NOMA Kitchen & Home
NOMA Kitchen & Home is a unique shop located in the historic building in downtown Putnam, CT that used to be home to a bank and several offices. Owner’s George Melendez and Esperanza Gomez have worked hard to bring a large offering of high end home and kitchen products, along with a vast assortment of fine olive oils and vinegars to this beautiful location just minutes from the Massachusetts line.
Renovating the historic building was a 10 month project, but a labor of love for the couple and the results are simply stunning. If the outside of the building, with its striking stone entrance is not enough to catch your fancy, upon entering you will be greeted by a beautiful, wide open space that combines the feel of a trendy New York Loft with the atmosphere of a european olive oil tasting bar. George has travelled and worked extensively in Europe, and has done a great job of bringing that feel back here to Putnam.
Along with all the oils and vinegars, NOMA offers over 30 flavors of private label pasta, made in Washington State, a vast array of spices and seasonings, fine chocolates, pastries, and much more. They are constantly searching for new products to bring in and share with their customers.
Not only does NOMA provide all of these delicious ingredients, but you can also find many unique, high end items for your kitchen including linens, aprons, Nespresso machines, serving ware and more. And if you are overwhelmed by all the exceptional options, Esperanza is more than happy to provide customers with a guiding hand.
NOMA also features an online store www.NOMAHome.com where customers can make there purchases from home, and also plans to offer educational classes and tastings featuring guest chefs and product specialists. If you enjoy the kitchen, and good food, NOMA is definitely worth the small trip to Putnam. It’s a place you will want to go back to.
