Online food purveyor New York Mouth is now simply Mouth. The Brooklyn-based company, which sells local goods from indie food makers located across New York's five boroughs, has recently expanded its online shopping platform to also include handmade, small-batch foods such as chocolates, cookies, snacks, pickles, coffee, tea, herbs and spices from artisans around the country, including Southern California.

L.A.-based Sqirl, Culver City’s Chocovivo and Santa Barbara County walnut oil company La Nogalera currently represent Mouth's Southern California vendors (that’s a start!). There are other California-based artisans, such as the Girl & the Fig, Sola Bee, Baia Pasta, Just Pure Foods and CC Made.

You can buy fig jam, Wine Country wildflower honey, plum and thyme jam, stone-ground chocolate and more from California folks.

The online store’s expansion means its offerings are no longer exclusive to New York foodmakers -- Angelenos can now shop for locally produced goods, and if regional foods such as the garlic salsa from Texas, salami from Oregon or hot sauce from the Midwest sound enticing, that can be added to the cart, too.
