Doorstep Market Adds Southeast Artisans Selected by Chocolatier Phillip Ashley Rix to its Online Multi-Region Shopping Site 1
“From the Home of the Blues to the nation’s capital, this region has a charm and character all its own, and Doorstep Market lets us share it with those who can’t travel here in person,” says Phillip Ashley. “I’m proud to highlight and support these uniquely talented locally-based artisans, makers and specialized purveyors.”
Doorstep Market, a new multi-vendor and multi-regional integrated platform for consumers who want to shop like locals and support small businesses, now includes artisans and makers from the South x Southeast region, expertly curated by award-winning Chef/Chocolatier Phillip Ashley Rix and other tastemakers. The newly opened market represents the rich history and unique local flavors of the southern region located East of the Mississippi River.

The five regions on Doorstep Market — Hudson River, New England, Bay Area, Southland, and South x Southeast — are each curated by regional tastemakers and local experts and feature a collection of hand-crafted and locally grown products in the Food & Drink, Kitchen, Home and Living, Health and Wellness, Clothing and Jewelry, and Gift categories that can be shipped across the country. Doorstep Market offers a virtual exploration of each area, with behind the scenes interviews and insights into the makers, as well as informative articles, recipes, online classes and more.

Some of the makers and products featured in Doorstep Market’s South x Southeast region directed by Phillip Ashley Rix include the beautiful and decadent designer chocolates from Phillip Ashley Chocolates, healthy and delicious frozen treats from Hugh Balthrop’s Sweet Magnolia Gelato Co., and natural honey from Kevin Woods Bee 901 Co., a local nonprofit that gives back to the community.

“Doorstep Market was created to bring the local artisanal landscape of a region direct to consumers and to make an online connection to the culture and flavors that make that area unique,” says Tom Jacoby, Doorstep Market Co-Founder.

“What makes Doorstep Market a different online shopping experience is that the goods and services presented are hand-picked and curated by local experts,” adds Jennifer Solow, Doorstep Market Co-Founder.

Doorstep Market taps local curators to present a wide selection of regional purveyors representing growers, distillers, brewers, bakers, cheesemakers, designers, and many more to its shopping site, making it a site for all seasons and reasons. The concept is to bring the region to consumers, allowing them to shop like locals and enjoy all that the region has to offer.
