Farmers to market products on website

Cornell Cooperative Extension of Schoharie and Otsego Counties has partnered with area businesses to provide an online farmers’ market.

According to a media release, shoppers will be connected with farmers through the web company, WhatsGood, at https://sourcewhatsgood.com/, where orders can be placed with local producers for pick-up at designated, mid-week drop-sites.

Several area farms will begin participating the first week of May. Customers shopping for WhatsGood farm products may register at https://sourcewhatsgood.com.

Producers will create a farm profiles on the WhatsGood website and lists their available products, including quantities and prices. Customers on the website will select their preferred drop site, then shop from specific farmers or browse by products. After customers make their selections, they complete their purchase through the website.

Farmers choose the drop sites they serve, hosted by organizations partnering with the WhatsGood online market and whose food-related businesses are open.

Drop site locations include cafes in Cobleskill and Sharon Springs, a farm in Schoharie, a cheese store in Milford, a health market in Oneonta and a food co-op in Richfield Springs. Additional sites will be added when confirmed.

Farmers interested in selling on the WhatsGood online platform should contact Jim Barber at Jrb248@cornell.edu, or 607-231-3821, or David Cox at dgc23@cornell.edu, or 607-437-9794.
