Excellent shop obviously focused on peanuts. Loads of free, accessible samples. Seasonal specials = great hostess, house sitting, etc gifts. Tight space -- may want to avoid with strollers.

If you like peanuts this is your place in Market Square. Yes it is a bit over priced but what a selection they have! They provide tasting samples and also have some gift items. If you are a peanut fan, just go!
