Go MarketNC Pre-Launch Benefit at Fullsteam Brewery

Dozens of farmers get turned away every year at traditional farmers’ markets like the Durham Farmers’ Market. It’s not because they don’t like farmers, it’s because they simply don’t have enough space! goMarket is an innovative marketplace that combines online shopping with distribution model similar to “Community Supported Agriculture” (CSA) distribution models which involve a weekly share of farm products that come based on what’s in season. Online pre-orders make things easier for both farmers and consumers, while reducing food waste and drive time. Unlike CSAs, you, the customer pick what goes in your box every week and you can choose products from more than one farm.

We’re preparing for a big fundraiser party at Fullsteam on March 17th from 1-5pm and so come hang out on a Sunday afternoon, listen to some music, play games with your kids and bid on items including:

*Poster signed by the Duke basketball team!
*Farm consultation with Eric Bowen, systems agroecologist, soil scientist and goMarketNC founder
*Exclusive private farm dinner for two with ChirbaChirba chef, and il Palio Pastry Master, Ashley Cogdell (which farm TBA)

Live music will be provided by:

Featuring
Ryan Gustafson with Josh Moore!
Steph and the Boyfriends!

To keep up with new developments ‘like’ our Facebook page: goMarketNC or follow us on Twitter: goMarketNC

goMarket is built on top of the amazing software package, Locally Grown. goMarket’s founder Eric Bowen briefly used their flagship market, Athens Locally Grown, while serving as interim director and farm manager at Spring Valley Ecofarms, in Athens, GA. Impressed by the platform it provides to beginning farmers, he decide it was just what was needed to help Durham, NC and the Research Triangle keep pushing the front edge of food system innovation.

We’ve started connecting with business, non-profits in the area. We’d love to hear from you if you’re an interested farmer, restaurant or customer. Email eric.c.bowen gmail with any questions. If you’d like to support goMarket in your year end giving, please consider making a tax-deductible donation to our ioby.org crowdfunding campaign:
