WALLA WALLA, WA (PRWEB) April 19, 2006 –-
A recent survey conducted on a popular recipe web site showed that for 29% of the 8,000 respondents, over-processed foods was the primary issue of concern. The trend towards incorporating wholesome, less processed foods into the American diet has fueled a simultaneous rise in the number of Farmer’s markets. For many they remain the best place to obtain minimally processed home style foods. But most markets are open only during the summer. Building a sustainable business on a few months’ sales is challenging for these small artisan producers.
Rare Finds, Inc. introduces a new online store that makes it easy for U.S. consumers to find and purchase minimally processed products year round. “Our goal is to support these producers because these people believe in healthy food production methods – like the use of fresh natural ingredients, organics, eliminating additives and preservatives, and cooking in small batches,” said Rare Finds President, Kris Reed. “These artisans are squeezed out of the market by commercial giants to the American consumers’ detriment. We’ve created a more consistent marketplace for artisans to help them build their business.”
Rare Finds searches for artisans who are using the highest quality ingredients and are passionate about the foods they create. They taste and recipe test every item. The Rare Finds site includes information on each food producer, how they create their products, and their food philosophy. Creative descriptions and food trivia, along with recipes and serving suggestions make the site a fun and educational place to shop. The variety of available products and ingredients will appeal to cooks from the novice to the gourmet. Rare Finds offers a custom gift basket service as well.
Rare Finds is continually searching for new artisan foods. You can visit Rare Finds at http://www.rarefindsinc.com.
