Shop Local? There’s an App for That

The Coastal Growers Farmers Market app makes it easy to shop local and eat fresh


Even farmers have gone digital: thanks to a new app called Coastal Growers Farmers Market, it’s now easier than ever to shop local and eat fresh. The app, developed by Providence-based tech company Crave Food Systems, allows users to discover new food vendors, preorder their desired items, and pick them up at the (physical) Coastal Growers Market. Instead of wandering the stalls, you can do all your browsing online. If all goes well, the app will save shoppers time as well as help local vendors increase their exposure, especially to phone-clutching millennials with a taste for organic provisions. The app is available to download for both iOS and Android.
