Source Otsego Online Farmers' Market
Farm, Source, Thrive, Otsego County is excited to announce we have teamed up with WhatsGood to offer an online service designed to provide easy access to fresh and locally produced food.
From the convenience of a phone or computer, folks who live or work in Otsego County can now shop some of our best local food producers. Each farm and food vendor creates a profile on the WhatsGood website so users can see who they are shopping from. The vendors post the price and quantity available of each item, along with which drop-site(s) those items can be retrieved from. The website makes it easy for users to find what they need, order online, and pick items up at one of four community drop-sites, their favorite farmers' market, or the farm.
The four community organizations partnering with Farm, Source, Thrive, Otsego County will operate their drop-sites every Thursday for 10 weeks this fall, beginning Thursday, October 17.
Customers can pick up their orders at:
- The Arc Otsego Day Services Building at 63 Lower River St., Oneonta, 1-6 PM
- Clark Sports Center, 124 County Hwy 52, Cooperstown, 12-8 PM
- Pathfinder Village, 3 Chenango Rd., Edmeston, 12-5 PM
- Richfield Springs Food Co-op, 96 Main Street, Richfield Springs, 12-1 PM
Important note: The pick-up date for the week of Thanksgiving will be Tuesday, November, 26.
Please be aware, this is a brand new project and it may take a little time for farmers to work out the logistics of serving each of the drop-sites. If the drop-site you are hoping to use is not yet listed on the WhatsGood website, that means producers have not yet set up delivery to that drop-site. Please keep checking; the list of vendors will keep growing over time and drop-site choices should increase.
Vendors may also choose to use their farm or farmers' market booth as a place where customers can pick up their orders. Each drop-site on the WhatsGood website lists which vendors are serving that drop-site and the products available. Vendors set their own cut-off times for taking orders.
I sincerely hope you will enjoy and take advantage of this opportunity to easily shop amazing food while supporting your local economy!
