Help & FAQ


When can I expect to receive my Rooted Fare package? 

We generally ship orders out every Friday, as we make these sauces in small-batches (and with love) to ensure flavor! You can expect to receive your package in 1-3 days after the order ships, but shipping has become more unpredictable, so please expect shipping delays. 

If you order before Thursday at 6pm, it'll ship out the next day. If you order after that, say on Friday morning, your order will be shipping out the following Friday. 

Check out our Recipes page for inspiration while your package ships! 

Where does Rooted Fare ship?

Currently, we ship to all 48 contiguous US states.

After opening, refrigerate and enjoy before 6 months for best taste.

Can I gift Rooted Fare? 

Of course, you amazing gifter, you! If you're sending it to a friend or loved one, you can add a special note if you'd like to include it in their package by adding your note at checkout.

Who made the recipe?

Co-founder Ashley and her immigrant chef aunt, Wenling, got into the kitchen together to create this one-of-a-kind spread based on Ashley's grandma's award-winning recipe for glutinous rice balls.

Rooted Fare

How are Rooted Fare products different from other sauces & sauce brands out there?

What sets us apart is we're proudly Chinese American. We're a food brand that hopes to inspire all people, especially 2nd generation Chinese Americans, to embrace the messiness and joy of figuring out how and where we belong.

We are not trying to make food exactly like grandpa's and mom's, we're making something that we can call ours, which tastes both nostalgic and novel. Learn more on our Impact page.

How can I stock you on my store's shelves?

If you're a retailer and would like to stock us, please reach out at hello [at] rootedfare [dot] com or order directly from us on Faire. 

We're excited to partner with you!
