Local Food Entrepreneurs
Are you ready to turn your good food idea into a business? Let us help!
The Commercial Processing Kitchen at Local Roots was opened in 2014 as the final piece of the original vision for the Local Roots Market and Café project. The Kitchen gives local food entrepreneurs a place to process, preserve, and add value to products to start or expand an existing food business. We are proud to have offered a space to serve as a catalyst to grow local food businesses. The 2000 sq. ft. onsite facility houses the equipment and licensing needed to make food products for sale at Local Roots Markets…or around the country! Our staff is knowledgeable and hands-on and can help answer questions that any startup or small business will have.
Equipment available to process your favorite recipes for sale in our market and beyond.
Walk-in cooler and freezer available.
Capture the harvest for sale during the farmer's market season and in the colder months as well.
Licensed so products can be sold at Local Roots or around the country.
