Market Wagon LLC, a company focused on helping farmers get their products to local customers, launched its online farmers market and delivery service in the Upstate area.
The home delivery area includes Greenville, Spartanburg, Anderson, Pickens, Oconee, Greenwood, Laurens, Cherokee and Union counties in South Carolina as well as Henderson, Polk, Rutherford and South-Central Buncombe counties in North Carolina.
“Market Wagon’s mission is to enable food producers to thrive in their local and regional markets,” said Market Wagon co-founder Dan Brunner. “[The company] provides exceptional choice and service to their nearby customers who will know exactly where their food comes from. We have attracted plenty of attention from the Upstate South Carolina shoppers and food producers eager for our launch. Our online store contains everything you’d expect to find at a physical farmers market — local farm-fresh eggs, dairy, meat, produce, baked goods and more.”
The company’s service allows customers to browse locally grown products on their computers or smartphones throughout the week and place an order from multiple local vendors with one single checkout. Orders are delivered each Thursday afternoon in insulated totes using ice packs as needed to preserve freshness.
Market Wagon features more than 170 local products but has vendors loading new products every day.
Customers do not have to pay an upfront fee or long-term subscription to shop, and interested food producers may apply to be a vendor at marketwagon.com.
The company also operates local food networks in St. Louis, Missouri; Indianapolis, Indiana; Nashville, Tennessee; Knoxville, Tennessee; and Louisville, Kentucky.
