Foodzie, a marketplace for artisanal foods from small producers, announced its acquisition by Joyus on Tuesday.

Joyus is an online shopping site with videos of the best products picked by their curators. The Foodzie team will now run Joyus Food, with cofounder Emily Olson showcasing their delectable discoveries in videos.

“Think Food Network + Foodzie and that’s what we’ll be creating on Joyus Food,” she wrote.

Foodzie also offered monthly Tasting Boxes, where you could try out artisanal treats before purchasing them on the site. Now they’ll be available for purchase on Joyus, with video but without subscription options. And will be shutting down on August 1.
