ASHEVILLE, NC (September 24, 2019) – Mother Earth Food and French Broad Food Co-Op announce a new partnership that brings local foods and products the Asheville community knows and loves directly to front doorsteps. Mother Earth Food sources the healthiest options from over 50 regional farms and local food artisans for weekly deliveries in the Asheville area – like a farmer’s market on wheels – and now offers over 175 of French Broad Food Co-Op’s products for delivery, with more choices available in the near future.

“With so many options for sourcing groceries and fresh produce, our goal is to make the choice of buying local as convenient as possible while supporting regional farmers and businesses in our local food culture,” says Janelle Tatum, CEO at Mother Earth Foods. “French Broad Food Co-Op has already been doing this for nearly 45 years, and we are excited to pair our missions.”

Tatum also says they’re hoping the convenience of shopping for French Broad Food Co-Op groceries online will encourage shoppers who might otherwise be deterred by traffic congestion and limited parking to buy local food.

Mother Earth Food’s delivery process is simple and efficient. Customers sign up for the service at and order weekly customizable produce bins and groceries by noon every Tuesday. Mother Earth Food does the rest – picking up local foods and products from as close to home as possible and delivering them on customer’s scheduled delivery day.
