Just as Gainesville Farm Fresh brings you resources on sustainable agriculture and our local food community, The Farm Fresh Community Market debuts as Gainesville’s online marketplace that will put you in touch with our local farmers, producers and their products. Here you will have the opportunity to browse their products, 24/7, place your order and then pickup your order at any of the local farmer’s markets that your grower participates in or at one of our participating delivery locations like the new Citizen’s Co-op.
‘Always Fresh and Always Local’, The Farm Fresh Community Market is your market connecting you to your area growers and producers. There are no fees or membership dues, just a place to buy, sell and support those that dedicate their time to grow your food, produce your products and provide you with the opportunity to be a part of securing and defining our local food economy.
Coupled with the market, there will be a new resources in development connecting growers and chefs. After a very informative and well attended Farm to Restaurant discussion panel , held by Val Leitner of Blue Oven Kitchens and Anna Prizzia of Slow Food Gainesville, GFF, through the Farm Fresh Market, will be coordinating with Val and Anna to highlite their efforts with their Farm to Restaurant project.
Follow the progress as the market moves ahead. Don’t mind the dust as it will continue to be in development. Over the next few weeks the market will begin listing member growers and their products, so please check in often and feel free to offer your advice, support and opionions.
