It is our mission to provide the freshest, locally sourced products, showcasing our area’s farmers and the commitment we share to bring people a natural way of providing for their families.
For the health of our environment and your loved ones, we are passionate about bridging the gap between you and our local farmers.
Before Local Fare, Chris was an executive chef. We were always on the hunt for fresh and sustainable food. The best place to get high-quality, low-mileage food is from local farms. It supported our community and also kept the dining room full! It became apparent that the low cost and high-quality local food was not only hard to find, but the alternative commercially sold produce was astronomically priced!
In 2011 Local Fare was born. We were hit even harder with these realities when, as young parents, our son was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. Processed foods were shutting his body down. We could hardly afford to feed him healthy food on our income. So, it pushed us even harder to make local fresh food accessible AND affordable! It is a cause near and dear to our hearts and we are thankful every day for our community who make it possible.

Why We Eat Local
Good for the environment
Cuts down your carbon footprint by having less miles on your plate. Eating local means less transportation by getting your from food right here in our region instead of something traveling halfway around the world before it finally makes it to your table.
Boosts our Local economy
Eating local is great for your health but it also keeps your money right here in our community. Whether it be one of our many local farmers or producers or our dedicated staff members we strive to support and grow the local market. We work hard to make sure that the ones who produce the food rather than those who market, distribute and label it earn what is rightfully theirs.
Saves you time & money
No more gassing up your vehicle, driving to the store and standing in line just to get something that is overpriced and already on the way out. Your customizable local bounty will just show up on your door step just picked with recipes available to show you how to use it.
