Sara Hardy Online Farmers Market Generates $200,000 For Local Farmers
After a year in action, the Sara Hardy Online Farmers Market has generated over $200,000 for local farmers.
The online platform was created by the DDA last year to help reduce the spread of COVID-19, and still get people their fresh produce in a safe manner.
So far, SEEDS staff and volunteers have filled over 4,000 orders, which are then picked up by customers.
The in-person farmers market has reopened this month, but they still plan on keeping the online market open to sell fresh produce even into the winter months.
“We are very grateful for the support of the volunteers and our partners, and the vendors and the customers for making it possible,” said Elizabeth Dunham, Outreach Coordinator for SEEDS. “That’s a lot of sales, a lot of orders, a lot of product that moved in the past year.”
