Find Organic Food Online: Best Artisan Foods
Favorite Little Discoveries for a Lotta Something Special...
Indulge in some of the best organic food online created with honest to goodness real ingredients by honest to goodness real people. These small artisans are creating and restoring food as it is meant to be enjoyed and savored. They make extraordinary organic food gifts, gluten free foods, or simply homemade favorites like mom used to make.
A big shout-out to the now defunct Foodzie for turning us on to many of these super-duper standouts from small producers. Natural and organic food online brought to us by each food's actual creator and produced with "clean ingredients" and so much more.
A current purveyor for discovering extra special favorites in organic food online is Abe's Market, now Direct Eats. You'll meet small, creative food producers and farmers while getting re-acquainted with some old favorites as well as some downright daring new tastes -- all while learning the stories behind each extraordinary treat. And our newest find for indie food is Mouth -- see why here.
Artisan Favorites from Small Makers
So far, among our very favorite small-batch discoveries for natural and organic food online are:
Amella Passion Fruit Caramels from El Segundo, California: buttery smooth with just a tease of tang!
- Zürsun Heirloom Beans from Twin Falls, Idaho: now this is a bean! A really, really good bean, no comparison!
Blossom Bluff Sun Dried Peaches & Nectarines from Parlier, California: a delicious departure from raisins and apricots, hand-sliced and so pretty.
- Susan Rice Truffled Popcorn from Southern Pines, North Carolina: sounds highfalutin, but it's absolutely "down-home", addictive and quite possibly a new southern staple for our farmers -- move over tobacco!
La Châtelaine Parisian Mendiants from Bozeman, Montana: there's chocolate and then there's CHOCOCLATE, these combos are outrageously good!
The Spice Lab Sea Salts from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida: who knew so little could add so much in so many different ways? Amazing!

Tupelo HoneyPax from Tallahassee, Florida: Honey is a true wonder food and this brother-sister team beautifully and respectfully captures for the rest of us the rare, cherished treasure of all honeys, Tupelo Honey. HoneyPax maintains a dedicated authenticity through and through. From the harvests of its raw, pure, unprocessed honey within the pristine ecosystem of the Apalachicola River Basin to its 100% post-consumer recycled, carbon neutral packaging for convenient little packets to tuck in your pocket or slip into your gym bag. Hive codes let you trace your honey packet to the exact bee yard where it was harvested. Make no mistake, Tupelo Honey is something special -- taste it and believe it!

Peeled Snacks' Pine-4-Pineapple from Brooklyn, New York: this is tropical taste captured! Organic and loaded with flavor and vitamins with no added sugar.
Flamous Falafel Chips from San Gabriel, California: our new favorite chip and a definite. A Mavenjoy (Gluten Free) Best Pick! Stupendous and satisfying on its own and really kicks up dips and spreads too. And...full of protein and fiber, low sodium and NO wheat, dairy, trans fat or artificial anything!
Bobo's Coconut Oat Bar from Boulder, Colorado: elevates the oat bar to indulgent super treat status. Simply so good, so moist and all natural, wheat-free and vegan to boot!
Rosemary Simple Squares from Chicago, Illinois: What a deLIGHTful find these little nut and herb bars are! These are the perfect holdover snack when your stomach's rumbling or as a pre-workout fortifier. They've got just the right sweet with a hint of herb that may sound peculiar but works beautifully. They're free of wheat, gluten, dairy, soy and refined sugars. Comes in Coconut, Cinnamon and Sage too.
Serendipity 3's Frrrozen Hot Chocolate from New York, New York: Oh yes they did! A hot chocolate milkshake with all of the rich chocolate taste from its custom blend of 14 exotic cocoas and all of the creaminess but with out a smidgen of ice cream. Simply blend with milk and ice and I kid you not, you'll have the milkshake of all milkshakes.
