From Marx Foods:

Until 2007, our only customers were about 400 of the top restaurant chefs in the country (traditionally, we’re a boutique high-end restaurant distributor). Now, home chefs like you can buy the finest and freshest foods just like the pro chefs who are driving food trends. Our goal is to supply you with the ingredients to make memorable dining experiences … in your home.

We’re a family business…the 5th generation to be exact. Things have certainly changed since 1895, but our desire to provide the finest and freshest foods to our customers hasn’t. Frank, Justin, Keith and Garrett Marx and their small staff work with the foragers, farmers, fishermen and artisans to supply you with the best. We welcome you into our family.

We are guided by the following principles:

Be Delicious. Supplying you with the finest and the freshest is our top priority.

Foresee Food Trends. There are so many thousands of food products out there. We’ll offer what’s hot now. But it is more important to us to find the exciting new food products of tomorrow. Ironically, this often means rediscovering the heirloom and heritage products of yesterday. It helps that we have great relationships with some of the most innovative chefs and producers in the world.

Sell the Star of the Meal. We are dedicated to finding the very best foods and bringing them to you. We will never sell conventional ground beef or plain ketchup in bulk. What you can buy from us is the center of the plate, the conversation piece of the meal, or that hidden ingredient that takes a dish’s flavor profile to a new level of complexity.

Talk to Customers. Listen too. We are not your typical Internet company. When you call us during business hours, we’ll pick up the phone, we’ll take special requests, we’ll answer your questions, and if we don’t know the answer, we’ll tell you so and then go find the answer for you.

Be Authentic & Transparent. Did you know that the milk in the picture on most cereal boxes is actually Elmers glue? We think that’s disgusting. We took all the photos on our site…and, then, we ate the food. Or, rather, we savored it with a glass or two of wine (yes, our office is really fun to work in…especially on photo days!). But authentic photography is only part of it.

Authenticity guides our decisions about what products to sell, how to write about them, how we talk to you when you call with questions, and just about everything else. We also try as hard as possible to be transparent. We’ll give you as much information as possible about our foods so that you can make educated food purchasing decisions depending on your health goals and food politics.

Connect You to the Source. You’d be surprised how much of a difference shipping food directly from the supplier to you makes in terms of higher food quality and lower prices. Why pay to have your food sit in several warehouses and travel from company to company when we can simply ship it directly to you from the people who packed it?

My Review: With the kitchen under remodel, we've been cooking outdoors on a camping stove, bbq grill, and this microwave.  Frankly, it's been a life-saver.
