Jeremy Thiesen is committed to eating local food, and he wanted to help others eat the products of local artisans.

“It was really quite difficult in many aspects to buy local, especially in Colorado when in winter all the farmers markets close down,” he says.

While a good number of food entrepreneurs have made it into Whole Foods markets, and smaller producers get a start in such local stores as Lucky’s and Alfalfa’s markets, Thiesen hoped to create a way for small-batch local food makers to reach customers via the web.
