The Sipping Cottage, a gourmet coffee and tea company, won the inaugural favorite vendor contest at the Farmer’s Market located in the Shoppes at Vanderbilt according to market manager Laura Sloat.
The contest was designed to encourage customers who support local businesses at the year-round farmer’s market to select their favorite vendor. Shoppers cast their vote via the market’s Facebook page and the winning vendor received a $125 gift package.

Founded in 1990, The Sipping Cottage is the brainchild of Diane and her husband Danny Rosolen. Originally a gourmet coffee, tea and gift basket business,The Sipping Cottage grew in popularity and evolved into a 3,500 square foot retail shop in Bayside, New York across the street from the landmark Donovan’s Pub. The shop thrived for five years and requiring more space, relocated to Bell Boulevard, one half block away from the Long Island Railroad.

In 2011, The Sipping Cottage began its e-commerce offering the finest Arabica coffee beans and freshly ground coffees, loose teas, and accessories like French presses, hand painted Turkish coffee sets, espresso sets, travel mugs, honey dippers and decorative mesh tea balls. The Sipping Cottage served corporate accounts such as MTV, Coca Cola, Hugo Boss and Chevrolet and added a bridal division.
