This place has so many varieties of foods, books, and kitchen gadgets. If you like to eat or cook or both, you will love it here. Lots of food to order and eat on the premises. Extremely large variety of cooking ingredients and specialty foods.

Since moving to the Raleigh area in 1988, we have enjoyed trips to nearby Chapel Hill to eat and shop at A Southern Season. Today, after eating nearby, we stopped by what used to be a favorite shopping spot. No longer! The store has had a major makeover. Five of our favorite products were no longer available, discontinued, they said.... More

We always make a point to stop at Southern Season when we visit North Carolina. Their Bistro serves great food. The store has a great variety from gourmet food, teas, coffees and pasties to household items, China, handbags and large selection of wines. A great place to visit.

This store is large. Initially overwhelming. The staff is helpful friendly and attentive. This store is by no means cheap but you get what you pay here. Lots of gourmet and specialty food offering. Lots of cooking gadgets and accessories. Fresh coffee, bakery, and deli. I ordered a sandwich for lunch at the deli that was outstanding. Excellent wine section.... More

Just the other day I went to stop in and visit one of my favorite stores, I must admit it had been a year or so since I had visited. What a shock and a major disappointment. I knew the store had been sold by the original owners and that the new ownership was totally commercializing it but I never... More

Love visiting A Southern Season; when I moved to Chapel Hill (in 1976) A Southern Season was a tiny store front where I would buy amazing French bread; now it is an amazing store that has everything!

This mega gourmet store has every gadget known to cooks. The quality of the products is outstanding for both food items and utensils. The buyers for this store hand pick quality products so you can be sure that whatever you pile into your basket will be delicious, unique, and high quality. The prepared foods are delicious, although I have never... More

Amazing place. Every gourmet goody imaginable, including many to eat or drink on site. Cookware, dishes, gift items--really, I could have spent HOURS in this place. If you like to cook or eat or entertain, you owe it to yourself to stop by.

Attended Southern Season's cooking school on a Saturday morning. We visited the Farmer's Market that is held weekly in the University Mall parking lot, then prepared a wonderful lunch which highlighted the fresh NC produce. Yum! Instructor and volunteer staff members were skilled, attentive, fun. A fantastic way to spend a couple of hours with an out of town friend.... More
