Why Living Local Makes a Difference to Sonoma County

Shopping Locally is Powerful! According to a recent study conducted by Sonoma State University, buying Sonoma County products from Oliver's Market benefits the Sonoma County economy more than TWICE as much as buying national brands from chain stores.

  • Oliver's stocks over 6,000 products from Sonoma County growers and manufacturers. In fact, one out of every four dollars spent at Oliver's is for local products.
  • "Oliver's sourcing of local goods supports over 150 jobs in Sonoma County in addition to its own workforce." – Dr. Robert Eyler, business consultant and Professor of Economics at Sonoma State University
  • "We all have to eat. If we localize this essential activity it can become an engine of job growth in Sonoma County. Working together we can literally eat our way to lower unemployment." – Derek Huntington, Sonoma County GoLocal Cooperative
  • "You can lower your environmental footprint by eating locally owned and produced foods. It significantly reduces the average distance food has to travel to reach your plate from about 1,500 miles for a conventional meal to less than 100 miles for a meal sourced locally." – Derek Huntington, Sonoma County GoLocal Cooperative

 


Where "Local" Means Sonoma County

To us Local means Sonoma County -- period. Not Marin, not Napa, and definitely not the state of California, as some of our competitors define it.

From the day we opened our doors in 1988, we’ve built our business on the simple premise that the best food and wine in the world are produced here, in Sonoma County. We didn’t feel like we were pioneers at the time, but as people have come to understand and embrace the value of locally grown and made food and the value of shopping locally, we realize we were part of the early days of the movement.

As a Sonoma County business, we’ve built enduring relationships with local growers, makers, and manufacturers, because they make the foods and wines we love. Many of them were getting started when we were. Now they are nationally known, but for us, they are still old friends who often delivered products to our Cotati store in their cars back in the late 1980s.

Along with local products being excellent choices for taste and quality reasons, buying locally also improves our local economy. The dollars you spend at local retailers buying local products support other local businesses and our tax base, too!
