Meet Sylvia

I’ve always been an advocate for connecting and supporting my community. 
‘Local’ should not only indicate where you are on a map, but also demonstrate community-driven values and a desire to utilize neighboring businesses, organizations, and agriculture at whatever capacity you can.




My passion for organic, locally-sourced goods started when I discovered my gluten-sensitivity five years ago. It took me down an eye-opening path revealing the benefits of eating whole foods and how conscious consumerism greatly impacts my local economy.
It is my intention to build an online marketplace where anyone can get past the noise of Houston to see the small, tight-nit Localite community hidden within. A place to find good people, good food, and opportunity.
