Here are just a couple of the many wholesale customers who ordered fresh food from local farms through Market Mobile this week!
We at Area Four believe that great food comes from great ingredients, and those products that are raised and harvested locally, in a sustainable manner, will not only taste better but will also be better for the environment, the local economy and our health. We believe that it’s important to know where our food comes from, to be comfortable knowing that we can trust what we cook, serve and eat. We also believe that our children should have the opportunity to enjoy these foods for generations to come while learning the importance of preserving local farms, ranches and fishing grounds. Without the contributions of producers who are as passionate about what they do as we are about what we do, we would be a much inferior restaurant. In a show of support, appreciation, and awe, we proudly present some of the farms, ranches, seafood purveyors and artisanal producers who every day help make us a better restaurant group.
Myers Produce is a regional distributor based in Northern Vermont. We operate year-round, and we have been in operation since November 2013. We offer growers & producers the opportunity to sell us food that we resell (distribution) as well as the service of transportation to direct customers of their own (freight). We purchase vegetables, fruit, eggs, grains, meat, cheese, and added value products from growers and producers within our region. All of our sources are located in the Northeast, as a rule. The vast majority of our produce is grown on small, organic farms in Vermont and Western Massachusetts. We sell to wholesale customers in New York City, the Hudson Valley, and throughout Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Vermont. Our customers are all types of businesses, including retail stores, coops, restaurants, online retailers, caterers, hotels, fast casual lunch chains, corporate offices, and institutions.
