Discover Independent Food and Drink Direct from the Makers.

The Inspiration

Tastemakr was conceived in response to a lack of channels empowering independent food makers to sell direct to consumers, and consumers to discover quality food and drink from independent food makers.While at a food and culture festival in 2014, Anthony O-Thomas, founder of Tastemakr observed the frustration and how difficult it was for both parties."On one side, it's a make or break for these food entrepreneurs and makers to strike a deal with these large retail stores. On the other hand there are very few places you know where you can get handmade almond peanut butter unless you know the person who makes it" - Anthony.


Tastemakr is building a curated common marketplace that brings access, transparency and discovery between quality independent food and drink, artisans, makers and consumers of food. 

What is Tastemakr?

An online marketplace and destination for independent food and drink direct from food artisans and makers.
