Our Farmers & Vendors

Oryana is so proud to work with over 150 local producers and vendors – all coming from no more than 100-miles away from our door. Our area is rich with thoughtfully grown and crafted items that we can bring to our shelves.  

But along with bringing unique products to our shoppers, we also build lasting relationships with the farmers and craftsmen that produce them. Below you can read about some of these local heroes that we work with – those who are changing the face of sustainable, small-scale production right here in our own backyard.
