06 Jul LocalsOwn
If you can’t make it to The Market this week, LocalsOwn is here to ensure you still get your local produce: it’s all the delicious food of The Market, but delivered right to your door! Place your grocery order online anytime of the week and it will be delivered on Thursday night for a delivery fee of $4.99 (or free with a purchase over $35). You can order fresh produce like broccoli, oranges, cheese, or honey from 12 different local farmers. If you can’t decide, try a LocalsOwn grab box! The contents of a grab box are hand picked by LocalsOwn around a chosen theme like Fruit Box, Master Salad Box, Raw Snacks Box, and more. For a fun and fresh surprise, try ordering a Complete Mystery Box! Or, if you have already perfected your grocery order, sign up for a subscription and have the same produce delivered to you at a chosen interval.
After graduating from Cal Poly SLO with a degree in Biomedical Engineering, Founder Joey Lyman realized the majority of the healthcare system is focused on treating preventable diseases that can be mitigated by a healthy diet. To address this, he set out to foster “a healthier planet, healthier people, and a healthier food system.” With LocalsOwn, his ultimate goal is to make it easier for people to shop local and make healthier food choices. Working directly with farmers allows him to increase transparency in the food system, making sure each of his customers know exactly where their food is coming from. If you are interested in Lyman’s story, stop by the LocalsOwn booth sometime at The Market! In addition to delivery, they are hoping to establish a “Veggie Valet” where you can drop off your groceries while you enjoy The Market and pick them up later. Place your order online today and let The Market come to you with LocalsOwn.
