About Isabella Gourmet Foods


Isabella Gourmet Foods is downtown Santa Barbara’s boutique artisan grocery, serving its patrons the most unique artisan foods the area has to offer. In her latest entrepreneurial venture, owner and Registered Dietitian Amy Isabella Chalker marries the down home charm of an East Coast general store with the upscale setting of a big city boutique and injects it with fresh, local, organic food that Santa Barbara residents and visitors alike have come to expect from their specialty food shops.

Operating as a series of semi-permanent pop-up locations around Santa Barbara, Isabella Gourmet Foods is steps away no matter where you are. Patrons will find that many foods inside Isabella have been baked, produced, or harvested that very day, while prepared items to-go, including sandwiches and salads from The Honey B Kitchen keep the lunch crowds satisfied.

Novelty items like avocado oil, bourbon barrel-aged maple syrup, and honey dijon popcorn, as well as a wide selection of gluten-free and vegan options are sure to meet the palates of even the most discerning and health-conscious customer.

Scattered among the local offerings, customers will find thoughtfully selected artisan foods from New England and the boroughs of New York, including Morris Kitchen Syrups and Salt Water Taffy, reflecting Amy Isabella’s journey from the East Coast to the West.

Isabella Gourmet Foods also offers custom gift baskets and picnic baskets for a variety of occasions, including corporate events, concert meals, hostess gifts, weddings favors, and more.
