Relay Foods Comes to Raleigh
The Triangle has seen great momentum in the local food movement in recent years, and today a new business has come to Raleigh that may contribute to the development of a local food system and provides another point of sale for local, sustainable growers and food businesses. For shoppers, it’s another point of access and convenience for such products. Relay Foods is an online marketplace for local, sustainable and everyday groceries, stocking items from eco-friendly paper towels to local produce and other locally prepared foods, such as Nello’s Sauce , made in Hillsborough, and Maple View Farms, a dairy in Hillsborough with hormone and antibiotic-free products. Relay Foods options include organic, local, vegan, dairy free, non-GMO and gluten free. Relay kicks off today, June 16, with 3 locations in Raleigh, all open from 4-7 pm on designated days of the week. Pick-up locations include:
- the Boylan neighborhood at CompostNow at BLDG Co. on Mondays 706 Mountford Ave., Raleigh
- the Allister North Apartments in North Hills on Wednesdays, 430 Allister Dr., Raleigh and
- Parkridge Lane at Fred Fletcher Park on Fridays on Washington St. near the intersection of Nicholwood Dr., Raleigh
Each location will have music, samples, free iced coffee, and giveaways for the kick off day: today, June 16 at Boylan, June 18 at Allister North Apartments and June 20 at Parkridge Lane. To celebrate, first-time customers can receive $20 off orders of $50 or more when they use the code EATLOCALRALEIGH.
