It's delivery day with the Venice Merchant, and they let us ride along with them as they delivered crates of fresh, organic fruits and vegetables, homemade honey, bread, cheeses and slow raised beef to homes throughout Venice. Giles Donovan and his wife Laura started this farm-to-front-door service to bring good, healthy food to their community while also supporting local farmers and ranchers who maintain the highest standards of care and respect for the environment and their animals. They also source goods from local businesses including pizza dough from Pitfire's kitchen.
The Venice Merchant service has already expanded to include the Topanga Merchant, and next up is Santa Monica. For information and pricing visit venicemerchant.com
