The Local Palate, a Southern food culture magazine, earlier this month launched the Local Palate Marketplace, an e-commerce site that offers a selection of artisan goods for your table, bar, kitchen, and pantry.
Here's how the magazine describes the new marketplace:
For nearly 10 years, the Local Palate has shared stories of Southern makers, products, ingredients, and more. Today, the magazine comes to life through the Local Palate Marketplace, an e-commerce destination featuring artisan goods from makers across the South. The team has scouted for each item and handpicked the products on the site, from local snacks, sweets, and spices to handcrafted cutlery and cookware. Across the site, they also showcase the region's most talented makers by sharing the stories behind the people and communities that define the South.
The site features a range of vendors who represent the best in their industries and region, as well as many well-known and beloved brands. Under categories such as Kitchen, Bar, Pantry, and Gifts, shoppers will find items such as sauces and finishing salts from J.Q. Dickinson Salt-Works; hand-painted confections by JARDÍ Chocolates; durable chef's knives from Middleton Made Knives; bar cordials and syrups by Liber & Co.; all-natural honey from AR's Hot Southern Honey; and much more.
"We're excited to launch our new Marketplace, which features the many artisans who define our region, from expert knife-makers to quail farmers, sauce experts to chocolatiers," said publisher and CEO Joe Spector. "The site puts their products directly into shoppers' hands while highlighting their stories, just like we do through the pages of the magazine and our online channels. This is a natural extension of our brand."
