Taking the Market to Your Door

Local Harvest Delivery Brings the Farmers Markets to You


Perhaps the lure of the Saturday Farmers Market is never as great for you as a Mountain Drive jog or a few more zzzz’s without having to head to work. Still, you know how great it is to have all that fresh produce-our local, beautiful bounty waiting to make you healthy and hale (for more running or snoozing).

That’s where Julie Beaumont and Sarah Coffman step in. They’ve created Local Harvest Delivery (845-8605, localharvestdelivery.com) to bring the best of the market to your door weekly. And they do mean the best, as their providers include BD, Roots, Tom Shepherd, McGrath, Tutti Frutti, etc.-a veritable who’s who of Santa Barbara growing.

But there’s more, as Local Harvest Delivery also can bring local items such as coffee, bread, and eggs, making its Saturday drop-off a visit from the store you wish our town had. The box comes in different sizes, plus you can add on items, so it’s easy enough to personalize based on your taste and needs. As Beaumont and Coffman put it on their Web site: “[We] are proud to offer life-changing services that will result in healthier people, a healthier environment, and a stronger local economy and community.”
