Reaching food lovers, empowering food makers everywhere

We're on a mission to unite food lovers & makers

Everybody eats. We all have a connection to foods we love. We want our favorite foods closer to home, and we care about who’s behind it.

The Public is a community uniting food lovers & makers. Together, we’re changing the way people buy, discover and experience better food - closer to home. Through our marketplace and growing network of kitchens, markets and retail locations, we bring you closer to your favorite brands, no matter what neighborhood you're in.

We use online and physical retail, combined with neighborhood pickups and popup markets to help more than 400 brands reach our growing community of customers.

Founded by a team dedicated to food, retail and community

We created The Public from our founding team's experience gathering thousands of modern creators and consumers over the last 20 years, developing neighborhood farmers' markets, retail and hospitality brands, startup spaces and communities.

The Public Food Hub Co. is a privately-held company based in Edmonton, Canada.
