With its deep agricultural roots, North Carolina offers a world-class bounty of handcrafted gourmet foods. NC MADE was founded on the belief that these artisanal foods should be available in beautiful packages that you'd be proud to send as gifts.

Our goals are to foster appreciation of handcrafted foods within the great state of North Carolina and to gain national attention for NC's thriving food economy. From Wilmington to Raleigh to Asheville, we travel the state tasting products and selecting the best our state has to offer.
