Thank you for taking the time to check out our project!

We are Wild Purveyors LLC, a three year old family company owned and operated by two brothers, Tom and Cavan Patterson.

We are opening a Specialty Foods Market offering Certified Organic and/or sustainable farm fresh produce, hormone and antibiotic FREE grass fed/pastured meats and poultry, cultivated mushrooms, GMO FREE grains and flour, farmstead Artisan aged raw milk cheeses, rBST FREE fresh raw milk and other organic dairy products, and preservative and additive FREE preserves and other food products, as well as wild mushrooms and other wild edible plants and berries, Exclusively from the farms and forests of Pennsylvania!

We currently supply fine restaurants, country clubs, and CSA Farms (such as Blackberry Meadows Farm, Kretschmann Organic Farm, and Penns Corner Farm Alliance) around Pennsylvania with farm direct products from the 70+ PA family farms that we work with, and we are now very excited and honored to bring our amazing food offerings to you in our new market in Pittsburgh!  In addition to being huge supporters of local organic and sustainable farming and foraging, we are also big supporters of the Pennsylvania economy and we are very pleased to be able to continue to support PA Agriculture and Jobs with your help! 

Aside from our PA Food distribution business we also organize and host Farm Dinners, Cheese and Wine/Craft Beer pairings, and classes about foraging, food preservation and pairings, as well as farming.  We are looking forward to being able to host more of these events and classes from our new Market!  We have even put together some pretty amazing exclusive opportunities through our Backer Rewards - check it out (to the right)!!!

The highest levels of support for this project come with exclusive private meals prepared by some of the amazingly talented Award Winning Executive Chefs that we work with, such as Brian Hammond (Restaurant Echo), Brian Pekarcik (Spoon), Dave Racicot (Notion), Justin Severino (Cure), and Kevin Sousa (Salt of the Earth), among other rock star chefs in the Pittsburgh food scene!

To streamline our Rewards Program we are having Wild Purveyors Vouchers printed on secure check paper in convenient denominations.  These vouchers are fully transferable so they can be used as gifts as well!

This will certainly be an unconventional market consisting of some of the highest quality local foods available in Pennsylvania. We look forward to seeing you there!

Please pledge your support for our project and our Pennsylvania Specialty Foods Market!

Thank you for interest in our market and your consideration in supporting our project!
