If you’re looking for farm-fresh but your time is limited—not so easy to plan your day around the often limited hours of a farm market—we have good news. Fresh Nation, an online marketplace and delivery service for farmer’s markets around the country, has teamed up with the Pleasantville Farmer’s Market to offer same-day (Saturday) home delivery of your choice of produce, fruit, or what have you.
Here’s how it works: You sign on to Fresh Nation and scour the site for your weekly farm-fresh necessities. Select what you want, just as you would any other online store. Then, Fresh Nation dispatches a “trained food shopper” to personally fill your order and deliver it to your doorstep.
Says Peter Rogovin, chairman of Foodchester, Inc., which operates the Pleasantville Farmers Market, “Many people who would love to buy their food at the Pleasantville Farmers Market are too busy, or out of town, or homebound, so the partnership with Fresh Nation helps solve those shopper’s problem.”
