Thank you for your interest!

 

Our mission is to strengthen the local food economy by facilitating

the sale and distribution of locally and ethically-produced foods.

 

For the buyer, it means one-stop shopping through an easy online platform for all of your authentically local goods.  For the supplier, this means access to wider markets and unloading the burden of sales, invoicing, and distribution.  

Right now, out of your commitment to local, you make the sacrifice of ordering from a long list of direct suppliers.  The least we can do is make the process easier for you. 

How much does it cost?

You will always have two options for delivery:

  1. Flat fee determined by our cost to deliver.

  2. Free delivery with minimum order determined by our cost.

How does it work?

  1. The firm order window closes each Friday by midnight.

  2. You can request to add items through Sunday evening.

  3. Delivery is each Tuesday.

  4. Payment Due on Delivery.

Sampling

We offer sampling services to our suppliers.  When we sample products, everyone wins.

 

 
 

Ethics & Transparency

You can rest easy knowing this distribution mechanism exists for the sole purpose of facilitating the exchange of local goods.  The purpose of its existence is not to enrich itself or any individual business and it commits to remaining impartial in all exchanges. Operating a platform for sales creates an opportunity to use the system to one’s own personal benefit, but this degrades the trust in the platform itself and the well-being of the community as a whole.  We take the responsibility seriously and are taking steps to keep ourselves honest and ensure your trust. 

 

Our business model is designed so that we share the cost of delivery, making it more affordable for each of us.  After covering expenses, we offer a share of the net earnings proportionate to each supplier's sales.  Our books are open to our suppliers to ensure they are receiving a fair share of the profit.

Talk of the Tao

is often bland and flavorless.

But travelers always stop for

good  music and good food.
