Olympia Local Foods - $25 Giveaway!

I have to share this little gem with you. What is that gem, you ask? It is Olympia Local Foods! I absolutely love doing as much of my grocery shopping through them as possible.

What is Olympia Local Foods? Here is how they describe themselves: "Olympia Local Foods is like a grocery store, but more local -- like a CSA, but more flexible -- like a farmer's market, but more convenient."

I have been using Olympia Local Foods for about 9 months now and I love the ability to select my groceries online. As a mom of little ones, I love the convenience of shopping whenever the time is right for me. I can browse and add items to my cart at my own convenience (at least until Tuesday morning at 9:00 a.m.). Then I pick them up on Thursday (between 3:00 and 7:00 p.m.). So easy!

Another thing I love is that Olympia Local Foods has taken the time to find local farms, dairies, bakeries and other yummy food businesses. I know many of the grocery stores in town carry local products, but I frequently am not sure which items are local and which ones are not. Everything Olympia Local Foods carries is local! All of the businesses offer quality (organic/natural) products that taste amazing.

Do you already shop at Olympia Local Foods? Here is a chance for a huge discount off of your next purchase! Have you thought about it but not tried it out yet? What a great opportunity to try it out!

  2. Alissa Helton says: "I have never heard of Olympia local foods, but since Olympia is still my home away from home I would love to try it. I hope I win!!!" (I am sharing about your giveaway on facebook too.)

  3. I love OLF's!!!!! I look forward to my Raw milk every week. I hope i win this time!!! I just bought a strawberry Necklace yesterday :)

  4. I've only used OLF once for a huge local flour order, but I keep meaning to try. I usually only remember on Tuesday at 9:30 AM or after I've already done a huge shopping trip.

  5. Love Olympia Local Foods Love the raw milk :)

  6. I thought I already posted a if this is a duplicate, SORRY!

    What I love about OLF are the owners...two of the most special people I have ever met!

  7. I'm a follower. I'd have to say that my favorite local business is my husband's business, the Seafood Connection in Westport (a shameless plug, I know :). It's a cute little store down on Dock 8 that sells local seafood straight from the fisherman (often my husband :) to the customer. ANYWAY, I'll go post this on facebook and I'll put it on my blog as well.

  8. I've never heard of OLF before. Where are they located? Is this the same as Olympia Food Coop? I'd love to win just to try something new. Thanks for the information. I'm now a new follower of your blog.

  9. Jeannette, the Olympia Local Foods (OLF) pick up site is at Olympia Wood Flooring Supply (2442 Mottman Road SW Tumwater, WA 98512) basically across the street from SPSCC.

  10. How did I miss that they existed? What a great idea and it sounds pretty user friendly too. Great giveaway Tanya! Too bad we live so far away :)

  11. REALLY enjoy OLF's sourcing of great products from fresh chicken to grains. Surprises me sometimes the variety of local products they have found! My favorite item's have been their turkey and the raw milk from Cozy Valley. One or two words for them? Passionate, dedicated, f.r.i.e.n.d.l.y.

    Another favorite local business is The Fresh Approach down at the Farmer's Market. Most of my produce for preserving has come through them in the last 4 years. They treat their produce AND their customers very well! :-)

  12. I've never tried OLF but would like to. Batdorf is one of my favorite local businesses!
