Stay in the Loop

A sad farewell to Local D’Lish

Sadly we will say goodby to Local D’Lish on Thursday, please take a moment to stop in on Thursday and say goodbye:

Dear Local D’Lish Family, 

Close to 8 years ago I opened Local D’Lish with the goal of helping people connect through the power of food. I wanted to highlight and feature local farmers and food artisans by building a community centered around slow and intentional  food. I feel confident that through my little “magical” store, Local D’Lish, “WE” have been able to do that.   

What an honor it has been to get to know all of you and introduce you to amazing local farmers, food artisans and chefs.  In the last 8 years we have launched many many foodie careers (especially for women), we have raised thousands of dollars for hundreds of organizations, we have had an incredible impact on the growth of the local food/farm to table movement here in the Twin Cities. Through endless social events, winter markets, neighborhood events and product launches, we have helped to grow this incredible North Loop neighborhood into a central part of the city’s culture

What a joy it has been to be a part of all of your lives and all of this wonderful celebration around food and community.  I have put my heart and soul into Local D’Lish and the North Loop, but it is time now for me to transition into something that will offer me more of a work/life balance.  Most of you have watched my family grow and you also know how important my girls are to me, owning a business takes such a huge commitment of time and resources. I am so incredibly proud of what I have created and nurtured in this little store but it is time for me to find a new career that will offer me more balance in my family life.   

In this spirit I have officially closed Local D’Lish and am officially searching for a new career chapter in my life.  To wind down the store, clear out my inventory and to celebrate all that we have accomplished I will host a final sale on Thursday, February 11 from 10am-7pm.  I hope you will be able to join me and my family to say goodbye while enjoying some great discounts on inventory, equipment and general merchandise.  Stop in to shop, share stories and give me a big hug.  Thank you for sharing this journey with me.  I genuinely treasure this experience.  

All my love,
