/narrative food curates the best handcrafted and organic foods in California, each ingredient with a unique story we are excited to share with you.

Each week we create a food narrative with these ingredients, telling stories of people, place and culture.

Our customers elevate these stories by creating lasting memories from their experiences in the kitchen and around the table – building their health at the same time.

Our personal health, the health of our community, and the health of our soil are all part of a bigger story that we invite you to be a part of.
