Epicurean adventure awaits at Hyde Park Village
The shop also offers home and cocktail accessories, such as oak barrels to properly age rum, tequila or bourbon. This isn’t Fig & Julep’s first location. The store opened in Winter Park in December of 2016. The Orlando Sentinel reports that the Fig & Julep is the sister store to The Ancient Olive — offering artisanal oils and culinary/home accessories.
On July 5, Fig & Julep owners put out a call for applications for part-time and full-time employment with wages starting at $10/hour. A job with Fig & Julep puts individuals in a prime position to expand their culinary horizons at one of the city’s main economic boons.
