Frequently Asked Questions

What products and services do you offer?

At Here Here Market, we offer artisanal food products and delightful gift boxes from emerging culinary creators. The food products we offer are designed to suit a wide variety of taste buds and dishes, ranging from tomato soup to Kansas City-style barbecue sauce and even Chicago-style hot fermented giardiniera. We also specialize in connecting users with emerging culinary creators through online cooking experiences, including classes, demonstrations, and more!

Can you ship outside of the Chicago area and can you work with culinary experts outside of Chicago?

Yes, we can ship outside of Chicago! We currently ship (and book culinary experiences) nationwide throughout the United States.

Also, if you’re a culinary expert who operates outside of Chicago, we’d love to work with you and expand our regional footprint! Reach out via phone, email, or our contact page to learn more.

What should I do if I want to sell a gift box or can’t find something I’m looking for in your marketplace?

If you’re interested in selling your culinary creations in our hospitality marketplace, or if you can’t find a particular product, get in touch! We’ll do our best to respond within 24 to 36 hours.

Also, please note that more curated products and packages are coming to our marketplace soon! You can join our mailing list to be among the first to find out about our next package release.

How many gift boxes can I order at one time?

You can order as many as you’d like! Because we do work with small-batch producers, some boxes may have limited immediate quantities available, so if you wish to buy 10 baskets or more, we ask that you email us your order at team@hereheremarket.com.

I want to buy individual products rather than a gift box. Where do I go?

If you’re interested in buying specific products instead of a large gift box, please visit our Shop page here.

Who are your virtual culinary experiences designed for?

Our online culinary experiences are designed for anybody who would like to learn how to prepare a wide variety of cuisines, up their mixology game, or plan a unique social experience for both work and personal celebrations. You can opt to learn how to use knives to create red curry scallops, learn French or Latin American cooking techniques, or make a silky mousse right in your own home!

These experiences are ideal for colleagues, family, and friends who want to celebrate life events or simply get together and have fun virtually. Keep in mind that you can easily customize your experience based on the unique needs of your party. For instance, if you have dietary restrictions or preferences, your culinary creator can customize your online cooking class to account for this.

How do I book an online culinary experience?

If you’re interested in booking an online culinary experience, simply click on your chosen culinary experience or beverage experience, fill out the required information, and submit the deposit. We’ll then review your culinary expert’s availability and coordinate the most convenient time and date for your virtual experience within 24 to 36 hours.

Once we have confirmed your experience, you and your guests should receive an invite for a Zoom event. You will also receive instructions and a detailed equipment list before the event. If you wish, and it’s available with your experience, you can have a cooking class kit delivered to you for an additional fee.

How much do your virtual experiences cost?

Pricing will depend on whether your experience includes a cooking class kit, which serves two people (each kit costs $40 to $80). However, experiences generally start at $300 per hour. Classes requiring allergy accommodations and/or recipe modifications are each priced at $350+.
