FoodEMarket is an online marketplace designed to bring people together who are looking to replace plants and ingredients from across the country with plants and ingredients from across town. We’re a place for local food producers, growers, community gardens and education centers to be seen by those who are demanding their product the most.
FoodEMarket is a response to the development of a fragile and unsustainable modern food system. Typical modern disconnected methods of food production and delivery are highly dependent on fossil fuels and long distances, producing an increasingly homogenous array of food products. These have been shown to have dubious and suspect ingredients that are providing us with less and less of the nourishment we need to be happily and healthily energetic and productive. We seek to combat these systemic issues in part by bringing together and strengthening the network of those seeking to grow and produce good food with those local culinary outlets that are now demanding this fresh, local and natural food for their menus and mouths. These outlets range from schools, day camps or churches to restaurants big and small.
