Locally sourcing as many of our ingredients as possible affects our menu in several ways. First, we know where our food comes from and the farmer who grew it. Second, our menu changes with the seasons. You will find that in the winter, broccoli and cauliflower, for example, make only limited appearances and carrots, potatoes, turnips and other root vegetables take center stage.
HERBAL ALCHEMY TEA
In addition to organic chai, green, and black teas, Figg’s Ordinary proudly offers custom blended herbal teas from local herbal apothecary, Herbal Alchemy.
Herbal Alchemy is a boutique herbal apothecary specializing in custom formulations and hand-crafted products to support wellness at all stages of life.

In our work and partnerships, we are committed to sustainable practices that minimize our ecological footprint and promote a thriving, resilient local community."
Located in Chestertown, Maryland, Herbal Alchemy is the heart of the clinical practice of Deborah Mizeur and Krista Lamoreaux who each hold a Master of Science degree in Herbal Medicine. Through this venture they hope to empower others with the ancient wisdom of herbal medicines to enable and promote self care.
