Meet the Locals

Being a local at New Seasons Market is a good thing—it means you’re one of the thousands of people in our community who make really good food. Supporting local ranchers, fishermen, makers and growers is the way we champion the regional food economy. It’s how we encourage local innovation and food-based entrepreneurism. And it’s how we build and foster that connection between you and the people who work hard to bring us such delicious food.

That's why we’d rather have a 50-year relationship than a 5-year contract. Because at the end of the day, these locals aren’t just vendors. They’re people, and they’re our friends. And we want them to thrive—now, and for generations to come.
