Meet the Owner
Wendi’s Good Things Market is owned by Wendi Seger. She and her husband, Matt, and three children, live in the picturesque San Luis Valley in Southern Colorado. For over twenty years the Segers have lived on a farm that Matt has worked in Del Norte, Colorado.
In 2016, the Segers founded Locavores, a fast-casual restaurant focused on serving “fresh inspired food.” The restaurant emerged from Wendi’s desire to create a place that supports both the physical and mental wellness of people. Learn more about Locavores at eatlocavores.com.
Wendi’s Good Things Market was born out of the need to innovate and meet new needs in the community when the COVID-19 pandemic hit in March 2020. The San Luis Valley community, like many others across the country, experienced a shortage of meat, fresh food, and household supplies due to disrupted supply chains. Acting quickly, Wendi tapped her restaurant suppliers to offer Locavores’ customers access to items that were sold out at the groceries.
As grocery stores returned to normal, Wendi discovered that there was a desire for gourmet specialty products and foods not typically sold in her small-town community. At the same time, she recognized there were unmet emotional needs as well... the need for connection, inspiration, and joy. The pandemic took these things from our community and it was struggling to find again. These observations led to the expansion of the Market and the decision to establish it as its own brand, separate from Locavores, so it could serve online customers as well as locals.
Wendi’s hope with the Market is to inspire you to not just fill your life with things, but things that bring you joy or make you laugh. Part farm and part fancy, Wendi will bring you along on her own journey creating a fun-filled, joyful life in the midst of life’s circumstances.
