The Golden Door Country Store is one of the newest additions to the exclusive Golden Door Luxury Resort and Spa. Golden Door isn't just any luxury spa though. It is one of the world's most coveted spa retreats and is located right here in San Marcos!  Most will never step through that mystifying golden door (it is a $10,000 per week experience after all), but go across the street and you can get a tiny glimpse into what they're all about!

I think one of the most important things to take note of their country store is that 100% of all net profits go to various organizations which help battered children and women. 100%!  That is so unbelievable to me! Another exciting aspect is that a ton of the produce in the store is actually grown on the Golden Door grounds.  Originally grown to feed guests of the retreat, they have now extended their bounty to the general public!

Purchase fresh eggs, artisanal foods, produce, beauty products and so many other delicious and exciting offerings.  One of the items they are most known for is their fresh bread which is brought out every Saturday morning.  I hear it goes quick though!

Their farm includes several dozen 30-year-old Manzanillo olive trees, 131 acres of citrus groves and over 75 acres of avocado trees.  They were also instrumental in helping to protect and preserve the area surrounding the Golden Door from being developed into hundreds of homes.

The Golden Door family is constantly striving to create a balanced ecosystem on both the land that surrounds them as well as the soil that grows their crops. By doing so, it creates a thriving biodiversity and fertile land. This helps to ensure nutrient and mineral-rich produce in every purchase we make!

While you're in the area, make sure to check out the Bonsall Bell Tent Glamping nearby!

* No pesticides or synthetic fertilizers. Natural enrichment methods keep their land productive and sustainable.
* Not just produce. Pick up their delicious preserves, cookies, peanut butter, potassium broth and olive oil.
* Golden Door eggs from chickens who eat organic and almost as well as their guests.

The manager of the country store, Scott!
