Join the Directory

We Believe when you want to go far, go together.

Welcome to the first online directory for authentic and sustainable food and drink producers. Do you sometimes feel like a needle in a haystack? Our growing audience of users are searching for businesses just like yours. They are eco-conscious and ready to support the businesses that fit their value for authentic, sustainable, and socially responsible.

Add your business to The Local Dish easy-search directory and stand out with the community of artisanal, craft producers who are taking steps on the sustainability path.

We know you have other directory listing options. On The Local Dish, your story is the inspiration. Even with popular search sites, food seekers find it difficult to easily locate businesses and products that match their values and lifestyle preference for transparency, sustainability, authenticity, and handcrafted, locally sourced food and beverage.  They want to support businesses that care about community, collaboration, the earth and each other.

Here are the categories that customers are searching:

  • Bakeries
  • Beer, cocktail and wine bars
  • Breweries
  • Cheesemakers
  • Chocolatiers
  • Coffee roasters
  • Distilleries
  • Farms, ranches and CSA’s
  • Farmers markets
  • Food trucks
  • Grocery stores (with a local products focus)
  • Beer, wine and spirits retail shops
  • Restaurants and cafes
  • Specialty artisanal products
  • Wineries

The Guide is your home to gain visibility as a group in the marketplace. The geo-location directory, events calendar and content platform are designed to put your business front and center for consumers, with connection in mind.

So, we brought easy search to authentic, handcrafted product and experiences in a mobile responsive guide for discovery….at home and on the road.

The Guide easily reaches a self-identified audience of locals and visitors who want to taste the local culture with the information they need to make buying decisions.
