This initiative is driven by the overwhelming love and demand from our esteemed guests who have cherished the unique and authentic local products during their stays with us. Now, you can savour the same exquisite tastes and flavours in the comfort of your own home by simply visiting our online store at

At Areca County, we have always been dedicated to offering our guests an immersive experience that captures the essence of Honnavar’s rich cultural and culinary heritage. Our guests have often expressed their delight in discovering and indulging in the local delicacies and traditional products that we meticulously curate. The introduction of our online store is a natural extension of our commitment to providing an authentic experience, allowing you to bring a piece of Areca County home with you, no matter where you are.

One of the standout products that have garnered immense popularity among our guests is the jackfruit papad. This traditional snack, made from the region’s bountiful jackfruit harvest, is a crunchy and delicious treat that perfectly encapsulates the flavors of Karnataka. The jackfruit papad is not just a snack but a testament to the ingenuity and culinary expertise of local artisans who transform this humble fruit into a gourmet delight. Each bite offers a burst of flavor that is both unique and reminiscent of the rich culinary traditions that define the region.

Our selection of local spices is another highlight of the Areca County online store. Sourced from the fertile lands of Karnataka, these spices are a staple in many traditional recipes and are known for their exceptional quality and potency. From the aromatic cardamom and robust black pepper to the fiery red chilies, our spice collection promises to add a touch of authentic flavor to your culinary creations. These spices are not only essential ingredients in many local dishes but also reflect the agricultural richness and biodiversity of the region.

Cashews from Honnavar are renowned for their superior quality and taste, and our online store features some of the finest varieties available. Whether you prefer them raw, roasted, or spiced, our cashews are a delightful snack and a versatile ingredient in both sweet and savory dishes. The cashews we offer are sourced directly from local farmers, ensuring that you receive the freshest and most flavorful nuts. This direct sourcing also supports the local economy and promotes sustainable farming practices.

Another product that has won the hearts of our guests is the hand-churned ghee. This traditional method of making ghee involves churning butter obtained from cow’s milk until it transforms into a golden, aromatic, and nutrient-rich product. The ghee made at Areca County is cherished for its purity and rich flavor, making it an indispensable addition to any kitchen. It can be used in a variety of culinary applications, from sautéing vegetables to adding a finishing touch to a bowl of hot rice, enhancing the taste and nutritional value of your meals.

Wood pressed oil, another gem in our collection, is made using traditional cold-pressing methods that retain the oil’s natural nutrients and flavor. Unlike commercially processed oils, wood pressed oil is free from chemicals and additives, making it a healthier choice for cooking. Our range includes coconut oil, sesame oil, and groundnut oil, each with its own distinct flavor and health benefits. These oils not only contribute to the authentic taste of traditional Karnataka cuisine but also support the wellbeing of those who consume them.

Liquid jaggery, or ‘kaakvi,’ is a natural sweetener that has been a part of Karnataka’s culinary heritage for centuries. Unlike refined sugar, liquid jaggery retains all the natural nutrients found in sugarcane juice, making it a healthier alternative. Its rich, caramel-like flavor can enhance a variety of dishes, from desserts to beverages. At Areca County, we source our liquid jaggery from local producers who follow traditional methods of preparation, ensuring that you receive a product that is both authentic and of the highest quality.

Our selection of snacks and pickles also brings the vibrant flavors of Karnataka right to your doorstep. From spicy banana chips to tangy mango pickles, these products offer a taste of the region’s diverse culinary landscape. Each snack and pickle is made using traditional recipes passed down through generations, capturing the essence of local flavors and culinary techniques. These items are perfect for those who wish to explore and enjoy the unique tastes of Karnataka from afar.
