Dan Hine
Founder & CEO
EatLoco, Inc.

After 22 years of commercial digital marketing, advertising, and promotional success in Loudoun County, Dan conceived of EatLoco in 2015. His passion was to use his marketing skills and the backing of his successful marketing firm to promote healthy eating and living in northern Virginia. In 2016, EatLoco began partnering with Loudoun County farmers and farmers markets to provide free marketing services. Dan’s demonstrated success at the markets and the improved financial well-being of partner farmers resulted in the 2017 development of EatLoco Farmers Markets. A self-acknowledged city-boy, Dan’s professional knowledge and management approach are the powerhouse behind EatLoco’s success in the rapid expansion of our farmers markets and helping our farmers and venues achieve aggressive business goals.

EatLoco Market Managers are the      of all 3 of our markets. Jason leads the team from vendor coordination and setup in the early morning, answers customer questions, handles emergencies and ensures everyone follows company safety protocols, organizes market shutdown and cleanup at closing time. The responsibility and burden Jason carries is hidden deeply behind the smile on his face. It's that same smile and friendly demeanor that sets the positive tone for all of our markets year-round.

2017 - EATLOCO LAUNCHES
NEW MARKET

20191102_104207.jpg

Building a Farmers Market was one of the scariest though most rewarding things we've ever done. The better we did at promoting our vendors and the market itself, the more businesses came to rely on us to help them build their business too. 

2018 - EATLOCO SPRING OPENING

It wasn't easy, but we made it through our first official bitter cold winter season in 2017 with only a handful of vendors.  Now ready to kick this thing into high-gear, we gained the trust of over 60 vendors to begin our ground-breaking 2018 season.

2019 - EATLOCO SPRING
OPENING
