If you’ve never visited quirky and wonderful Sacramento Beekeeping Supplies in midtown, you are in for a sweet treat. This family-owned store is packed with an enticing array of local honeys (you can even buy it in bulk – I’m partial to the fragrant Sacramento wildflower honey) and honey-related products, from lip balm and medications to hand cream and candy (don’t miss the chocolate honey mints – they’re scrumptious). If you’re having trouble deciding which flavor of honey to buy, check out the store’s cute little “tasting bar,” which encourages you to sample the flavors before buying. Dreaming of starting your own beehive? The friendly staff can guide you in the right direction; and if you’re interested in making beeswax candles, you’ll find a raft of supplies to get you started.
