Reaching food lovers, empowering food makers everywhere

The Public is a community uniting food lovers & makers.

Through our marketplace and network of kitchens, markets and retail locations, we bring you closer to your favorite brands, no matter what neighborhood you're in.

We created The Public based on our experience gathering thousands of modern creators and consumers over the last 20 years, building neighborhood farmers' markets, retail and hospitality brands, startup communities and innovation spaces.
