STARTUP STORY Charlotte and Shai started selling olives and pickles bulk style from barrels at NE Florida farmers’ markets six years ago. A few years ago, they also began selling jarred pickles at local natural food stores like Native Sun and Grassroots. Now they are in 30+ stores throughout Jacksonville, Savannah, Gainesville and Orlando.

WHY LOCAL? “A true livelihood in small food depends on a local system that interconnects thriving farmers, creative food-producers, smart + supportive retailers and bought-in consumers. When a robust local food system is in place, more economic opportunity for food entrepreneurs and better product choices for consumers means our region becomes a more interesting, artful, prosperous and fun place to live.”
