According to a post, Good Eggs, a marketplace for local groceries, raised $8.5m in Series A funding.
The round was led by Sequoia Capital with participation from Harrison Metal, Collaborative Fund, angel investor Max Ventilla and others. In conjunction with the funding, Sequoia Partner Bryan Schreier joined Good Eggs’ board.
The company intends to use the funds to expand the business.
The local farm to fridge grocery delivery service
Founded in 2011 in SF, Good Eggs allows consumers to buy fresh local groceries from local farmers and foodmakers, and receive the food at home. The company’s city marketplaces are designed to support independent local farmers and foodmakers who use sustainable practices, treat employees fairly, and make their food with care. It is currently available in the San Francisco Bay Area and is piloting in Brooklyn, Los Angeles, and New Orleans, with plans to expand to other metropolitan areas soon.
