our purveyors


Here at doodles, we source as many ingredients as possible from Kentucky farmers, makers and purveyors. That means our ingredients are fresh, most often being picked up from the farm several times a week. It also means that our menu may change from time to time as the seasons change and ingredients' availability changes. Take a look at some of our regular food sources below, and follow us on social media to see other seasonal sources..
