Small farmers struggle to get food to market
Small-scale agriculture operations are popping up all over the place, as people start urban community gardens and organic farms, but the marketing efforts are usually grassroots and small. It can be difficult on a limited budget to connect with the general public.
Solution: A digital Farmers Market app advertises food drop-offs at local retailers
A new technology initiative called Aisle Won is launching in communities around the U.S. to collect local products and distribute them to the public through local retailers. A mobile app advertises the products and displays scheduled drop-off times on a map.
So far the initiative has launched in Baltimore and New Orleans, but the organization is looking for additional city partners.
