Midwest Pantry is a collective of local food companies based in the Midwest. It is our mission to ensure that the local food movement is sustainable. We work to accomplish this mission by creating a healthy community of local producers with shelf-ready products and connecting this community to buyers in the following ways:

Artisan Directory

1Midwest Pantry’s Artisan Directory is the source for local food in the Midwest. Artisan Producers want to be on it. Buyers shop it. All producers that appear on the Artisan Directly must fill out an application, complete a review of their ingredients list, and be located in the Midwest.

Online Ordering System

2Wholesale buyers can purchase artisan products directly from a select group of producers from the Artisan Directly with Midwest Pantry’s Buyer Order Form. A login is required, wholesale buyers please contact us to request access. Artisan producers who’d like to be listed can request an application here.
