FarmieMarket.com now serving Montgomery County

Thursday, June 13, 2013 - Updated: 12:11 AM

FarmieMarket.com, an online farmers' market serving the Capital Region since 2010, began serving Columbia, Greene, Otsego, Herkimer, Montgomery and Fulton Counties beginning on June 12.

The online farmers' market enables consumers to browse fresh inventories of locally grown foods, add items to their virtual shopping cart, check out with their credit card, and receive home or workplace delivery of their goods.

The launch of FarmieMarket's new territories will expand the business' service area from six counties (Albany, Schenectady, Rensselaer, Saratoga, Dutchess and Ulster) to twelve, serving a contiguous area through the Mohawk and Hudson Valleys from Coopertown to Saratoga to Beacon.

Mohawk Valley FarmieMarket Regional Managers Stacy Handy and Susan Keith and Hudson Valley Regional Manager Mercedes Wallner have been busy enlisting a diverse group of family-run farms to provide customers with local fresh foods. Several more farms are slated to come online as the summer harvest season moves into full swing later in July.

A few of the farms participating in the launch of the Mohawk Valley market include: Gray's Greenhouse (vegetables and fruits); Takacs Farm (vegetables); Creek's Edge Elk Farm (elk meat); Crum Creek CSA (beef, pork, chicken, lamb and eggs); Willowplace Farm (grass fed beef).

FarmieMarket farmers are leaders in providing socially and environmentally responsible foods that are as local as you can get. All of the farmers participating in FarmieMarket.com sell 100 percent hormone-, antibiotic-, pesticide-, herbicide-, preservative- and GMO-free products. FarmieMarket's mission is to help small farms make their businesses viable by expanding their access to a broader customer base.

Each market territory features separate farms, enabling customers to order food from the farms that are most local to them. Deliveries are made once a week in each territory; orders must be placed weekly by midnight on Tuesday for delivery on Thursday.

Additional small farms interested in selling their products can visit www.FarmieMarket.com for more information. Mohawk and Hudson Valley customers can visit www.FarmieMarket.com to shop beginning on June 12, with the first deliveries to arrive at customers' doors on June 20. Contact Stacy Handy at mohawkvalley@farmiemarket.com or Mercedes Wallner at hudsonvalley@farmiemarket.com with any questions regarding their respective markets.
