New NY Online Farmers Market!
Rural communities in New York face challenges to sustain their local agriculture. Supporting local food infrastructure is a first step towards decreasing energy use and contributing to improving local water quality.
The Environmental Finance Center is proud to launch NYfoodtrader.org, a virtual farmers market that connects NY producers, consumers, and traders.
We love NY and hope that this new web tool facilitates networking between NY Producers and NY Consumers.
Sign up today at NYfoodtrader.org!
