An online space where local farmers post what they have harvested or prepared for market each week. Products include produce, meat, bread and prepared meals which are sourced from a variety of local farms in Vermont. Customers can choose what items they want and how much. Farmers gather weekly, put the orders together, and customers pick it up. Each community has it's own pick up spot and it is quite a variety - from local libraries, to local shops and college social centers.
Traditional farmers markets are seasonal, not year round. This model has the potential to increase access to fresh food year round.
This model is convenient.
It allows farmers to reach folk that they did not reach before, supporting their farms, keeping business local, and it also provides access to those without access to fresh food.
How might this model be adapted further for all communities using technology?
How might this model service communities in food deserts?
