Selling Food on Shopify | 30+ Subreddits to Share your Recipes content & boost traffic

A while back, we created a Shopify App to make blog content discovery easier for Shopify stores.

200 customers + 36 reviews (avg. 4.9 stars) later, I realized a lot of my customers are using it for their recipes blog. They want to let people easily discover recipes with different criteria like flavour, experience level, cooking time etc. and our app allows them to do just that.

As I refined our mission to focus on making content discovery easier for Shopify merchants (and added blog search & featured articles along the way), I realized many customers have no idea there are places on the internet they can share and distribute their carefully crafted recipes (for free), and build new customer base and followers – as long as it is done tastefully.

Some of these places are the different subreddits for different food niches. I have spent some time to compile them below, and hope these can help anyone running food business on Shopify better distribute your recipes content.
