The Source Makes a Big Move

Corning, NY - The Source at Factory No. 2, formerly Beyond Baskets, has made a big move both in location and by bringing many facets of the business under one name. With more than 40 years of history and dedication, the Dickerman family is proud to welcome the Corning community to their Grand celebration on Friday, November 13 and 14.

Located at 85 W. Market Street guests are invited to attend the Ribbon Cutting ceremony at 4pm on Friday, November 13, followed by a special menu, prizes, samples and a Make Your Own Chocolate Bar, one of the newest features at The Source. On Saturday, November 14 customers can experience local wine and beer tastings paired with chocolate or cheese, family friendly games, samples, prizes, the Make Your Own Chocolate Bar, and brunch with mimosas, lunch and dinner. The Source will be open from 8am-8pm on both days.

Laura Dickerman, co-owner of The Source at Factory No. 2 says, "Our new space is more than we ever imagined, we feel honored to be able to have moved into such a beautiful space, and we thank all of our customers for supporting us and allowing us to be a part of the community."

The business is now housed in the Hawkes Crystal Glass Factory No. 2, acting as inspiration for the name change, The Source at Factory No. 2. The interior has been artfully restored to its historic value, and the Dickermans have repurposed engraving tables for dining and display surfaces.

Focusing on a fresh menu that serves vegans, vegetarians, meat eaters, and a kids menu designed by kids, The Source offers the largest beverage menu featuring juice and smoothies, and fresh brewed ice tea. For years the Dickermans have offered decadent handmade chocolate treats, but now customers can try their hand at it at the Make Your Own Chocolate Bar!

The Source is rooted in a long history, beginning with a natural food and cheese store first opened by Gary Dickerman in 1976 on Market Street, followed by a basketizing business founded by Cynthia Dickerman in 1996, accompanied by a handmade line of bath and body products developed by daughter Laura Dickerman, which then grew to include a cafe and juice bar inspired by fresh produce and ingredients in 2012, previously located just across the street at 88 W. Market Street. Future plans include a local wine and beer tasting bar. The Dickerman family prides themselves on offering a fun and innovative eating and shopping experience for the community.
