The mission of Always Local is simple and can be summarized in three steps

  1. Connect local growers, producers, and makers with new, local customers
  2. Create safe, contactless access to fresh local foods and hand-made products within communities
  3. Strengthen local communities and economies, support local agriculture and artisan entrepreneurs, and empower consumers to shop small and local by providing a centralized, easy to use, platform

Who we are

Always Local was founded by a group of friends who wished that it was easier to find and purchase more amazing, locally-produced goods and products. They are highly motivated to source as much of the goods and products that they need on a daily basis from producers in their local region. Among other reasons, they know how beneficial shopping local is to local economies, how this offsets carbon emissions via a much smaller supply chain, and how locally produced goods tend to be fresher and higher in quality.

Connecting growers with buyers

Recognizing that there is not currently a centralized channel for sourcing goods in this local way, they realized that amongst them, they possessed the design, engineering, and business skills necessary to craft a platform that would meet this need. After some research and deliberation, they committed themselves to bringing Always Local to life.

Coming soon

We are still heads-down and hard at work crafting an initial release of the platform for a beta release in the spring of 2021. If you are interested in participating in the beta as a vendor or customer, consider subscribing to our email list to be kept informed on progress and be the first to know when the beta release is available.
