You’ve heard about the importance of investing in local food by supporting local farm stands, CSA’s and farmers markets and we are lucky of have many of these in our area.
On October 28th at 7 PM, you’ll learn about a new model of farmer-to-customer distribution that allows you to support our regional food system. Greg Georgakalis, who runs Farmers to You. based in Montpelier Vermont, will be in Newburyport to talk about this distribution model that connects farmers in the region with customers via the web. Customers commit to placing an order of at least $40 each week for items listed by the “partner-farmers” including fruits, beans, vegetables, buttermilk, eggs, meat, jams, bread, syrups, and more. Orders are then delivered weekly to 16 Boston-area dropoff spots, including Newburyport.
