The Market is your source to the best the Midwest has to offer. All our vendors are individually vetted small-batch producers, based right here in the Midwest, to encourage a healthy and local food system.

We are currently open to the public as well as offering Curbside Pickup and delivery via Mercato.

Connecting you to the best of the Midwest

Local Foods stocks only products created or grown in three ways:
