At Cosentino’s Markets, we believe in supporting local Kansas City companies and offering their delicious foods to our customers. See below for a listing of the wonderful companies we’re bringing to you year round.
At Shatto Milk Company, Barbara and Leroy Shatto offer milk at its finest. They do this through their dedication to the local family farm. Even though the farm began processing milk in 2003, the family has been farming for over 100 years. Through the years, they have perfected their method and offer superior tasting milk that comes from cows not treated with rbST. In addition to caring for their product, they care about the environment. Their glass bottle packaging is environmentally friendly because the bottles can be washed and reused as many times as they are returned. So, look out for the glass bottles next time you are in the dairy aisle … you can’t miss them!
Green Dirt Farm
Green Dirt Farm is located in Weston, MO where it is owned and operated by Sarah Hoffman and Jacqueline Smith. Hoffman and Smith share a strong commitment to bringing the best farmstead sheep’s milk cheeses, yogurt, and 100% grass-fed lamb to the market. They also don’t use synthetic chemicals, hormones, unnecessary antibiotics, pesticides, or herbicides which allows them to be an Animal Welfare Approved farm. At Green Dirt Farms, they truly celebrate community-based farms and the link between land and food.
Fine Vines Artisanal Ketchup
Bruce Steinberg of Fine Vines Artisanal Ketchup wants to bring an exciting array of flavor varieties to his customers. All the flavors are organic and versatile enough to be used as a condiment, dipping sauce or cooking ingredient. So, the next time you have a BBQ, picnic, or night dining in, make sure to try Thai ginger, smoked serrano, grill smoke, applewood, alderwood, black truffle, or The Roasterie!
Tippin’s Pies has been a Kansas City tradition for over 30 years because of their dedication to premium, hand-crafted desserts. To this day, they are still “the one, the only, the original.”
Christopher Elbow Chocolates
Christopher Elbow Artisanal Chocolates are not only delicious, but they are little works of art. These chocolates can be purchased in 4-piece, 9-piece, 16-piece, 21-piece, and 48-piece collections and range in flavor from Mango Basil, Lavender Caramel, and Citrus Praline to Pineapple and Yuzu. Ever since landing in Kansas City, Christopher’s creations have been met with excitement and rave reviews, and to this day he still makes everything by hand.
Beer Cheese Chip & Vegetable Dip might be new to the Kansas City area, but it packs a delicious punch. Burnham Foods is operated in Lee’s Summit, MO by Tina Burnham. Tina developed the idea to bring this cheesy dip to the masses when she realized how much she missed the foods of her childhood home in Kentucky. If you haven’t tried her dip, stop by the Downtown store on Thursdays from 3-7 p.m. or the Brookside store Fridays from 3-7 p.m. all summer long. Are you ready to take a dip?
Okay, so Indigo Wild isn’t a food … but they do offer amazing products that Cosentino’s is proud to carry. Their Zum line products are made from 100% pure essential oils, shea butter, meadowfoam seed oil, soy wax, goat’s milk, botanical extracts and other karmarific ingredients.

Cooper’s Honey honey bees all come from the Kansas City area and surrounding Midwest region. Every year, the company packages almost 125 tons honey which allows them to partner with local beekeepers and family famers. At their Peculiar, MO location, they produce clover honey, wildflower honey, bee pollen, and beeswax.
John Gordon, founder of Boys Grow, is giving area teens a taste of entrepreneurship. Through this non-profit, boys ages 12 to 15 from the inner city can learn how to grow and produce their own foods. Every year, the group chooses a new product to create and sell in area grocery stores. Past offerings have included salsa and ketchup, and this year they hope to bring a barbecue sauce to the line.
If you haven’t heard, Boulevard is Missouri’s second largest brewery and it’s located right here in Kansas City. Since 1989, their award winning beers have been known for full flavor, distinctive character, and unsurpassed quality. Make sure to try their newest beer, KC Pils, this summer because 10% of local sales of the beer goes directly back to Kansas City charities.
Cal-Ann Farms has been a Kansas City, homegrown farm reaching back 5 generations. Currently, they operate an aquaponics system to grow produce.
