Small Companies Doing It Right

November 28, 2015

When we talk about small businesses and shopping locally, we think about the real engines of our economy: the workers. They’re an essential component in crafting products that you can feel good about. In support of them, we want you to check out some good buys in celebration of Small Business Saturday! Below are some that lift up values like small-batch production, locally sourced ingredients, and avenues for small farmers to sustain their livelihoods. Taste the fair-food difference from these small companies doing good in the world.

Fresh jams
Whether you prefer savory, spicy, or sweet, we’ve got a jam to suit you! Try flavors like blueberry bourbon, raspberry jalapeño, rum banana, and peach sriracha. Made in small batches with fresh, all-natural ingredients.

Equal Exchange hot cocoa
Warm up this winter while you support fair-trade cooperatives! Now available in a spicy dark blend, sure to turn up the heat. 

Live Love Pop
This company was a 2014 Food Finalist in Martha Stewart’s American Made competition. Who would have thought that a few simple, all-natural ingredients could come together so deliciously? (And did we mention healthy? Only 35 calories per cup.)
