Local is a family owned and operated Deli.

We, Owners Marcus and Amber Edwards, have been in the Monterey Bay Area since 2010 when we were displaced by the great recession of 2008-2009. We came by way of the Central Valley and the Sierra Foothills where we both grew up.  Coming here with no more than a promise of a job on Cannery Row managing a restaurant, we took a leap that would take us on a journey we could have never imagined. During our time here we have built careers in the restaurant and healthcare industries and most importantly we have built a family with our two awesome boys Benjamin and Franklin (yep, you read that right). We love it here and have put down our roots here. With perfect weather all year round and some of the most amazing outdoor exploration opportunities, we never plan to leave.
