AGA also has online shopping options for regional delivery and pickup or nationwide shipping. To make it easy, you can shop by product, location, outlet type, or certification.
4. Social media:
This might come as a surprise, but social media can be a great place to find out about upcoming farmers' markets. You can use free tools like Facebook, Nextdoor, or Meetup to search for events in your area. These kinds of online groups can also connect you with like-minded people and turn into great networking opportunities.
5. Green Chef:
Though not a farmers' market in the traditional sense, Green Chef was the first meal kit company certified by CCOF as an organic company and is a great option for getting organic groceries and meal kits delivered right to your door. This is a game changer if you don't have an organic or local farmers' market in your area.
