Food Hub

How It Works

  1. Farmers Connect with FDE: Local farmers partner with Feast Down East by listing their products in our Online Marketplace. This digital platform is updated in real-time to reflect the current inventory, giving farmers the flexibility to showcase their fresh, local produce, fruits, meats, eggs, and value-added products.

  2. Customers Make Purchases: Local restaurants, grocers, institutions, community organizations, and individuals browse our Online Marketplace, selecting from a wide range of fresh, locally sourced produce and other products. By purchasing through FDE, they are directly supporting local agriculture and contributing to a sustainable food system.

  3. FDE Facilitates Delivery: Once orders are placed, Feast Down East aggregates the products at our USDA and GAP certified Food Hub in Burgaw, NC. From there, we organize wholesale distribution to our customers, ensuring that fresh, high-quality, local products reach their destination efficiently.

Be Vocal. Support Local.

What We Do

Feast Down East has a USDA and GAP certified Food Hub operating out of the historic train depot in Burgaw, NC. The FDE Food Hub is committed to helping local, small-to medium-scale and limited-resource farmers in accessing increased market opportunities for product sales. We do this year-round through marketing, aggregation, and wholesale distribution of local produce, fruits, meats, eggs, and other value-added products at their peak flavor.
