HOW IT
WORKS

Our Virtual Food Hub is built especially for you! Our local vendors bring so many resources to our community; it is our mission to bridge the gap between local Makers & Growers and locals. Also to facilitate an avenue for local Makers & Growers to thrive and connect. 

All vendors have to do is deliver their sold items to our central market drop-off location on market days, Drop those items into customer designated boxes; we will do the rest! 

As this grows, we welcome your feedback on how we can make your seller experience a better one! Our site is powered by WordPress, so the options are endless and we see this as being a long term solution to the gap between locals and local, in other communities as well! Let’s build a extensive market together!

To Our Vendors,

During this quarantine period of COVID-19, we have a few recommendations to keep you and our customers safe!

  1. As the CDC has recommended, keep your hands washed well!
  2. Use caution while shopping at grocery stores, exercise precise hygiene while doing so.
  3. Reach to the back of rows to avoid products that have recently been handled.
  4. Shield your products from others to avoid contamination.
  5. Wear gloves and mask (if possible) when delivering to market locations and keep a safe distance of at least 6 feet from other vendors or staff.
  6. If you deliver to a customer’s home location, do not enter the home. Leave the order on the porch or outside the residence and notify the customer. 
  7. We will offer vendor shipping fulfillment to avoid vendors from having to enter a post office. We use Commercial Based Shipping from USPS.
