Yesterday Farmigo announced that it has launched the first ever online farmer’s market!
The online farmer's market is designed to connect communities such as workplaces, schools, or community centers to local farms. This will help them provide a personalized online farmer's market allowing people to purchase local, fresh food. The first food communities are starting off in San Francisco and New York. Los Angeles, Seattle, Portland, Denver, Chicago, and Philadelphia will be rolling out soon.
