Countless artisans and independent makers across the country are creating small-batch food and beverage products to be enjoyed by the public. But for a small maker in one city to broaden his reach, he might need a little help. That’s where Hatchery comes in.
Hatchery offers customers an online marketplace for small-batch, artisan ingredients and condiments that might be otherwise hard to find. Along with the option to purchase locally made items, the site offers recipes and articles that highlight certain products as well as profiles on the makers behind each item for sale. In one trip to this online marketplace, patrons can pick up ginger syrup from Morris Kitchen in Brooklyn, New York, sriracha salt from Preservation & Co. in Sacramento, California, and hibiscus honey from Everyday Eclectic in Chattanooga, Tennessee, just to name a few.
Not sure what to buy yet? Hatchery also offers a selection of tasting boxes, a monthly parcel of small-batch goodness delivered right to your door. A recent box we received featured five sample-sized packets and jars including chai pear shrub from Arlington, Virginia’s Element [Shrub] and datil pepper seasoning from Del Viejo in St. Augustine, Florida. Each box includes a tasting guide, introducing you to the makers behind each item and offering suggestions on how to use each product.
