Sean Gallagher is the founder of Terroir - Local Source Catering, and Local Source Market & Bakery. The three linked businesses all feature local, seasonal, and often organic foods. The North End market has become a community hub offering cooking classes for seasonal cooking, group tours for primary to university students, a gathering place for many local agriculture based talks while supplying transparent, quality local food to the market place all year long. Sean spent his formative years in Africa, as his family was involved in International Development. He has also worked for CARE in Bosnia. His international experiences have broadened both his tastes and his views, leading him toward a life of running a small business with an environmental & social bottom line. Sean's food philosophy is simply to get back to the basics. He believes life should be lived appreciative of the simple pleasure of eating well with the seasons. Time should be invested to cook and enjoy good food. Understanding the interconnection with the food that is cultivated in our region and the value of supporting a healthy food system that adds value to our culture, our economy and our land.
