About Us

Kitchen | Pantry | Cookbooks | Community

Home Ec is an indie kitchen shop founded by Carynn Pinckney on April 1, 2019 in Little Italy, San Diego. We sell cookbooks, pantry goods and kitchen tools.

Our products are sourced with equity and community in mind and we are proud of every item on our shelves. We love working with other small businesses and educating our customers with personalized product expertise.

We highlight local businesses and foster a thriving community of food people. With pop-ups, we host local chefs and creatives in our space to share their work with the community. We also act as a pickup point/hub for other small food & bev businesses in our area. 

We're grateful to be here and hope you connect with our shop, whether in the store or online.
