Easton Farmers’ Market Innovates with Veggie Valet

Easton Farmers Market

Ohio Farmers' Markets are getting creative when it comes to serving their customers. At Easton Farmers' Market in Columbus, Ohio customers can store their fresh market purchases in a refrigerated trailer, and go to dinner at one of many excellent restaurants or shop at the many adjacent retailers. Their purchases will be held until one hour after the market closes, that's until 8 pm. Customers can drive up the to the Veggie Valet and pickup their purchases conveniently from their car.

The refrigerated Veggie Valet was established 6 days before the market's opening with the help of Jeff Morris of www.Allacart.com. All A Cart donated the majority of the cost to the Easton Community Foundation for it's use during the market season.

The free service has received positive feedback from customers. According to Maybruck, "The Easton customer loves it. They can shop at both Easton and the Market and not worry about carrying their produce around."

The Easton Farmers' Market runs June 2 - September 29, 2011
Every Thursday 3-7pm
