About Us

 We Bring Local to Everyone, Everywhere

Local is the New Global

We believe that you should know your farmer’s name. We believe that people who make things should have actual addresses, not just IP addresses. When you shop on Doorstep Market, you know that you’re supporting small businesses—and that your money stays in local economies. Hallelujah!

Curation is Not a Buzzword

In an age when literally everything is available online, how do you know where your stuff comes from? Who makes it? And where does your money go? That’s where we come in. Doorstep Market is an online marketplace identifying the very best of local goods and making those goods available to everyone, anywhere.

Our Mission is Audacious

We’re trying change the flow of money spent at online megamalls and redirect it toward excellent small businesses—without sacrificing any convenience. Founded by the publishers of some of your favorite local Edible publications, our jobs are to discover the best of regional Makers, growers, and artisans. Now we want to share them with you.

Doorstep Market is home to small-scale businesses who can furnish almost anything you need—farmers, fishers, woodworkers, distillers, charcuterie masters, oyster growers, canoe builders. You name it. And unlike other online marketplaces, not every business makes the cut. Our locally based editors and tastemakers vet everything you’ll find on our site. We make it our job to travel off the beaten path and share our own personal favorites, our exciting discoveries, and our best kept secrets.

We Have No Warehouse

We know that Makers are great at making things. Growers are great at growing things. Doorstep Market is a platform designed to share what they do with our eager audience. Plain and simple. Taking a cue from farmers markets and local crafts fairs, all sales go directly to the Maker, and they ship their goods directly to you.

We are Not a Tech Company

Unlike our competitors, we actually answer our emails personally. Like, from actual humans. Social media? That’s us too. If you’re a buyer or a Maker with questions, just drop us a line. Ask for Ethan J.
