CitySprout.com is a service that delivers local farm fresh produce to a group of CitySprout members weekly to specific locations. It’s kind of like arranging your own personalized farmers market.
CitySprout’s Director of Marketing and Operations, Robin DeMartino, says the online marketplace connects communities and businesses with local farmers to provide convenient, delicious farm fresh food.
CitySprout is about to launch its first delivery in New York City and hoping to expand to other big cities soon after. Campaigns have already been launched in Chicago, Los Angeles, Boston and Austin, Texas.
Here’s how the service works.
-Someone sponsors a location (i.e. neighborhood, local church, business, etc.).
-That location needs 100 people to sign up free of charge (only e-mail required) on CitySprout’s campaign page: www.ciytsprout.com/sprout. No fees, obligations, no commitments.
-On a weekly basis, local farmers deliver produce, meats, or dairy to that location where CitySprout members get to choose what they want, if any.
“CitySprout.com doesn’t only put money back into our struggling economy, but makes living and eating healthy easier for people in cities”, says DeMartino.
Since CitySprout is brand new, they are hoping folks in cities across the country will start campaigns on CitySprout’s homepage and kick off a trend of healthy and convenient living.
