Hunt & Gather

[/heading][vc_column_text]Based in Denver, Colorado, Hunt & Gather is a specialty food distribution company that specializes in wild foraged ingredients. They carry a large variety of wild mushrooms, truffles, greens, and seasonal vegetables. Hunt & Gather works hard to provide quality and unique ingredients to their consumers. They provide their ingredients to local restaurants, retail locations, and sell their produce at the Slow Food Farmers Market on Sundays at The Source.

Well known around Denver and featured in WestWord Magazine, “Graham Steinruck and Martinez started Hunt & Gather almost two years ago, after mulling the idea over for years. They met through the Colorado Mycological Association, where Steinruck was an active member and respected amateur mycologist who’d served as vice president of the group and editor of its newsletter. More than just a hobbyist, Steinruck had already translated his knowledge and experience into a professional career: Before Hunt & Gather, he ran Mycotours (offering clients foraging experiences in Colorado and beyond) and had developed techniques for forest-floor remediation to help restore ecosystems that benefit wild mushrooms. Over the past decade, he has also worked as a private chef for restaurants and catering companies.”

We are happy to have Hunt & Gather be a part of our Slow Food Farmers Markets! Find out more about Hunt & Gather by visiting their website.
