Bringing the Farmers Market into Your Kitchen

Melanie Franklin and Tony Lee visit the White Plains Farmers Market

Why didn’t someone think of this before?

Many people like to buy fresh seasonal produce and other goodies–honey, eggs, bread, jelly– at Farmers Markets. Not many people love to get there at 7 am on a Saturday to get the best pick. Sometimes the thing you’re looking for isn’t at the market where you are.  Sometimes you’re just, well, too busy.

What if you could get the pick of the Farmers Market delivered straight to your kitchen?

Tony Lee and Melanie Franklin ran a Farmers Market in Connecticut for a summer to intensely study this system where farmers, vendors and consumers connect in the market. And they’ve come up with Fresh Nation.

Fresh Nation allows you to find and connect with farmers, artisans, and farmers’ markets near you, and from Larchmont to Greenwich you can get home delivery of farm fresh food, or pre-order online for pick up at a market.

“It makes the Farmers Market experience better for everybody,” says Melanie. Tony adds, “Home delivery is the Holy Grail. It makes the farm accessible to everyone.

If you click here  (and psst! enter the code FREEDELIVERY for you know, free delivery) order what you want and your credit card will not be charged until your order is delivered because selections can always differ.

“They’re farmers, not Wal-Mart,” says Tony.

And that’s the point.

Those radishes picked this morning Upstate can be on your plate tonight.
