarian mustard at World Market to artisanal goat-milk caramels at Anthropologie. So the next time you’re shopping for a new dining table, don’t forget to bring your grocery list!
1. World Market
It’s not surprising to those who frequent World Market that the retailer carries food — it’s a market, after all, sourced from around the world. Still, it is a bit shocking how enormous the range of food items is at just one of these stores. From Danish cookies to Mediterranean spices to all sorts of jams, jellies, and spreads, there’s a ton to keep adding to your cart (including a Downton Abbey collection), especially if you’re missing favorite goodies from other countries. And we have to say, their international coffee and tea selection is also top-notch.

Those who are hip to the max (sorry) know that there are a ton of food deals at T.J.Maxx. They have an entire section devoted to foodstuffs, including pastas, coffee, snacks, infused oils, and seasonings. You can also find food items at its sister store, Homegoods. While the food isn’t readily available online (go to the store, people!), here are a few food-related picks you can score ASAP.

Sure, it’s a great place to buy dorm essentials, new towels, bedding, and even a kitchen item or two, but Bed Bath & Beyond also has a slew of food finds at every store that are worth checking out. Sadly, there aren’t as many things available online — but here are a few.

Yes, it’s where you can buy all the affordable, “OMG-how-do-you-actually-construct-this?” furniture. Yes, it’s also where you can dine on Swedish meatballs. And, yes, there are other foodstuffs at IKEA to take home with you — they’re in the Swedish Food Market. And it’s definitely worth a look.
