Our blended family started Daily Harvest Express with a passion for local farming and bringing fresh, deliciously natural food to the people in our community. We created our online farmers market as an efficient way to bring super fresh, natural food from farms in our own area to busy people who work all week and don’t have time to get to their farmer’s market. We saw the need to provide another outlet for local farms and artisans to sell their goods AND enhance wellness in the workplace by replacing traditional processed food with fresh, organic fruits and veggies.

A biologist, a chemist, a creative writer, a gelato chef, a yoga teacher, a feng shui master, a screenplay editor, a business designer, a food director, a few pilots, a number genius, a techno geek, a surfer, a photographer. We are a team of creative GelatoLovers who believe in excellence and terrific food design. Nature is our essence, passion our nourishment and love our vitality.
Our roots are in Italy, where the 14th Century Renaissance produced an everlasting vision of food, art, architecture, design and beauty in every aspect of life. It was during this period that the contemporary concept of gelato was born. We are here to create a superlative dessert experience.
We are Mark and Rebekah Stogsdill, the husband and wife team that started Happy Pantry. We began selling pickles and other tasty fermented goods at farmers markets in and around San Diego County in 2010.
We saw something missing in the local food system and wanted to give our community access to the wonderfully delicious and incredibly healthy world of fermented products that we had become accustomed to enjoying at home. As fermentation became more and more mainstream, health practitioners and wellness gurus alike started using a new term that we hadn’t really heard before, “gut health”. As it turns out, not only are fermented foods (like sauerkraut and kimchi) and beverages (like kombucha and kvass) delicious, but they are also incredibly good for you. We ferment in small batches and are the only people to handle your products from start to finish. We produce, package, and ship directly to you from our small kitchen and not some giant warehouse.
Be Happy & Be well, Rebekah & Mark
