What do you get if you marry Silicon Valley tech, innovation, and business savvy with the local, artisan food movement?

Think gourmet geeks running a one-stop online shop designed so that food producers and farmers can sell directly to a public with a seemingly endless appetite for good grub grown and produced close to home. The Internet food hub includes fishmongers and meat sellers, gluten-free bakers, baby-food makers, picklers, preservers, and pie purveyors, Yes, that’s right peeps: A subscription for fruit-filled flaky pastry is just a mouse click away.

Meet Rob Spiro and Alon Salant, co-founders of Good Eggs, a year-old start-up based in San Francisco’s Mission District — a breeding ground for new food entrepreneurs — in my story for the Bay Area News Group. And find out why local food producers — like Three Babes Bakeshop — are signing up for this new service and what consumers think too.

My favorite behind-the-story morsel that didn’t make it into the piece: A couple who recently split up, and now live in separate locations in the Bay Area, still share a pie subscription. If that’s not a testament to the tasty comfort found in the form of handmade pies by the bakeshop babes I’m not sure what is. Enjoy.
