Farmer Joe's/online farmers market


The business I am proposing is called Farmer Joe’s. It is a website based company that deals with local produce. This company provides a website service that allows local communities to sell their food from their gardens. Right now there is not a very good way for farmers and suburban households to sell the food that they grow, bake, produce, raise, and just make in general. This is also a good way for local chefs to really start selling their own favorite foods. So besides the garden items people grow, you can also buy meals on occasion. The website makes profit from ads, events (like festivals), and also there's a delivery option that charges a fee for delivery that will eventually be added into the website.
