Faraday's is proud to be Austin's largest Kitchen Store and is 100% locally owned and operated. The store hosts 5500 different culinary tools from over 300 manufacturers. We feature a full range of everyday kitchen and specialty gourmet items, and by providing a Good-Better-Best product assortment, we work to ensure that every cook will find what they need.  We keep our prices at the manufacturer's LOWEST POSSIBLE PRICE all the time, so you know you're getting the best value for your money. 

Outdoor cooking in Texas is a must! So, you'll also find a large assortment of BBQ Tools, Lump Charcoal, Wood Pellets, Wood Chunks & Chips, Green Mountain Pellet Grills, Big Green Eggs and Outdoor Kitchens.

We look to source merchandise from all around the world. Our bakeware department hosts a majority of made in USA products, our cutlery is from Japan and Germany, and our cookware is from all over Europe.  It’s truly an international marketplace. 

We are always looking for Made in Texas goods, and host products currently from several local based companies like; Third Coast Coffee, Chateau Spill, Spicewood Foods, Gourmet Texas Pasta, Texas Hill Country Olive Oil, San Saba Pecan Company, Meat Church Rubs and many local cookbooks.

In addition to our amazing merchandise, we offer Cooking Classes and Workshops, a Summer Chef Camp for kids, an online store and frequent product demonstrations and Knife Sharpening events. We also host private classes and team-building events for corporate clients. 

All of us who work here are avid foodies who know our products inside and out.  Most importantly, we take the time to talk with you, to make sure each customer leaves with exactly what they need- and a smile on their face.
